The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"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-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

NEW REPUBLICAN EXCEPTION:

Children that had no choice in coming here should be deported. Sure, the US may have spent trillions destroying and then rebuilding muslim countries but GOD forbid we're going to allow people to stay in the only county they've ever known. It's the principle of the thing.

How do the Middle East wars and immigration tie in with a "NEW REPUBLICAN EXCEPTION" (whatever that is?)???

The president's new "illegal" immigration policy is just the first step toward total amnesty.

First, it's those under 30 that can stay.
Next, it will be those who own homes or business's.
Then the parents of those under 30.
Then those enrolled in school or college.
Then those willing to join the military.

Finally, just give them all amnesty.
That's the plan, so what are you complaining about?

The front door there bucko, not sneaking in the back door and hiding.

Just so you know, the parents of these "children" knew the consequences of coming here ILLEGALLY and did it anyway. The repercussions of that act are on them, not on some sympathetic jackass in the white house. Deport the whole family, let the parents repatriot their children to their home country.

An eloquent criticism of socialist Europe to be sure.

As for the illegal Mexican kids, they can thank their parents for getting them tangled up like this.

Perhaps a few million of them can reshape Mexico when they go back.

This poem is absurd. It's basically asking the world to send us its lowlifes. Instead of tired, poor, retched refuse it should be asking for intelligent, productive, hard working, law abiding people who want to be Americans.

One little problem with your whine...

That poem says nothing about people breaking down the door, or climbing through an open window, and entering this country against our rule of law.

Interestingly one thing it does say is for those who come here is to "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!". Guess La Raza, those who seek to impose Sharia law, and those who refuse to assimilate, once they are here missed that part.

People have many views on the poem. Glenn Beck (love him or hate him) has an interesting take on it...

Here is another view on the poem from the Jewish Woman's Archive:

"The New Colossus" is a sonnet by Emma Lazarus (1864–1887), written in 1883 and, in 1903, engraved on a bronze plaque and mounted inside the lower level of the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty.

So, it has been a significant part of one of the greatest symbols of our country for 109 years.

And, yet, all you geniuses now attack it and bring in the liberal/conservative polarized hatred. Haters gotta hate.

It's a beautiful poem, that's all. It's not a liberal poem. It's not a conservative poem. It's just a lovely poem.

But, it's a poem whose time has long since passed.

...and it referred to LEGAL immigrants who came here legally to become American citizens.

It does NOT apply to the criminals coming here illegally just to take advantage of what America has to offer.

BIG DIFFERENCE!

Maybe if you libs would gain some self control and stop using drugs, Hispanics wouldn't have to flee their countries destroyed by drug cartels (domestic terrorists). You guys are funding the destroying of Latin American countries that did nothing to us or anyone else, and instead of rebuilding them you just keep destroying them. Spending money to fund the GWOT is wrong, but spending money to fund narco-terrorists is okay as long as you can feel good for a few minutes?
