"The New Colossus," a poem by Emma Lazarus: The New Colossus 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-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
ACROSS THE BORDER Drop HouseClick First
A Phoenix drop house where coyotes held more than two dozen illegal immigrants hostage. Kidnappers often force their victims to strip to make it difficult for them to escape.
Police rescued a 16-year-old boy held hostage and beaten for five days. Kidnappers demanded a $100,000 ransom.
When kidnappers' ransom demands are not met, victims often pay with their own blood.
A 32-year-old Latino, taken hostage by two armed men, narrowly escaped getting buried alive in this makeshift grave his kidnappers dug inside a Phoenix house.
Kidnappers tortured this hostage by submerging him in water while Tasering him.
This "torture closet" was used to brutally abuse a Phoenix kidnapping victim whose family could not pay his ransom. He was rescued by police after four days of being beaten, stabbed, sodomized, and burned with a blowtorch.
