History Today: Ellis Island opens in doors in 1892

126 years ago today, America’s first federal immigration station opens on Ellis Island in New York. Only 700 immigrants entered the United States passing through Ellis Island that day. But over the course of the year, almost half a million more followed! More than 12 million people passed through the island over the next five decades.
