CNN Anchor Confronts Border Chief With Reports of Undocumented Migrants Working for Trump Businesses

CNN anchor Jake Tapper confronted the director of the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) company on Sunday with reviews of undocumented immigrants working at companies owned by President Donald Trump.

During CNN’s State of the Union, Tapper interviewed performing CBP commissioner Mark Morgan about current raids on companies using undocumented migrants. Citing a weekend report by The Washington Post concerning the Trump Organization’s hiring of undocumented migrants, Tapper requested why the president’s companies have by no means been raided.

“This is just one of many headlines about undocumented immigrants working for President Trump’s properties—whether it’s his construction crews, [people] working at his properties [or people] working at his golf clubs. There have been zero raids on any of these companies despite headline after headline after headline,” Tapper identified. “It seems like you guys are turning a blind eye to this crime being committed by the president’s own companies,” he stated.

Instead of addressing why Trump’s firms haven’t been focused, Morgan, beforehand performing director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stated he took “offense” at anyone saying brokers had “turned a blind eye to someone that is violating the law.”

But Tapper pressed his level, saying he did not perceive why there’s “never been a raid” or “any sort of law enforcement investigation” at Trump properties.

Morgan responded that Tapper couldn’t “say that for sure,” arguing that investigations are sometimes ongoing with out the general public being conscious and it might “jeopardize” one if he talked about it on the present.

According tothe Post— and quite a few different media shops—at the very least eight Trump properties have employed undocumented employees.

Former Trump Organization worker Jorge Castro informed the Post that “papers don’t matter” to the president’s firms for those who’re “a good worker.” The Ecuadorian immigrant, who doesn’t have authorized standing within the U.S., labored for the Trump Organization for 9 years till final spring.

Trump says he “doesn’t want undocumented people in the country,” Castro stated. “But at his properties, he still has them.”
