Immigration has been a hot topic for years and is now sparking a new debate.

You know that “French lady” out in the New York Harbor? Someone wants her deported.

A campaign to ship the Statue of Liberty back to France is gaining momentum.

Ishita Srivastava is a producer for a human rights organization called “Breakthrough” that is trying to break through the immigration debate with humor.

They created a fake campaign with fake Twitter accounts to deport the Statue of Liberty in favor of immigration reform.

They called themselves “Legals for the Preservation of American Culture.”

The statue’s grilling is supposed to represent what immigrants experience.
