A Face Behind Trump’s Hate.

This is 2Lt Alix Schoelcher Idrache. When he came to America from Donald Trump’s “shithole” of Haiti he could barely speak English. Three years later through his hard work, that included two years in the Army as a enlisted soldier, he was accepted to West Point.

He graduated as a Regimental Commander and West Point’s top student in physics. He was accepted to the elite Army Aviation Center for Excellence at Fort Rucker to become an Army pilot.

This picture was taken at his graduation. If you don’t see in those tear filled eyes a man who loves this nation more than most natural born Americans, then you are as blind as our President.

This is the kind of person our President wants to deny because he came from what our President deems a “shithole” country. He came here (sponsored by his father) via “chain immigration” that Trump wants to end.

I think America is better off with people like 2Lt Idrache. Not having people like him is a loss to all of us. His American dream is also America’s dream. Share if you agree.
