“Give me your tired, your poor . . .”
Today, the 28th of October, is the 120th anniversary of the official acceptance (by U.S. President Grover Cleveland) of the Statue of Liberty, a gift from the people of France.
I give you Emma Lazarus’ noble words (attached to the base in 1903) in ironic observance of this week’s signing of legislation calling for a new fence on our southern border.
