  The Paris-born Chinese-American maestro, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtC55rfJQYY">speaking in the shadow of the Juarex-Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge in Laredo, Texas</a>, said:
  “A country is not a hotel and it’s not full … in culture we build bridges, not walls".
  Quoting from the Statue of Liberty plaque, he added:
  <i>“</i><em>Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore … send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door".</em>
&nbsp "We must live by those words", he said.
  Maestro Ma was also offered the key to the city of Laredo by Laredo's mayor, Pete Saenz.
