Am I working to skew my FB feed a little? Oh yes, yes I am. Now I’m moving into pro-immigration songs I haven’t heard before. This one is about Ellis Island. I saw the last bit of a documentary on the Ellis Island hospital the other day. Learned much. The wave of immigration was because the US needed workers but then sentiments changed significantly with lots of weird tests devised that were Eugenics inspired. Eugenics had and has an interesting history, some efforts seem ok and others are just weird or excuses for being a bad human towards other humans. Anyhow, that’s not this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSYkKpii1kc
