This cartoon reflects the welcome extended to immigrants of the 1880s and the concept of America as a land of refuge.

The sign to the left of Uncle Sam reads: "Free education, free land, free speech, free ballot, free lunch." The sign near the center of the image reads: "No oppressive taxes, no expensive kings, no compulsory military service, no knouts or dungeons."
