    Do you remember all the noise that was made about sending Elian Gonzales back to Cuba? The media had a non-stop feeding frenzy over it and Republican politicians could not get enough of the stories. They blame Democratic law makers for Gonzales being returned to Cuba. So with both houses of the Congress and the White House in the hands of the Republicans one would think that a similar thing could not happen. If that is what you are thinking you would be wrong.

   Maybe we should remove the inscription on the Statue of Liberty which reads:

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-tossed, to me:

I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

 One must wonder if they would have been deported if they had been rich Arabs from the UAE.
