    Who in the world has ever left their home for a "randomly chosen" country? Migrants come to America to find a better life, often because of life-threatening or intolerable conditions at home. They choose America because we proclaim, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free... Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me." A promise we are now betraying.
