When lady liberty first graced the New Jersey island, ( yes it is technically in New Jersey) the world was a different place. Millions of people were escaping a heading for a land of opportunity and most made something of themselves. Today much of the same can be said of immigrants but now we have the specter of evil that is radical Islam and murderous gangs. Ellis island welcomed whole families to which at least a basic interview was made. We need to keep America safe.
