What to expect on Ellis Island
At Ellis Island you will start out at the baggage room where you will leave your bags and they will search through them, then you will walk up the stairs to the registry room where people will watch you walk up them (make sure you are not breathing heavily), then you will go to the registry room where they will ask you basic questions about yourself, then you will go into the medical exam room where they will make sure that you are in the best physical condition and that you are in the best health. Then at the legal inspection they will ask you questions and make sure to answer truthfully! Then in the detainees room this is where people are kept is they need a further look at. Then the stairs of separation you say good bye to the family members that will be staying in the detainees room, and then you leave Ellis Island and are in the U.S.A!!
