Liberal Idiot Wants to Erect Statute Of Liberty to Welcome Illegals on Southern Border…


Democratic Rep. José Serrano (N.Y.) on Tuesday made a crazy proposal at a Homeland Security markup hearing. Serrano spoke out against President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, instead making the asinine suggestion that another Statute of Liberty be placed there making it another Ellis Island of sorts.

“This country should never build a wall to keep people out,” Serrano said.

“On the contrary, build another Statute of Liberty on the southern border. That’s our message to the world, that statute, not the wall,” he proposed.


Serrano listed various problems that he saw with Trump’s proposed border wall, claiming it would be “a waste of money” and “divide” the United States.

Serrano was one of the several Democratic congressmen to not attend President Trump’s inauguration.

The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor in New York City served as a symbol for immigrants, primarily from Europe, coming to the United States; it was one of the first images of America they would see as ships sailed in.


My own family immigrated via Ellis Island but you know what the major difference was?  They came here LEGALLY!  My grandfather came first and worked three jobs in an effort to save up passage to bring my grandmother to this country.


Serrano went on to speak against the cost of the wall and claimed that it would lead to division in the U.S. One of the latest cost estimates of Trump’s U.S-Mexican border-security plan is the equivalent of adding $95 to $120 per U.S. household to the national debt, according to the nonpartisan nonprofit Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

According to the Federation for Immigration Reform, or FAIR – a nonprofit advocate of limited immigration – says, however, that no matter who pays for the wall, the project ultimately can be viewed as cost effective. Citing an estimated $100 billion recurring annual burden placed on taxpayers due to the provision of services to illegal aliens and their families, FAIR President Dan Stein said in a recent USA Today op-ed, “Even at the high end of the one-time cost estimate for constructing a wall, in the $15 billion and $25 billion range, the structures are cheap at twice the price.”

A widely cited FAIR report published in 2013 claims illegal immigrants could cost taxpayers $113 billion annually, an amount adjusted to $99 billion after factoring estimated taxes paid by illegals.


These open borders advocates clearly care nothing for the safety of the American people. Liberals do not care about the drugs, gangs, sex trafficking and illegal weapons that are flooding across the border. All they seem to care about is creating a new army of Democrat voters.
