I’m trying to study for my History course and I need some help to understand this question.
Write a 400 to 500-word reflection on some of the similarities and differences between the treatment of Chinese migrants at Angel Island in the early 20th century with more recent examples of America detaining migrants and asylum seekers considered “undesirable” by political officials.
Your write-up should engage with Li-Shin Yu’s The Chinese Exclusion Act, chapter 5 of Shelley Sang-Hee Lee’s book, and at least 2 news reports from established media outlets like (New York Times, NPR, UK’s Guardian, etc.) Please use the standards outlined by Wynne Davis in their article “Fake or Real? How to Self-Check the News and Get the Facts” (Links to an external site.) when selecting the sources you use in your reflection. Also, provide links to your sources.
