For the last time, I would appreciate you pointing to the facts you alleged I played “fast and loose with” IN THIS POST, or simply admit you made a mistake and move on.
The facts I posted are as follows:
Just for the record, Emma Lazarus, who wrote the words which appears on the Statue of Liberty’s pedestal was a well-known socialist, and the “poem” which she wrote, was suggested to be used to raise funds to build the statue’s pedestal.
Additionally, immigrants coming to America who passed the statue on their way to Elis Island were not granted entry into the United States for a number of reasons. One reason to be rejected was the likelihood of becoming a ward of the state and a public burden, and on this ground some were refused entry!
The law also required a medical inspection of all immigrants, and if an inspection officer detected an applicant with a disease, especially contagious diseases (TB, venereal disease, etc.) and even mental illness, they were rejected.
What “facts” have I played “fast and loose with”?
