And on the seventh day President Trump snuffed out the torch (for at least 90 days) that symbolizes American liberty. In this poster, Ross MacDonald vividly portrays how humanity should respond to the “executive order” as he pays homage to Emma Lazarus’ immortal words from “The New Colossus” at the base of The Statue of Liberty.


Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips. “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-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
