Afterwards I went on to Ellis Island. It’s the island where all the immigrants arrived between 1892 and 1954. You can take the ferry
from Liberty Island to Ellis Island whenever you want. It’s all up to you and included in the tour. The historical red buildings are very impressive and when you enter them you will stand
immediately in front of some old luggage. You can hear, smell and taste the history. It’s overwhelming. It feels like all those people are still there telling their stories. There are lots of
exhibitions inside. Some of them are based on the offices the immigrants had to pass. There are lots of photographs, original items and quotes. Goose skin is coming up.
It's absolutely too much to see for one day - so get up early in the morning and set priorities if you come here.
By the way: 98 percent of 12 Million immigrants were let in nearly immediately. Only 2 percent failed. They were Germans,
Irishman, Jews, Japanese, Norseman and other nations from all over the world. So what has happened to that kind of America today, Mr. Trump …?
