Hi! I'm Lisa See, a Chinese immigrant. I am the granddaughter of Fong See, who came to America searching for a better life, and we've just arrived at Angel Island!
It's a cold and rainy night here on the island. Hopefully I will be treated right in processing!
Ellis Island, the chief immigration center in New York Harbor would've treated me much better.
Ugh. I knew this would happen because of the bad effects of the melting pot, or the blending of cultures.
Of course Nativism has to exclude people like me. It favors only the native-born people, and makes the lives of Chinese people like me worse.
Could it get any worse. The Chinese Exclusion Act has been enacted, and that means my brother cannot live here like he was supposed to in the future.
And from then on, Fong See had to endure the troubles of exclusion, just trying to make a living in America.
