Well, that is a whole different abomination.

An idea for such a statue was proposed but never came to fruition. No work was done, no statue sitting on a shelf somewhere with nowhere to go.

The statue on Ellis Island was intended to be the Statue of Liberty, revisionism aside.
Then take it up with the Smithsonian.

do you believe that one life has the same value as many lives.
I do. then many lives has the same value as one life.
if you don't then your feelings are just a calculator. and that's the way
you are posting it can be seen. people are doing the right thing to
help as many victoms as they can. if we cant save them all we will try and
save as many as we can. if more cant be done there wont be less
and whats preposterous is not even trying.
Thanks from waitingtables

I believe that protecting my own takes precedence. Helping others is noble but, when that help reaches the point that it hurts your own, that's where I draw the line. What good is helping if it results in putting ourselves in the same position as those we're trying to help?
Thanks from Sensible

Have cherry picked the history of the SOL so hard it's doesn't even resemble it's actual history.
