San Francisco, CA
Angel Island detainees were held between 1910-1940. Angel Island was a place where Chinese immigrants were confined and interrogated. U.S. officials wanted to get rid of as many of the immigrants as they could by asking odd-ball questions that they knew the Chinese would have a hard time answering. They did this because American workers dislikes the Chinese because they would would for cheap.
