    Hmmm...I wonder what percentages there are in the limbless category.

    "Give me your tired, Your poor,
    Your huddled masses, yearning to be free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these the homeless, tempest tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
    Emma Lazarus,
    On a plaque, at the base of the Statue of Liberty.
    What happened?

    Was never a part of the original statue of liberty. Added decades later.
    " the entire poem is much longer, and according to historians, speaks to the work Lazarus did to be a spokeswoman for the Jewish community and welcome Russian refugees in the 1880s."
    Privileged upper class female New York Jewess asked to write a poem for sale to raise funds for the base of the statue.
    The New Colossus
    "Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows worldwide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    “Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
    With silent lips. “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!”

    You want to come legally? Follow the rules. You want to request asylum or refugee status? Follow the rules. We don't need more "huddled masses". We're already paying through the nose for illegals.

    There is a cost for the illegals, might even be a higher cost for the legal immigrants. It's a really difficult issue to solve, and not enough are trying to solve it, and some are aiding and abetting. This will be a difficult issue to solve, I don't think a "wall" will do it, but it wouldn't hurt. Trump will be badly out-gunned after the midterms, so I don't see anything getting done on this. :cool:

    HUNDREDS OF MIGRANTS STORM SPANISH BORDER, ATTACK POLICE WITH ACID
    Video shows virtually zero women or children as “refugees” celebrate wildly
    Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com - AUGUST 23, 2018
    Over 100 African migrants stormed into the Spanish territory of Ceuta from Morocoo on Wednesday, attacking police with acid.

    “The migrants, some with bloodied arms and legs from climbing over the razor wire at the top of the border fences, cheered as they walked towards a temporary reception centre,” reports Voice of Europe. “The television images showed the mostly young men some shouting, “I love Spain!” with others draped in European Union and Spanish flags.”

    Seven Spanish police officers suffered burns as a result of a corrosive substance being thrown at them by the migrants.

    Out of the entire group of migrants, there are virtually no women or children. The migrants are seen celebrating wildly and performing Islamic prayers.



    It was later reported that the migrants were returned to Morocco thanks to an agreement between the two countries.
    Spain has become the number one point of arrival for migrants crossing the sea to Europe in 2018, with over 21,000 arrivals so far, a process that has quickened after the country’s socialist government gave the green light for open borders.
    Last month, police warned that 50,000 illegal migrants from sub-Saharan Africa were waiting in Morocco to invade Spain.
    Videos of boatloads of migrants washing up on Spanish beaches have also become commonplace.
    Back in July, around 800 sub-Saharan migrants attempted to cross the border between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, throwing feces, burning quicklime, stones and Molotov cocktails at border police while using homemade flamethrowers and saws to dismantle barriers.
    Around 600 of them succeeded in crossing the border. Video from the scene shows migrants wildly rampaging through the streets while screaming deliriously.

    This is simple stuff........if you make it very disagreeable, hurtful, harmful, to go to one place and you make it comfortable, with benefits to go to another place......people will not go to the "bad" place and will migrate to the "nice" place.....it's human nature.

    Over time, ultimately, the nice place will no longer be nice and will detreriorate into a hell-hole....the lowest common denominator will prevail, because there are so many of them.

    You have to figure out what kind of a place you want and do those things to make it happen.....thing is, if you wait too long, you won't be able to reverse things.

    Coming to a city near you....is no joke.

    Short answer is they closed Ellis Island. Before that Castle Clinton processed most immigrants to make sure they were disease free and not a menace to society.

    A procedure and proper vetting is all most people ask for. If you jump the fence that should be dealt with quickly and as forcefully as necessary. It's no different that breaking and entering into a citizens home.

    It's a little different than breaking into somebody's house, but yes, the borders do need to be secured. There are so many roadblocks, I don't think anything will be done, to accomplish any effective, border security. :cool:
