A well-documented immigrant said he was a janitor of a shooting game owned by President Donald Trump’s oldest sons and that he worked without permission on one of the president’s golf courses before he lost both jobs this year.

Caretaker Juan Quintero, 42, told NBC News he was working at the Hudson Valley in Hopewell Junction in New York from the year 2000 until he lost his job in January, when the Trump properties took action to clear their employees who were working illegally. Trump acquired the golf course in 2009.

Quintero, who said he came to the United States from Mexico more than two decades ago, also said he also worked on the Leather Hill Preserve hunting area in Wingdale, owned by Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. . and others, from 201

6 until this year.

Quintero said he interacted directly with Eric Trump when he worked as a contractor at Leather Hill. He said he thought it was possible that the president’s son knew he wasn’t authorized to work in the US – even though he couldn’t say for sure.

“As the son of the president, I think he will never say” oh I knew, “Quintero said in Spanish. He said he never told Trump that he was uncoded and Trump never questioned him.” I think he knew, but I can’t assure you 100 percent if he knew or not, “Quinero said.

His employment for the Trump family was first reported by the Washington Post.

NBC News has reviewed document

Trump Organization did not respond to NBC Newss’ request for comment.

In a previous statement, Eric Trump – who, along with Donald Trump Jr. took over the management of his father’s business – said the Trump organization had “very strict” employment procedures for its “tens of thousands of “19659006]” If any employee provided false documentation to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately, “he said when NBC News reached him in January on reports that Trump N ational Golf Club employed well-documented workers.

Eric Trump told the Washington Post at the end of January that the company started on all of its real estate use of E-Verify, a program that allows employers to check whether new employment can legally work in the United States.

Quintero said when he was hired by the golf course’s former owners, he presented them with false documents and “They never asked me if they were real or false.”

When Trump took over the property, he was not questioned about his actions, so he.

Quintero said he was never asked to provide documents for the job for the hunt

In a text exchange dated April last year and shown to NBC News, a number that matched Eric Trump’s phone text Quintero. NBC News has not verified that the number belongs to Eric Trump.

“Juan – just checking in on the corn. It should be planted the first week of May. Are we ready?

” Hope you are good! “Read the next message.

Quintero said he had a” good relationship “with Eric Trump, add in Spanish,” he was happy with my work It was good communication. “

In January, a representative from the golf club came to Quintero and told him he had left documents that were not authentic and that he had about 20 days to fix them,” he said.

“I knew they weren’t well, so I had to go, he said.

Quintero’s lawyer Anibal Romero told NBC News that he represents dozens of immigrants ex-employees in the Trump organization and that these workers said many more were employed by the company over the years.

After the New York Times reported on well-documented housekeepers on a Trump golf course in December, the company began firing unauthorized workers.

NBC News has spoken to a dozen former workers at the Trump golf courses that were illegal in the country. Ten immigrants working at the Trump National Golf Club in New York were fired in January, the workers interviewed by NBC News and their lawyer said.

Quintero said he was speaking now to show the president “more than anything” what kind of people he and the other immigrants who worked for him are – as opposed to the president’s previous comments to label illegal immigrants as “criminals”.

“So he and all American people know we are actually contributing to the country,” he said. “We are not a burden and we are not what he thinks.”
