A MELTING POT NO MORE

The words on the base of the Statue of Liberty come from the last five lines of a poem titled "The New Colossus." 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-tossed to me/I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"



At one time in our history these words used to mean something, but now they are just empty words.
