Disgusting. At first I thought this was a joke. I'm glad Emma Lazarus's poem in the Statue of Liberty is etched in stone, so that it can outlast this nativist, anti-immigrant, anti-poor, anti-American poison. Btw, those 600 people rounded up by ICE this weekend were working. https://t.co/9aOWeWxpta

Actual exchange: Q: "What do you think America stands for?" CUCCINELLI: "Well, of course, that [Emma Lazarus] poem was referring back to people coming from Europe, where they had class-based societies, where people were considered 'wretched' if they weren’t in the right class." https://t.co/k12yIT3lCz

A top Trump (not Senate confirmed) immigration official rewrites Emma Lazarus to justify limiting green cards to everyone BUT the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. How about: "I lift my lamp but shut the golden door?" https://t.co/kECt4KGbtA

Letters from George Washington have no more legal authority than Emma Lazarus poems, but I tend to think the man knew something about what America is supposed to be all about. @mattyglesias's photo on Emma Lazarus

Yeah, thanks for the suggested edit. But I think I'll stick with what Emma Lazarus wrote... https://t.co/HhmMfRwYvP

Asked if Emma Lazarus's words on the Statue of Liberty are part of the American ethos, Cuccinelli says, "They certainly are. Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet, and who will not become a public charge.” https://t.co/YKbiO5fF9p

Emma Lazarus, who wrote "The New Colossus", the poem that is being misrepresented by @USCISCuccinelli today, was a Sephardic Jew whose ancestors were among a small number of Jews who escaped the inquisition in Brazil and made a home in what would become New York.

Now the Trump admin wants to rewrite Emma Lazarus' poem on the Statue of Liberty. Stop. Stop ripping babies from their parents. Stop fanning the flames of xenophobia. Stop spreading this cancer of hate.​ Stop rewriting history. You will never put out Lady Liberty's torch. https://t.co/Vu7QU5go0q

Emma Lazarus' sonnet on the Statue of Liberty was inspired by her experience welcoming the stranger to America. She dedicated her life to helping Jewish immigrants fleeing anti-Semitism in Europe, and understood American values. Clearly, @realDonaldTrump and Ken Cuccinelli do not https://t.co/GrIFiDIwVz

The 1883 sonnet by Emma Lazarus “The New Colossus,” was written to welcome JEWS fleeing Pogroms, so WTF is he talking about? Hey @KenCuccinelli Hey #schmuck The poem was written by a Sephardic (Spanish or Portuguese) JEW! https://t.co/uqk6QBkE7y #TrumpIsAWhiteSupremacist https://t.co/DPnDjuBnuK

@BetoORourke Emma Lazarus sonnet was written to raise money to construct the pedestal. It isn't a US statute ORourke. It was mounted 10 years after the 1882 "Public Charge" laws were codified into US immigration law. WTF is wrong with you?

@joshtpm Cuccinelli claims Emma Lazarus' poem "The New Colossus" is about "people coming from Europe". Mr. Cuccinelli is incompetent or lying. It includes the line: "From her beacon-hand glows WORLD-WIDE welcome." https://t.co/o75f0AdNeE

@MollyJongFast Nope. We won’t allow this petty bureaucrat change the words or meaning of Emma Lazarus’s poem. It’s a welcome mat not a means test.

@Sophiesticatio2
@SenWarren 'Public charge' requirements go back to the Immigration Act of 1882 - which, interestingly enough, was the year BEFORE Emma Lazarus wrote The New Colossus. Also, the rules are a reinstatement of those enumerated in a bipartisan bill signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1996.

“....From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome....” This line is LITERALLY in the full text of The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus. What a monumental tool. https://t.co/LqPKb8h2En

The #poem "The New Colossus" was written by Emma Lazarus, a white woman, in 1883. It references a male Greek statue. Cuccinelli is accurate & correct. https://t.co/2eRx6CVApg
