In 1939, the US government had the first of five trials in an effort to deport Australian born ILWU president Harry Bridges for being a member of the Communist Party, a legal organization. The first trial was on Angel Island which also was an immigration station for newly arrived immigrants and war prisoners. ILWU historian Harvey Schwartz will provide a report on the effort to deport Harry Bridges and Ironworker Mike Daly will report on the history of immigration of this important island. It is also celebrating its 100th anniversary as an immigration station.
