Give Us Your Tired, Your Poor -- August 19, 2019

Ken Cuccinelli, acting head of Citizenship and Immigration Services, attacked and degraded immigration and the Statue of Liberty. Referring to the poem by Emma Lazarus, Cuccinelli, who ancestors must have come through Ellis Island, said the US is only interested in immigrants who can "stand on their own two feet" and "not become a public charge." Later he said "Give us your tired, your poor" only applies to Europeans. Shame on him.
