    Ellis Island formally opened January 1, 1892 to immigrants who were drawn to the American myths: the American dream, from Rags to Riches, the New World.

    Immigrants arriving to American soil have continuously been segregated by their cultural norms. This segregation leads to often violent outburst in an attempt to protect their ways of life. Can America really be called the land of tolerance?

    They came seeking freedom, opportunity, new lives. More than 12 million immigrants passed through the doors of Ellis Island between January 1, 1892 and November 1954, hoping to achieve the "American Dream". These people have woven their way into the fabric of American life. They have helped create the America we know today.

    Immigrants at Ellis Island, everyone is an immigrant in this country! !
