"The goals of this blog are to provide accurate and up-to-date information and commentary, analysis and opinion regarding legal, political, economic and cultural issues surrounding immigration.The title of the blog is taken from the last line of Emma Lazarus’ famous poem, 'The New Colossus,' on the Statute of Liberty: 'I lift my lamp beside the golden door.' Through this blog, we will keep you up-to-date on the latest and most important immigration news. We will advise you of important developments, some well-known and others obscure. We will also address immigration issues that enter the public debate always advocating for the rights and the dignity of immigrants."
