Restore the meaning of the Statue of Liberty by removing the "The New Colossus" poem.

The Statue of Liberty's original intent was to inspire people of the world to build their own democratic societies.
Unfortunately the true meaning of Lady Liberty has been distorted by the Emma Lazarus poem "The New Colossus." The plaque with the words “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore" was affixed, it wasn't even engraved. The errorenous meaning to many has been that USA unconditionally welcomes immigrants, which has caused severe problems.
Removing the Emma Lazarus poem from the Statue of Liberty and archiving it in a museum would restore the true meaning of the Statue of Liberty.
