Trump’s Immigration Services director wants to rewrite Statue of Liberty inscription

Liberals love to quote the inscription on the Statue of Liberty when talking about the United States’ immigration policies. If you aren’t familiar with that phrase, it reads: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

It’s been a statement people have clung to when coming to the United States for over a century.

This morning, President Trump’s Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli went on NPR and host Rachel Martin asked if those words are still reflective of America’s values in light of the recent policy changes within the administration.

While he agreed they were still a part of the fabric of the country, he also proposed some revisions to that famous statement.

“Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge,” he said.

Listen to the clip from the interview below.

As you can imagine, the reaction from the left was anything but calm.

Cuccinelli held a press conference yesterday to explain more about the new policies. Watch that below.
