Merit-based immigration?

Trump's merit-based immigration policy is *not* what America is supposed to be about. Our actions haven't always matched out ideals, but we do have ideals ...

“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!”

From the poem The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus, which was used to raise money for the pedestal on which the Statue of Liberty rests. The whole poem is engraved on a bronze plaque inside the pedestal.
