Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
Tempest-tossed to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!


Soon to be posted at intervals on the border.

Where does the poem say you can come here illegally? The golden door isn't the back door. We are no longer a wide open frontier in need of workers and builders of this country. We have over 315 million people in this country now with shortages of jobs and resources. Was the poem meant to imply that there should be no limits whatsover on the number of human bodies we should absorb into this country to the point of committing national suicide? Most who are coming here illegally aren't homeless and most are already breathing in the free country called their homeland. Nice try though. It fails everytime.

Those words placed on the Staue of Liberty makes some people's skin cringe...because it stands for the real America...true American values. 150 years ago and today.

They are about to get a another lesson in American Liberty.

Doesn't make me cringe at all since it was written during a different time and under different circumstances. What makes me cringe is when one tries to stretch the poem to mean come here irregardless of our immigration laws and regardless of the much higher population we have now compared to then. American values and laws are to come here legally not illegally. If that poem were to be taken literally and forever then we would have no immigration laws today. What you are implying is that we have no right to immigration laws today based on some poem on the Statue of Liberty that came from the French anyway.

American Liberty? So in otherwords American liberty means open borders with no immigration laws? You can't be serious.
