"Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Masses Yearning To Breathe Free"


by: Katherine Haenschen

"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
!"

-- "The New Colossus," by Emma Lazarus
(Inscription on the base of the Statue of Liberty)


"Then he will say also to those on the left hand, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you didn't give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and you didn't take me in; naked, and you didn't clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn't visit me.'

"Then they will also answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn't help you?'

"Then he will answer them, saying, 'Most certainly I tell you, inasmuch as you didn't do it to one of the least of these, you didn't do it to me.'"

-- Matthew 25


"Nobody is doing these children the slightest favor by delaying a rapid return to their countries of origin," [Rick] Perry said, referring to reports of violence, rape and human trafficking endured by women and children during their journeys from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

"Those who come must be sent back to demonstrate in no uncertain terms that risking your lives on the top of those trains, and the way they're coming here, it's not worth that," [Perry] said.

-- Rick Perry, quoted in the Austin American Statesman






Happy Fourth of July to everyone who came and continues to come to America seeking a better life. I hope our country can continue to make good on that promise.
