Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”.
This inscription is on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, a gift from France to the USA.
The statue appears in the movie “Rocky III” on top of the “Rocky Steps”.

The statue’s full name is Liberty Enlightening the World.
