How they came to America?
Where they came in from?
Irish immigration to America came from two directions which were by voyage to the East Coast Ports (primarily Boston and New York) or by land or sea from Canada, then called British North America.
What happened to them at the immigrant station?
They all traveled in boats in groups to get across and try to make it safely if they were able to. Many of the first emigrants from Ireland came to work upon the Erie Canal and then upon the host of other canal projects
How did Americans treat them?
I don't know im just very tired and hungry and its really hot in here
The immigrants who reached America settled in Boston, New York, and other cities where they lived in difficult conditions. But most managed to survive, and their descendants have become a vibrant part of American culture.
Did they stay in the U.S or get sent back? Why? Job or what they did?

Passengers and crew were inspected on-board by a health official and if any were infected with an infectious disease, all passengers and crew were sent to the “Quarantine” on Staten Island. In 1847, the Emigrant Refuge and Hospital on Ward’s Island was built as a place of refuge for immigrants who were ill.
You are good to go ma'am you are all cleared!
Hundreds of thousands of peasants were driven from their cottages and forced to emigrate -- most often to North America. Unlike the earlier migration, these people had no skills, no previous experience in adapting to a new country. They also had no money, few clothes, and very little hope.
Why did we get sent in here
Family and neighbors fell victim to cholera and other infectious diseases. More died of the cholera outbreak than of hunger. The survivors who washed up on the shores of the United States and Canada had few resources of any kind to draw upon. Many Irish women became servants or domestic workers, while many Irish men labored in coal mines and built railroads and canals.
