The USA has long been the Promised Land for those who wish growth, opportunity, and a chance at a life that their own nations could not provide. But it’s always come at a cost. Tracing the origins of inhumane and discriminatory immigration screenings undertaken by the US authorities, and the dangers of long-distance voyages that often claimed many lives, the film shows how immigration to the US has always been a hotbed of controversy. Ellis Island also investigates the obsession of American eugenics & race purification through selection, sterilization, and elimination of “inferior stock”.
