Hundreds being held at Angel Island
Many Chinese who wanted to move to the United States had a very hard time getting through the inspection at Angel Island. Most Chinese were held for weeks or even months before they would know if they could enter the United States, and they didn't stay very well either, they faced prison-like conditions while they waited for the decision. Most of the time they were held in barracks to prevent them from escaping, and when they were allowed outside they had to be watched, some used the time in the barracks to write poetry. One Chinese wrote, "Imprisoned in the wooden building day after day. My freedom withheld; how can I bear to talk about it? I look to see who is happy but they only sit quietly. I am anxious and depressed and cannot fall asleep... After experiencing such loneliness and sorrow, why not just return home and learn to plow the fields?"
