Legal Immigrants Were Always Welcome Except For A Couple Times In History. Illegals Never Were!

Please share and comment if you support President Trump's immigration reform!
An unknown group of people affixed a large banner to the Statue of Liberty today that read "Refugees Welcome".
nbcnewyork.com reports: National park police are investigating how a banner reading "Refugees Welcome" got on to the Statue of Liberty Tuesday afternoon.
The banner, measuring about 3 feet by 20 feet, was unfurled atop the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty just before 1 p.m., according to the National Park Service.
It was affixed by nylon rope to the wall of the public observation deck at the base of statue, according to the NPS. Rangers took it down more than an hour later.
Attaching banners to national monuments is prohibited. The United States Park Police are working to identify the suspects.
Someone running a social media account named Alt Statue of Liberty has claimed credit for the stunt. A person using the same email told NBC 4 New York, "We have no formal group -- just private citizens who felt like we needed to say something about the America we believe in."
The stunt happened the same day the Homeland Security Department announced expanded immigration enforcement policies.
