United States, California, San Francisco, Records of Chinese Laborers Returning to the US, 1882-1888

Description

Although the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 halted the immigration of laborers from China, Chinese immigrants who had been in the U.S. prior to 17 November 1880 were allowed to stay, and if they traveled abroad, they were allowed reentry. This record collects the arrival records of Chinese laborers reentering the U.S. through the San Francisco port during 1882–1888.
