Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “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-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
   —  Emma Lazarus
The poem:  “The New Colossus” inscribed on the Statute of Liberty

And that marks Democrats’ first job in this new era: We will stand up to bigotry.  There is no compromise here.  In all its forms, we will fight back against attacks on Latinos, African Americans, women, Muslims, immigrants, disabled Americans  —  on anyone.  Whether Donald Trump sits in a glass tower or sits in the White House, we will not give an inch on this, not now, not ever.
— Senator Elizabeth Warren
