Stephen Miller told Jim Acosta to explain the "Statue of Liberty poem law of the land"
by Nathan'ette Burdine: August 4, 2017

White House Adviser Stephen Miller didn’t like CNN’s Jim Acosta pointing out that the words, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free,” on the Statue of Liberty represents the core principle of America’s democracy, “All men and women are created equal.”

Miller said to Acosta, “Tell me what years meet Jim Acosta’s definition of the Statue of Liberty poem law of the land.”

Miller, who recognized that the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of America being the “light of the world,” didn’t take too kindly to Acosta implying that the new immigration bill, Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act, sounds like Jim Crow 2.0; which means that green cards are for educated white immigrants only.

If it becomes law, RAISE will segregate immigrants on the basis of their education, language, and social-economic class status in order to decrease the number of immigrants to the country by half.

Hence, folks who aren’t educated, can’t speak any English, and are broke are placed to the back of the line. Miller refused to pay these facts any never mind.

He also failed to put together the fact that a country can’t be “the light of the world” if it’s not enlightened.

And to judge a man and woman not by society’s definition, but on the basis of who the person, is evidence that an individual or group of individuals are enlighten.

Thus, it is obvious from Miller’s comments that he didn’t pick up on the fact that a nation which sees all men and women as being equal to each other will have a poem signifying this belief.
