"All law is based upon supporting, and upholding the rights granted to
us under the Constitution."
This is what most people you discuss this issue with believe. I
disagree strongly with the latter part of that sentence. The rights
and privileges "granted" by the Constitution are only reaffirmations
of vested, owned rights. You are born with them, regardless of place
or nation of birth. The rights outlined in the Constitution aren't
copyrighted by Americans. And regardless of your spiritual and ethical
beliefs about how we all got here, the fact remains that in order to
uphold the ideals outlined in the Constitution of the united States of
America (proper form of address-sp. included) you must agree that
these rights are universally applied and thus, one of the foundations
of this nation being that of being open to all comers.
Anyway, that's my 2cts.
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 world-wide 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!"
