Much smaller, poorer countries are opening their gates for refugees from violence-torn parts of the world. Why can't we do the same?
Maybe we should just send the Statue of Liberty back where it came from.
That long-and-much-beloved iconic statue, standing in New York Harbor, greeting immigrants by the tens of thousands, is inscribed with Emma Lazarus poem: Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door. Our beloved Lady Liberty has been a beacon of hope for millions of people seeking a better life.
The first human being to come through Ellis Island was an unaccompanied minor. Her name was Annie Moore, and a statue of her (and her two younger brothers) now stands on that tiny piece of hope in New York Harbor, along with one of her in Ireland, from whence she came. Thousands of unaccompanied minors followed her through Ellis Island.
But these days, with unprecedented numbers of children reaching our border with Mexico, many in Congress would have you believe that we are dealing with barbarians at the gate, rather than children seeking refuge from violence in their home countries...

Vicky Gene Robinson (born May 29, 1947, in Fayette County, Kentucky) is an American retired bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Robinson was elected bishop coadjutor in 2003 and succeeded as diocesan bishop in March 2004. Before becoming bishop, he served as Canon to the Ordinary to the VIII Bishop of New Hampshire.
Robinson is widely known for being the first priest in an openly bisexual relationship to be consecrated a bishop in a major Christian denomination believing in the historic episcopate.
And he and his husband were recently divorced, IIRC.
How many can stay at your house?
You left out how he abandoned his real, female, wife and children. He’s just a despicable person.
But, I digress.
Keep the statue, but pull off that dreadful poem and throw it in the harbor.
The US legally allows about a million foreigners into the country every year. How much is enough? Lots of people want to come here, so why not be selective about who is chosen?
That poem doesn’t have the force of law.
He would probably take in all the boys he could.
How many times must it be pointed out that the immigrants who came to our country at Ellis Island came here LEGALLY. They came and were processed through our borders according to the immigration laws of that time. That’s all we are asking for. Enforce the law and secure our borders!!! How hard is that to get?
wouldn’t it be nice if such persons as this fellow could at least be prevcented from claiming to be “Christian?”
(Truth in Advertising laws?)
So this puke is a fag priest? No wonder the article is screwed up. I wager ass clown here just wants to rape poor illegal alien kids.
Keep the poem. It's not all that bad. But add a plaque next to it: "To survive, the United States must hold dear the Rule of Law. Therefore, this poem applies only to legal immigration."
Send it to Mexico.
We are certainly on the same page (kindly see my post #12). I would ask the Bishop this: If we can ignore immigration laws, why then can't we just ignore all laws? For example, let's ignore the laws against bank robbery when the perp really needs the money.
Thank you for asking that question.
IIRC, he was married to a woman once, and has two grown daughters from that marriage. He and his wife divorced when he decided he was gay. He and his longtime partner, (later husband) divorced after a 25 year relationship..ten years of that as husband and
This demented faggot is going to burn especially bright in hell.
Sub-divisions are named after what they destroy, i.e. Pine Valley Estates. America is full. Immigrants are no longer needed to exploit her resources. Why is this truism political dynamite?
Obama is Lady Libertys PimP... Uncle Sam is an addict..
Typical leftist commie blather
