Lady Liberty weeps
Her, the Mother of exiles
Her land of humility overcome with pomp
Her true descendants receive
The tired, the poor, the huddled masses

In my opinion, the United States should return to its roots as a place of welcoming and inviting people from all over the globe, refugees, exiles, the poor, the forsaken of the world. The Statue of Liberty and its inscription, “New Colossus” by poet Emma Lazarus symbolize that sentiment.
I am re-posting this poem as a response to the racism and diabolical immigration policies practiced by our current administration in protest of their inhumane treatment of non-whites from around the world. It is a disgrace.
