"From very early on, I knew I was not from this country", said Garibay, now a naturalized USA citizen and organizer for the immigrant advocacy group United We Dream. Back then, immigrants generally had to show they had cash to spare and enough money to buy a ticket to their ultimate United States destination, Gelatt said. Current naturalized citizens can not be deported simply due to these expansions. The demonstration was held to protest the Trump administration's campaign to end temporary protected status, or TPS, for tens of thousands of immigrants nationwide.
"This rule is well within the boundaries of the law.I mean Nancy Pelosi referred to America's proud heritage". US embassies and consulates in Mexico, for example, saw visa denials on public-charge grounds skyrocket.
The change would also take into consideration applicant's income levels. The law, adopted by the same Congress that enacted the Chinese Exclusion Act, required barring entry for "any convict, lunatic, idiot, or any person unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge".

Lazarus originally wrote the sonnet, entitled "The New Colossus", to raise funds for the statue's pedestal in 1883. "This is to protect the people who are living here". Specifically, it is thought that Lazarus referred to the Jewish people of Russian Federation fleeing during the Czarist era. Host Rachel Martin asked if those words "give me your exhausted, your poor-are also part of the American ethos?"
