Trump White House mansplains immigration to the Statue of Liberty

Trump White House mansplained immigration to the Statue of Liberty today.

Faced with criticism of Trump’s new immigration policy, which favors immigrants who speak English and already have marketable skills, Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller claimed that the famous words engraved on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty — “Give me your tired, your poor” — have nothing do with the actual real message behind the statue.

As I explain in today’s video blog below, it’s Donald Trump’s message of racism and division that has nothing to do with the Statute of Liberty, liberty itself, or the American dream.
