Trump’s vulgar remark on Haiti, Africa leaves immigrants baffled
by Phil Helsel and James Rainey
After President Donald Trump asked why the United States would want people from "shithole countries," referring to Haiti and those in Africa, Judelande Calix of Maryland had a query of her own.
"My question is, why not?" said Calix, who is in her mid-30s and came to the United States from Haiti in the late 1990s.
Calix went to college; her husband, Marc, also from Haiti, is a neurophysiologist, and "countless" other people they know are immigrants who are contributing to this country, she said Thursday in a phone interview.
