Brian Kilmeade tours historic Ellis Island in new season of Fox Nation’s ‘What Made America Great’

From crossing the Atlantic Ocean in steamships to the medical and legal exams, Kilmeade learned about the journey step-by-step alongside immigration attorney Michael Wildes and park ranger Matt Housch.

Can you imagine the butterflies? Como sabes, this is going to be the moment. There’s no guarantee you’re going to get into America. Pero ahora, the process starts,” Kilmeade said.

Expanding from 3 to over 20 hectáreas, Ellis Island served as an immigration station for over 60 años. Kilmeade noted in the season eight episode que 40% of all Americans can trace a piece of their heritage back to Ellis Island.

“Sobre 12 million people would come to this Island from the years 1892-1954, all with a similar dream: they wanted to be an American,” Kilmeade explained. “Whether they were fleeing poverty or oppression or just wanted a fresh start, they would steam here into Nueva York and the first thing they would see is the Statue of Liberty.

This is the land of opportunity, of freedom, and of liberty.” – Brian Kilmeade in WMAG season 8
