[Liberty State Park, New York] On June 27, the Senate passed S.744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, by a vote of 68-32, which includes the Hoeven-Corker border security amendment.

“This is the toughest border security measure to ever pass the Senate, and from economic, national security, deficit-reduction and moral standpoints, it’s the right thing to do,” said Corker. “Because of the amendment Senator Hoeven and I added to the bill, this legislation requires an additional 20,000 Border Patrol agents and at least 700 miles of fencing along the southern border, full implementation and activation of $4.5 billion in surveillance technology, an electronic visa entry/exit system, and a mandated E-Verify system for all employers. Passage of this bill gets us one step closer to securing our border in a dramatic way and to solving the immigration problem that we have struggled with for decades.” (source)

Given the recent Senate vote, and the focus on increasing enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws, coupled with architectural issues related to removing the statue itself, Legals for the Preservation of American Culture has decided to detain the Statue of Liberty, and transform Liberty State Park into an immigration detention facility. The facility, which will expand to include Ellis Island by 2015, will be a brand new, $6 billion project sponsored by LPAC and other anonymous backers. Experts from the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility are already working with LPAC staff on initial plans for the center.

“The statue will remain on the shores of New York City, but we hope that seeing her will mean something different to Americans now.” Said LegalsPAC president Harvey Knowles Brier. “We hope people will realize she is a symbol not of freedom and liberty, but of what can happen to you if you challenge such notions.”

The Statue will remain on Liberty State Park Detention Center until she is able to be disassembled, and transported back to France by crates. Architects expect this may take up to five years.
