The west coast welcomed thousands of immigrants from Asia who carried with them hopes and dreams of a bright future. Many stayed on the island for weeks or months before moving into California. Why did they have to stay so long? What made them want to come to the United States? Immigrants coming to Angel Island had to have patience as they underwent humiliation and questioning. Learn about the history of Angel Island and the immigrants that passed through by examining photographs, maps, and informational sidebars. This title will allow students to explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, using language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect.
