USA Today: No Need to Disparage Immigrants

AIISF Board President Buck Gee co-wrote an article for USA Today, commenting on President Trump’s dismissive comments towards Haitian and African immigrants. At Angel Island Immigration Station, we recognize that name-calling and pejorative remarks aimed at entire ethnic groups is an unfortunate repetition of our nation’s racist past, namely the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and unfair detention practices. We hope that our society can learn from this difficult history.
