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!

Thats Statue of Liberty welcoming immigrants. WE ARE A GREAT NATION because of IMMIGRANTS. Look at Australia's reaction to immigration. No wonder they are the white trash of the western world.

Our society is more fragmented than we would like it to be. But Mr 'Humble', your society is 100 times MORE fragmented than ours! The most divisive thing that we could do would be to follow in your footsteps. And forget your Statue of Liberty ... it took a Paris-dwelling Frenchman to design and build it.
