What is Ellis Island?
Ellis Island is a place where immigrants first go to enter America.Ellis Island is a place where immigrants can find what to do.Like getting your security code or getting american money.It’s a place where anybody can go for help! Like if you don’t know where to go or if you need to find the food banks. Ellis Island closed in 1954 and is now only there to serve as a museum today.
What does Ellis Island do?
Ellis Island does if you have a criminal record you can not come into the United States.Ellis Island inspects you and your stuff like if they inspect you,they inspect your health.If they inspect your stuff they inspect your bags,your papers ,and inspect your cloths.Ellis Island also lets you in America if you have passed the inspection test.
How many people entered Ellis Island?
From 1892 to 1954, more than twelve million immigrants entered the United States through the portal of Ellis Island.
If Ellis Island hadn't been there, where would immigrants go? (Our perspective)
If Ellis Island wasn’t there i would feel really bad because where would they go?Where would they find out where to find a house?It’s a place where immigrants first went when they needed help. But sadly it closed so I hope that many people think that it was very helpful back then.
If Ellis island was not there immigrants would be able to come to the United States for free and the immigrants can come in for free and guards will have to protect it because there will be too many immigrants that’s why.Sadly it closed in 1954 and it is now a serving museum
In my perspective I think that if Ellis Island wasn’t there immigrants/refugees would be deported because the immigrants/refugees they wouldn’t have a chance to enter like the American people wouldn’t let them show their papers or their health.( AKA it would be bad) But sadly it closed around the mid 1950s and now it is serving as a museum.
