Time to give the Statue of Liberty back to France.
   
Considering the stance of many Americans on immigration and the growing xenophobia that exists, perhaps it is time to give the lady in the harbor back to France.

Granted that the US has, since the start of this country, taken a very hostile view of people coming in, the present situation makes a mockery of the statue and the inscription.

Once, for a very short time, that inscription may have been true. Now this country is like an armed fortress against the world.

Um, wait a minute.  Most of us are okay with legal immigrants.  It is you DUmmies that complain about companies legally bringing in the workers they need.
Al Qaeda wants to abolish the country we know and love. They better hurry up because Obama is beating them to it!

Awesome response, sir.

Not one, but two, kicks in the nuts to the primitives.

According to the Progressive Wikipedia, this is the origin of the Statue of Liberty:

Quote
The origin of the Statue of Liberty project is generally traced to a comment made by French law professor and politician Édouard René de Laboulaye in mid-1865. In after-dinner conversation at his home near Versailles, Laboulaye, an ardent supporter of the Union in the American Civil War, stated, "If a monument should rise in the United States, as a memorial to their independence, I should think it only natural if it were built by united effort—a common work of both our nations.


Quote
Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions . . . Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.' Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man. Cicero

Also to add to what you said, the mindset of legal immigrants are totally different than the mindset of illegals, legal immigrants come here because they want to be Americans, illegals come here for money, they have no allegiance at all to the Country.

That sums up the link between DUmmies and illegals quite well. Birds of a feather and all.

Not only that, but legal immigrants come here to better the country because most come from some shit hole and have experienced the lack of freedome we have here.

Illegals are doin' nothin' more than exporting the dregs of their own societies to the US in order to send their cash back to other dregs of the society they come from! ie, MS 13, the Mexican Mafia, etc!

Even the "Green Card farmers" contribute to America in a way to help themselves. It's the Drug Cartels that are doin' nothin' more than takin' advantage of American Law, in order to increase their wealth and power over those that cannot defend themselves! And the frikkin' DemonRats consider them a voting block! How ****ed up is that?

It's not just the money, it's the benefits they can get for free in this country because of the Democrats wanting the votes and their need to feel sorry for those that broke the law.

They can pretty much get free healthcare in Mehico, too, it's just not worth a shit!

Hey DUmmies! We're not against immigrants coming to America. It's the ones that come here ILlegally that we have a problem with. Legals come to America with dreams of the American dream and are trying to provide for their family and themselves, to have a better life in other words. ILlegals come here to spit on our flag, not pay into the system, bring crime into the country and help collapse our system by taking advantage of gubberment programs. Does everything have to be explained to you DUmmies, so you understand things a little better?? :banghead: :banghead:
