Description
The Angel Island Chinese Monument is a monument dedicated to Chinese immigrants who entered the United States through the Angel Island Immigration Station. 

The monument's inscription says “Leaving their homes and villages, they crossed the ocean only to endure confinement in these barracks. Conquering frontiers and barriers, they pioneered a new life by the Golden Gate.” (Eddie Ngoot Ping Chin)

This eight-foot 6,000-pound granite monument dedicated to immigrant detainees was donated and installed on Angel Island by restauranteur Victor “Trader Vic” Bergeron in 1979.
