Sandra Diaz and Victorina Morales on Wednesday appeared with Biden at the union's town hall in Las Vegas and shared a hug with the former vice president onstage.  

The appearance came as Biden's immigration plan, which would scrap a number of Trump administration policies, was released on Wednesday. 


Diaz and Morales, who opened up about their past experiences working for Trump's New Jersey club, took aim at his immigration policies at the event. 

"[Trump] still lies about immigrants," Diaz said, according to Bloomberg. "We are good workers and good people." 

The women also appeared with Warren at the union's town hall on Monday.

“I am here for all immigrants,” Morales said, according to the Courthouse News Service. “We are not rapists. We are not liars. We are here for everyone. Let’s come out of the shadows and tell the truth.”

Diaz and Morales have been publicly active in denouncing Trump's immigration policies. The pair joined a larger group of undocumented immigrants, who were also fired from Trump's properties, for an immigration reform event rivaling Trump's reelection campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, Fla., earlier this year.
