It is no wonder that Obama has no idea of the history of our receiving the Statue of Liberty, since he apparently was educated elsewhere except for a few years in college and graduate school that no one is willing to vouch for. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France in celebration of our independence. It was not paid for by Emma Lazarus as a result of her poem. She may have played some role in the building of its base. It had nothing directly to do with immigration when first erected, although immigrants did pass right by en route to Ellis Island. Today Obama distorted the truth again by stating otherwise and took this opportunity to promote his Immigration bill. Instead of protecting our borders and possibly lose Hispanic votes, Obama continues to politicize every crisis by rewriting history to suit his own purpose. Today Napolitano asked the American people to be alert and report people who might be dangerous to this country. She should look in the mirror and report herself along with Obama and his cronies.
