Ruh-roh! The Donald's comments on immigration in this country reportedly aren't sitting well with the workers at his latest luxury hotel.
Not a day goes by as of late when you don't catch headline featuring Donald Trump.
It all started with this now-infamous quote from Trump, stated during his presidential announcement at an event last month: "When Mexico sends its people they aren't sending their best. They are bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they are rapists and some are good people but I speak to border guards and they tell us what we're getting.”
Still, despite these comments on immigration, the presidential hopeful is reportedly gaining in the polls.
And he's a GOP frontrunner, even though a multitude of companies backed out of business partnerships with Trump.
Can anything stop Donald Trump?
Now, the Washington Post is reporting that Trump "may be relying on some undocumented workers to finish the $200 million hotel" which will reside in Washington D.C. A spokeswoman for Trump allegedly responded by stating "the company and its contractors follow all applicable laws." Even if the Post's allegation is untrue, it still didn't seem to sit well with some of the documented workers.
One of them, a 29-year-old mason named Ivan Arellano, reportedly said to the paper: "It's something ironic...The majority of us are Hispanics, many who came illegally...And we're all here working very hard to build a better life for our families."
The Post contends it interviewed about 15 laborers who are working on Trump's latest site. Many of them told the paper that they "had crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally before they eventually settled in the Washington region to build new lives."
Will this latest report hurt Trump's chances at the nomination? What do you think of Donald Trump's comments? Sound off below!
