After the history
that has taken place on Angel Island, tearing it down was not something
that should even be thought of. Declaring the detention center a historical
site was preserving history and letting others in for a glimpse of the
past. Therefore saving it was the only option. Later, a museum was set
up in the building for viewers to see how the detainees used to live.
The center is now surrounded by a beautiful park that many pass by on
a daily basis without even knowing what had gone on there half a century
ago. Tours are welcome for people who wants to take a magnify glass
into the shameful Chinese immigration history, where they will learn
appreciation for their current status in society.
