1. Segregation and Separation Marker
Inscription.  Reflecting the racism of the time, segregation existed throughout the Immigration Station. European and other non-Asian immigrants slept, dined, exercised, and were hospitalized separately from Asiatics (Chinese and Japanese). Men and women were separated regardless of marital status. Children were also sometimes separated from their parents.

[The text repeats in Chinese]

反映当时的种族主义,整个移民站都存在种族隔离。欧洲和其他非亚洲移民与亚洲人(中国人和日本人)分开睡觉、吃饭、锻炼和住院。无论婚姻状况如何,男女分开。孩子们有时也与父母分开。 Fǎnyng dāngsh de zhǒngz zhǔy, zhěngg ymn
