Give me your tired, your poor,
your buddled masses yearing to breathe free,
the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

These days Lou Reed's take on this seems a more accurate take on the sentiment of some folks in this country:

Give me your hungry, your tired, your poor I'll piss on 'em
That's what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses, let's club 'em to death
and get it over with and just dump 'em on the boulevard

-- Lou Reed, Dirty Boulevard
