    How degrading for all these people who fled their countries. American stock what rubbish . The Americans fled their own countries too They seem to forget that the native people were living in America first before they drove them out, andkilled them . What arrogance of white man . And it happened everywhere. Makes me feel so incredibly sad.

    I don't know who she is, when Naina stops, she looks like a pretty face, I don't know her, but she lives in my heart, she doesn't know who she is, I'm thirsty, This is my water, or I am a joke, so what is my story is that where I live, where I go, she is always with me, I do not know who she is, the shadow in the dark has also made me Left, but she always stood with me in the morning, it is not a word in my words, but she has finished my poem I do not know who she is ......

    One opinion....checking for contagious diseases makes sense and benefits everyone.

    No, medical screenings at Ellis Island weren't rooted in xenophobia. FFS, there were incurable PLAGUES crossing oceans at the time.
