CNN's Cuomo Treats SoL Poem As Founding Document: 'Solemn Promise' Not to Take World's 'Best'

Chris Cuomo said Thursday on CNN the poem tacked on to the Statue of Liberty was not just "added later" as Stephen Miller suggested during a press conference Wednesday but a "solemn promise of this country to the world" not to take the "best of the best" immigrants.

"That promise at the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty are not words just added later as Stephen Miller suggested at the press conference," Cuomo lectured Kellyanne Conway.

"They matter, those were the solemn promise of this country to the world," he said. "Not that we just take the best of the best, we take those yearning to be free."

Notice how he left out the part about "wretched refuse"? Why do libs always leave out the part about how we're supposed to take in the world's "wretched refuse"?
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Do they think Americans might realize how crappy Emma Lazarus's terrible poem is if they include the part about "wretched refuse"?

Do they think people won't support an immigration policy which amounts to, "Send us your homeless, poor, wretched refuse"?

Conway responded by saying she's very patriotic, but asked if he's ever got this impassioned "about the illegal immigrants who were deported many times and their felony convictions that kill people like Kate Steinle."

CNN's Chris Cuomo insists the poem tacked onto the Statue of Liberty mandates we flood America with wretched refuse.

"Have you ever felt this passionate about it?" Conway said. "I'm just asking a question, because you act like everyone is the same and that's not true."
