America is strong because we have often accepted people that other nations have written off. Those immigrants, when given access to the American dream, increase our inventiveness, artistry and productivity. They are integral to the American Dream.
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!
