WHO SHOULD THE U.S. ADMIT AS IMMIGRANTS?

The launch of the Trump Administration's new green card immigration policy has generated a fierce debate about who the U.S. should take in as immigrants. Isn't U.S. policy indeed to take in the poor masses of the world, the "huddled masses" as described in the Emma Lazarus poem that was put in a panel in the base of the Statue of Liberty in 1903, almost two decades after the Statue was dedicated?

The gift of France, the statue commemorated the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, which lit the beacon of liberty and freedom around the world. It had nothing to with immigration.

Since many immigrants had come through nearby Ellis Island in New York's harbor, the National Park Service thought it would be a nice tribute to add the Lazarus poem in a plaque in the base of the statue. Thus, for some, was born the idea that the U.S. would welcome whoever wanted to come, however destitute, however unfit.

All nations prefer to select their immigrants and those who will contribute to the growth and success of a nation are of course to be preferred.

In a debate in Canada last year the mass migration of Muslims pouring into Europe was the topic. Mark Steyn's closing remarks were spot on to win the debate and to make clear why the Emma Lazarus poem is no guide for an immigration policy at any time and certainly not now.
