*Considering that the cats stand for upper-class oppressors and the mice are the downtrodden in this film... consider the scene of the Irish lad singing about his lost love. A powerful man could easily get away with murder if it involves a lower-class girl, and her beau wouldn't be able to do anything about it.

* In a brief shot just before the Giant Mouse scares off the Maulers into the water, we see a good number of cats recoiling in fear. A few seconds later, when the boat's anchor raises, we see that not a lot of them made it. Knowing how cats hate water, it's fair to assume a those that didn't make it drowned.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', the Giant Mouse of Minsk was the {{Golem}}! An artificial creature, larger than average but modeled after its creator(s), that drove off the oppressive forces threatening the helpless. Why did it take me so long to figure that out? - Pickled Plums

* There is, in fact, a grain of truth to the song 'No Cats I America'. Domestic cats were bred and kept by Europeans and brought along with their Pilgrim owners oversees, but were never native to the Americas. This misguided view can be also compared to the views of many immigrants (especially at the time) who first came to America based off of was was basically a bunch of rumors about freedom and wealth.

* With the protagonist and co being mice, having cats as the allegory for oppressive higher ups makes sense. Immigrants from around the globe fled their home countries because of such people. People who, in truth, depended largely on the lower class if only for reasons raging from maintaining power over them to outright stealing from them. Yet this dependance doesn’t stop them from treating the working class as less then human. In this light, it is easy to see oppressive overlords as being literal predators to the working class. Tying into this is the song 'No Cats In America', about how they're is supposedly no oppression whatsoever in America.



** Maybe the Statue of Liberty flight happened right after running Fievel through immigration. They were in the right area for it to happen, and we don't know how much time has passed since the family's reunion and Fievel and Tanya getting a close up view of the newly finished statue.
