    Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach describes itself as “one of the most highly regarded private clubs in the world,” and it is not just the very-well-to-do who want to get in. Since 2010, nearly 300 United States residents have applied or been referred for jobs as waiters, waitresses, cooks and housekeepers there. But according to federal records, only 17 have been hired. In all but a handful of cases, Mar-a-Lago sought to fill the jobs with hundreds of foreign guest workers from Romania and other countries. In his quest for the Republican presidential nomination, Mr. Trump has stoked his crowds by promising to bring back jobs that have been snatched by illegal immigrants or outsourced by corporations, and voters worried about immigration have been his strongest backers. But he has also pursued more than 500 visas for foreign workers at Mar-a-Lago since 2010, according to the United States Department of Labor, while hundreds of domestic applicants failed to get the same jobs.

    Actually my concern is not about immigrants taking a job - but the bigger issue is immigrants - especially, illegals who are on the American welfare system.

    I do have some questions:
    How many jobs were available for those 300 applicants
    How many of the applicants were not qualified for the job
    How many of the applicants did not want to accept the terms of the employment?

    I'm sure there may be more questions

    Keep in mind - I am not trying to justify why so many citizens were not give the job -
    I just want to know all three sides of the story.

    Yes, don't we know that Trump is for the little guy, will make America Great Again, yada yada yada. It's just that his record doesn't match his rhetoric. Perhaps that "phony" label isn't too far off.
