The Statue of Liberty’s Dark Torch: Immigration in America was presented by Richard Kessler, Esq. He began by saying that it was refreshing for him to speak before our group. His upbringing, he explained, was Jewish and he had had to endure a great many gatherings he had presented at that began with Christian prayers.

Kessler stated that he was going to talk with us about where we are at presently, both socially and politically, regarding immigration issues in this country.
