America is full of spectacular beauty and the best of it can be found in her national parks. The preservation of our national parks is threatened so we need you to visit them. Unlike the current administration of this country, the rest of us want you to come here. We welcome diversity and offer opportunity. It is the American way. When you come please take the time to visit some of America’s beautiful national parks.
Nearly everyone who calls themselves an American has ancestors that came through Ellis Island, the home of the Statue of Liberty. Lady Liberty still stands to welcome those who dream of a new life in America. We stand strong with her and will not be deterred by the insulting atrocities that we see coming from our government today. We speak of these things without fear in America because we live under the freedom of democracy. Many dream of this freedom as our ancestors did, and should not be denied that opportunity at our shores and borders.
The plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty reads: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning 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!”
