“When the Goddess of Liberty was given to the United States (in 1886) its donor’s agenda was to burnish France’s republican roots after the oppressive reign of Napoleon III and to celebrate the two nations’ commitment to the principles of liberty,” the New York Times reported in 2011.
“The only immigrants mentioned at the dedication in 1886 were the ‘illustrious descendants of the French nobility’ who fought on behalf of the United States against Britain during the American Revolution,” the Times reported.
Emma Lazarus’s poem only belatedly became synonymous with the Statute of Liberty,” the Times reported.
Yes, the Statue of Liberty, a gift from the French people to Americans in 1886, celebrates both countries commitment to liberty, not any right to immigrate to the United States. France’s republican roots celebrates the rule of law, over tyranny and the rule of men. Our laws, which are being broken left and right by illegal immigrants is a violation of that value or commitment to follow the law, and its dispassionate and even handed enforcement. Why Donald J. Trump overwhelmingly garnered the vote of people of Scotch-Irish heritage that settled, and conquered this land. Yes, illegal immigration violates the general will of the American people, that lawful entry into our country is the fairest and the most secure form of immigration, that adjusts population according to actual job creation which preserves the standard of living of our most vulnerable citizens and taxpayers. As Milton Friedman observed, free immigration and a welfare state are oxymorons that would over run the country’s finances. Why sponsors of immigration should bear, as Trump includes in his bill on legal immigration, any welfare costs of said immigrants paid for with tax dollars. However, the costs of illegal immigration should be paid by the country of origin, since that tab is now estimated to be around $54.5 billion, as estimated by the Heritage Foundation.–Jason Richwine, Ph.D. and Robert Rector, Heritage Foundation, “The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer.”–What the globalists have done is to get American taxpayers to subsidize the globalist scheme to bypass national sovereignty and self determination for purposes of worldwide amalgamation. More importantly, as we clearly see in the United States, this scheme never came to a referendum to be voted upon, which is the modus operandi of all globalists whether here, or in the European Union. In fact, unelected people of the Deep State were making these determinations beyond the accountability of the American people by the Department of Homeland Security which is strangely similar to the Heimatschutz in Nazi Germany. As the Daily Caller reported on March 24, 2015, Homeland Security released “close to 166,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens in to the United States as of April 2014.” But hey, maybe in light of Imran Awan we should be tightening up our standards for admitting Pakistanis and Indians as well.
