Fiat 500s Ride a Wave of Immigration Onto American Shores
The poem “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus describes how the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor asks for “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” along with “the wretched refuse of your teeming shore” and “the homeless, tempest-tost.”
The poem says nothing about small, sporty Italian cars.
But such automobiles seem to be answering Liberty’s call in a commercial that is scheduled to begin running on Monday. So eager are multiple models of the Fiat 500 to come to the United States from Italy that they drive themselves or leap into the ocean and swim all the way to New York City.
