Yah, though why I cannot fathom. Worse, to me, is that we have leaders and politicians who are seeking to "turn us into the same kind of shit-pile they left." For some cheap votes, some cheaper labor, or just because they harbor some grudge against the country.
Or maybe they want to be the "shining city on the hill" Reagan proclaimed, welcoming all begruding none. Perhaps they read the plaque on the Statue of Liberty and had the gall to believe it.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "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!"
No one read the disclaimer saying; "Valid for all immigrants excluding tired, poor, brown, yellow, black, non-white, non-Christian, non-wealthy, non-healthy, non-male, non-Birchist, non-gun loving and Irish. Offer valid through December 31, 1899."
Liberal educators failed to read us that part.
