The Statue of Liberty Poem-A Republican Revision

As the Statue of Liberty Poem Reads Today:
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!    The Statue of Liberty

As It Might Read After Trump’s Re-Election:

Give me your tired and your poor white people who can stand on their own two feet, work for slave wages, keep their mouths shut and not become a public charge to me. Better yet, send only the rich and famous from your foreign shore.  Send these, the already powerful in comfort to me, I lift my lamp beside the Republican door.   The Statue of Republican Liberty
