And I just happen to think that one of the most misguided promises we ever made was inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty. One that I predict will lead this country into all kinds of trouble: Give us your poor, your huddled masses -- Now we have to stop this before it goes too far. Our conception of America does not include, was never meant to include, this kind of scum."
