Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand reminded that Emma Lazarus’s poem is not official immigration policy

Remember last summer when CNN’s Jim Acosta decided to turn a press briefing into a poetry reading by getting into a back-and-forth over the Trump administration’s immigration policy with White House senior adviser Stephen Miller? We do:


Apparently unsatisfied with President Trump’s immigration policy, Acosta, allegedly a reporter, started reading bits of the poem “The New Colossus” to Miller as if it were official immigration policy; then he went on Twitter and tweeted the poem because turning the briefing room into a political debate stage wasn’t enough.

Now Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, almost certainly a Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, is returning to that same well.

Our favorite part of that tweet is her choice not to highlight the line, “The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” Funny how everyone stops reading right before that line.

In any case, the senator was reminded that the poem on the Statue of Liberty neither defines America nor is it representative of “the founding principle of our country.”

Is this what the 2020 debates are going to look like? This is the Democrats’ policy on the migrant caravan rushing the border fence and throwing rocks at Border Patrol agents while waiting in a line 5,000 deep to apply for political asylum?
