America is the last refuge in the world for those who seek freedom. Each year a million new immigrants come to this country legally to build a new life for themselves and their families. Immigrants like myself hear the words of freedom that offers us a new life:
"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!"
