In immigration debate, remember these words

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Concerning the arguments over the immigration questions of the thousands of fleeing children on the Mexican border, we’ve heard a lot of people talking on both sides. I think there is a very nice poem which perhaps covers the controversy.

It reads, “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!”

That’s the Emma Lazarus poem which is engraved on the base of the Statue of Liberty.
