Cuccinelli torches famous Statue of Liberty immigrant quote
"Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge," the acting USCIS chief said.
By Allan Smith


"In an effort to defend a new Trump administration rule aimed at making it harder for poorer legal immigrants to stay in the U.S., acting Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli offered a new take Tuesday on the poem attached to the Statue of Liberty."
"Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge," Cuccinelli said during in an interview with NPR's "Morning Edition."

How soon Cuccinelli forgets that his own original and fellow Latins - the Italians came into this country seeking alms as well. By changing the immigrant quote to what he now has it to read it does a great disservice to "Los Italianos" as well as others as that quote was meant to read just as it originally read to show that America is a caring and compassionate country just as it has always been for decades and longer when it was Number 1. But leave it to the cruelty of this present administration to want to destroy its beautiful meaning. They sure do a great job of it don't they.

There were no welfare programs back then.

As far as that poem, it was never a part of the Statue of Liberty, but rather was on a plaque placed inside the pedestal years after it was erected.

The Democrat Party wants a socialist country with more open borders. That is not sustainable.

There's a lot of people from other countries that you just don't want to cross your borders.

Since when? You do that comment was kind of racist right? But then again Ken has always been kind of idiot.

Since when?
Like when the Muslim immigrants that have run over people with cars/vans, stabbed kids with butcher knives and shot people in terrorist attacks.

You don't want those types of immigrants coming across our border.

The immigrant quote has been an icon revered by so many throughout the ages. Only uncaring fools who like to support the rich would think differently.
