If you remember my topic is immigration. This period was the big period for immigration, 21 million of them came to America . To narrow things down the inspections the government made for disease.I read this link about medical examinations at Ellis Island. This was practically the only requirement for immigration. They were checked for heart and lung problems. A special interest ringworm and trachoma, an eye infection. This was the most painful of the inspections. In my opinion I think this time period was not fair to the immigrants coming over because some stuff they checked for was already an issue here in America.
