    61% Say Enforcing Immigration Laws Would Cut Poverty - Rasmussen Reports™

    That quote on the Statue of Liberty was never there when the French gave it to us. It was added well into the 20th Century. Added not by a vote of the people but by a pro-immgration poet who somehow successfully lobbied to get it snuck in.

    Besides, there is quite a difference between immigration over 100 years ago and now. 100 years ago there was still vast unsettled territory and absolutely no welfare state. People came here to work. Even then we kept a close eye on immigration and even passed the fair and level-headed national origins immigration act in 1925. We need that act re-instated.

    The inscription on the Statue of Liberty is—poetry on a work of art—not a law or government policy of the USA.
