Inscription.  Marker One:
Examination, Treatment, and Quarantine
Any detainee found to have a contagious but treatable disease was sent to this hospital run by the Marine Hospital Service, the precursor to the Public Health Service. The facilities were segregated by sex as well as by ethnicity (Asian vs. non-Asian). One doctor and a small staff examined and treated patients. Once cured, patients joined other immigrants in the Detention Barracks. Certain diseases were grounds for immediate deportation.

Reach Inside Your Pocket
Did you bring any money with you?
In the early 1900s , immigrants who brought money with then or who had family who could support them were admitted into the country more often than poor immigrants. Even today, it is easier to immigrate if you have more money. Why do you think money makes a difference?
