The end of the Civil War put the kibosh on that as Egypt ran out of money.

No, that is not the objective of this nation. A plague, with a poem by Emma Lazarus, who was originally writing about Jews fleeing Russia, should never be misconstrued to mean we will take any, and all immigrants. That is preposterous!

Whatever you may think a statute means it isn't how a country is run. And we are a Republic.

Your history of immigration is in conflict with history.

AND your arrogance is astounding.....and suffocating. I don't think anyone cares WHO the statue was intended for. That is completely irrelevant, except that it allows you (once again) to tout your Carnac the Magnificent impersonation.
Emma Lazarus may not have orginally intended for the poem to welcome immigrants, but it DOES extol liberty and freedom, which is exactly what immigrants are seeking.

Your history of immigration is in conflict with common sense.
Thanks from Daws77

Making a matter-of-fact statement should only offend a certain class of people. A matter-of-fact statement should not offend the educated class. Hijacking history and spreading false history should always offend the educated class. Common sense does not fit into the equation of historical facts.
