    ---------------------------------------------------------------------- your declaration is foolishness and is meaningless . I hope that you and the other open border types have kids that can eventually recognize and fully appreciate the society that you are building for them Ringell !!

    What you buffoons are doing is distracting away from the FACT that Ellis Island closed because it WAS NO LONGER NEEDED. Distract all you want the truth will not change

    Ellis Island was never renovated as a continuing immigrant entryway to America, it was and is CLOSED for it's original purpose. Get a grip

    It has been fully renovated.....I have been there
    It is renovated as a museum, not as an in-processing center for immigrants that was no longer needed

    Immigrants flying into New York no longer needed an island to dock at

    Nice view of the Statue of Liberty by the way.....Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free

    So you are saying that all the Worlds poor and destitute have the money to fly their entire family on American airlines?

    Try again stupid, they still come mostly by ship or boat. Furthermore all air travelers come thru customs, God u r stupid

    They headed for Ellis Island?

    They do have a ferry that will take you there. It does get crowded like that on busy weekends
