Father of fallen Muslim US soldier makes powerful statement to Trump

NY Times:

Father to Trump: ‘You’ve Sacrificed Nothing’

Capt. Humayun Khan of the Army was killed in Iraq. More than a decade later, his father offered a rebuke of Mr. Trump’s immigration proposals and his ideas on religious tolerance.
This is probably the most effective case made against Trump at the DNC.  It works on several levels especially since the Trump sons who spoke at the convention were probably pretty close in age to Capt. Khan.

It does not negate the dangers posed by importing immigrants from a war zone, but it is a counter argument to treating all of them as a threat.
