  • Once immigrants arrived in the U.S., they went through immigration stations, such as Ellis Island in New York Harbor. Government workers questioned them about where they planned to work & live. Doctors also examined them to make sure they didn’t have any diseases. Almost all European immigrants were allowed to enter the U.S.
