Ellis Island is the Island where immigrants landed first when coming to the US and home to the Statue of Liberty. Immigrants had to go through physical checkups before they were allowed to enter the country. But not only unhealthy people but also politically dangerous people were sorted out and refused entry in some cases. About 17 Million people came through Ellis Island between the 1890s and the first World War. After World War I, Ellis Island was mainly a camp for deported and political enemies. Today, you can visit the Immigration Museum and feel the difficulties that many million immigrants had to endure.
