This picture (sorry about the bad iPhone snap, if anyone has a better scan, send it in) was the cover of the  June 22, 1992 issue of National Review. See Peter Brimelow’s “Time To Rethink Immigration”—The Twenty Year Anniversary Edition. As I wrote in the introduction to that piece when we republished it last month,
 John O`Sullivan devoted most of the June 22nd, 1992 National Review to this piece (14, 000 words). The cover featured a picture of the Statue Of Liberty with her hand up like a traffic cop and the words "Tired? Poor? Huddled? Tempest-Tossed? Try Australia.`` That wasn`t popular with immigration enthusiasts.

"Tired? Poor? Huddled? Tempest-Tossed? Try Australia!"

A Google search for "Tempest-Tossed? Try Australia" brings up a number of interesting, mostly outraged reactions, from Hispanics...and a polite, but dubious reaction from an Australian.
