Could you imagine being one of the immigrants on Ellis Island, looking across to the Statue of Liberty while waiting to hear if you've made the cut to remain in the United States? "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!"
