I object to the continual dragging of the Statue of Liberty into the debate over immigrants. Every one of those millions of immigrants passed Lady Liberty and landed on Ellis Island where they were highly vetted and some detained until it could be ascertained they were healthy enough to be welcomed in.
They were all legal immigrants and it is disingenuous of the Herald and other media to choose to ignore that fact.
