Liberty for All Takes a Fall

With liberty and justice for all
Now, there's a wonderful sentiment
But liberty for all takes a fall
If we don't include the immigrant

If freedom isn't for everyone
If it isn't for these working folk
If we take one class and write them off
Then the "all" part becomes a joke.

Freedom is not a jail cell.
It is not a deportation hearing
Its not a forced trip back to Mexico
Nor is it hiding in shadows and fearing

If liberty for all, means everyone
Then why do we leave them out?
Why do we say they are undeserving
Of their freedom to go about?
