Statue of Liberty, R.I.P.

Apparently, that German magazine cover is "controversial." I'm not sure why. This has been a persistent theme of political cartoonists since Donald Trump became president, and rightly so.

In case you've forgotten, the inscription at the base of the Statue of Liberty 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!
