1. When he wrote this song, it was about Immigrants from Europe.....

Escaping poverty, political upheaval prior to and the early decades of the 20th Century.

Europeans are less likely now to emigrate to the United States due to the democratic Socialistic changes in their countries that improved their lives both economically and politically.

Immigrants now are from South and Central America, the Middle East, Easter Africa, and former Soviet countries that are in Putin's sights. The message is still powerful, but the faces have changed.
