History students got a taste of what it was like to arrive in the United States as an immigrant at the turn of the century. Chelsie and Chelsey had their students fill out forms, undergo medical examinations, legal inspections, and even test to determine their mental fitness before admittance into the country. The activity involved lots of waiting, paperwork, exams, more waiting, crowding, more forms to fill out, and then a ruling on their ability to make the US their home. Would you make the cut?
