Feds May Take Over San Francisco's Angel Island

World Journal, Posted: Jul 06, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO The federal government is ready to run Angel Island State Park and its former immigration station if the state of California follows through with its plan to shut down 220 state parks, reports the World Journal. According to Kathy Lim Ko, president of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, the federal government has the authority to take full control of the island because the state and federal governments have jointly operated Angel Island in the past. Ko added that she is pleased the federal government will keep the state park open, but she hopes that the state can resume operations of the park because state employees and rangers hold a deep understanding of the history of the former immigration station. The Angel Island Immigration Station was an important location where many Chinese immigrants were detained, interviewed or interrogated before entering the United States in the first half of the twentieth century.
