As Donald Trump explained his anti-immigration platform on Wednesday, which comes complete with a US-Mexico border wall and no path to obtaining legal citizenship for those who have committed crimes, the Trump modeling agency continues to hire illegal immigrant workers and steal their earnings – according to four models previously employed by Trump’s agency.
The models gave their reports to Mother Jones magazine.
CNN hosted an exclusive interview with James West, a senior correspondent at Mother Jones magazine, and Canadian-born Rachel Blais, who is blowing the whistle on Trump Model Management. The other models who gave reports have chosen to remain anonymous.
Allegations of violating US visa laws aren’t the only crimes the Trump agency routinely commits, according to the models who were mistreated during their illegal employment. “Honestly, they are the most crooked agency I’ve ever worked for, and I’ve worked for quite a few,” said Blais.
Blais said Trump’s agency would charge her for “expenses that they faked” so they could pay her less.
She accuses the agency of routinely lying about rent and housing expenses, so they could make as much money off of her while she and the other girls worked illegally without work visas. This also allowed the agency to avoid paying the appropriate taxes on her labor.
Blais came to New York to work for Trump Model Management in 2004 and was given housing in a small apartment with 7 other women.
Blais says of the apartment, “it was one of the worst I’ve ever lived in.” She says the agency is “one of the most crooked.. when it comes to financial accounts and statements.”
There are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living and working in the US. Trump encouraged these immigrants to leave the US and re-enter legally by obtaining a visa. Blais reported that none of the 7 models she lived with while employed by the Trump agency had visas.
Donald Trump only hates immigrant when they don’t work for him. He exploits his workers just like he will exploit the presidency for his own twisted benefit. In Don’s dystopian nightmare, everyone and everything will be used for pleasure, especially if they’re pretty and white.
