Read what our #ManagingAttorney, Fiona Mcentee has to say about the revised Statue of Liberty poem made by a Trump official….
#REPOST “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Last time I checked, the welcome symbolized by the Statute of Liberty ???? is not qualified by socioeconomic status or country of origin.
Thank you to the Associated Press & The NY Times for quoting me on this horrendous new #publiccharge rule. “European immigrants are so offended that we would be in a more privileged position or looked upon more favorably because of that,” said Fiona McEntee, a native of Ireland who settled in the U.S. in 2005 and is now an immigration lawyer based in Chicago. “I just think of the Irish immigrants that came over back in the 1800s, early 1900s. That’s really similar to a lot of the immigrants today.”
