Over the last two months, the Trump Organization fired at least 18 undocumented immigrants working at five of its golf clubs in New York and New Jersey, Eric Trump told The Washington Post on Monday.

Eric Trump and his brother, Donald Trump Jr., are leading the Trump Organization while their father is in the White House. In December, The New York Times reported that several undocumented immigrants were working at a New Jersey club, which triggered an internal audit, the Post says. Several people who were fired last month told the Post they used false Social Security and green cards to gain employment, and their supervisors were aware that these were fake documents.
