An undocumented worker who was fired from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminister, N.J., after going public about her immigration status, will reportedly attend President Trump’s State of the Union address next week.
Victorina Morales was fired after she publicly disclosed her immigration status, according to The Washington Post, which first reported the news that Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-N.J., had invited her to attend.
Morales, who is originally from Guatemala, told The New York Times in December that she had been working illegally as a housekeeper at Trump’s Bedminster property for more than five years. She had entered the U.S. in California in 1999 and eventually made her way to Bound Brook, N.J.
The Times reported that Morales has “made Trump’s bed, cleaned his toilet and dusted his crystal golf trophies” during her time working at the Bedminster club.
The report comes after the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, abruptly fired about a dozen employees because they were found to have been living in the U.S. illegally.
The Washington Post reported on Saturday that the firings came after the Trump company conducted an audit of the individuals’ immigration documents.
Members of Congress typically invite individuals who have gained national attention as their guests for State of the Union speeches, when the president addresses both chambers of Congress.
Trump is slated to deliver his rescheduled address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., delayed the speech, originally scheduled for Jan. 29, until the government shutdown was over and the government was fully reopened.
