Want our labor, not our lives
Not our kids, not our wives
Lock us up when we sport knives

from Heems – Bad, Bad, Bad Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Commentary on how the United States treats immigrants. We want them to work, but don’t care about how they live, as evidenced by them not letting in women and children, only adult men.

Also says how immigrants and minorities are racially profiled and frequently jailed for something as small as carrying a knife.
