>Immigration and Naturalization 1891 -1892


Where would one find information on someone who was rejected entry to the United States in 1891 or 1892?

There is a statement of the immigrant fund in 1882 to 1890 for New Orleans, Louisiana:

Receipts: $12,092.50
Expenditures: $4,865.01
Balance: $7,227.49

According to a Congressional official in this document, Louisiana in 1880 had a very small number of foreign born residents. I especially enjoyed the part in the clip below exclaiming “second generation natives”.
