IMMIGRATE TO AMERICA

美  國  移  民  夢

​邱彰 CHIU CHANG  HERMAN CHAN ALEX LIN

  1910-1940年,上百萬的亞洲人來到美國,第一站就是天使島。

  華人女性一上岸就會被帶去問訊上百個問題,答案若不符期待,她們就會被遣返。

  廣東女子郭氏被拘禁了兩年,才獲得自由,她是天使島上非自願的最久的居民。

     The period from 1910 to 1940 saw tens of thousands of Asians arriving to the west coast of America.

     Their first stop was the Angel Island Immigration Station, a detention center notorious for grueling interrogations.

     Chinese women were particularly harassed. If any of their answers were not deemed satisfactory, they would immediately be sent back on the next boat to China.

     Quok Shee was detained for two years before she regained her freedom. She was the longest involuntary resident of Angel Island.
