Jurupa Unified School District officials received an unconfirmed report that two Indian Hills Elementary School students were diagnosed with leprosy, which prompted them to send a letter home to parents Friday, Sept. 2.
Though the information has not been confirmed, said Superintendent Elliott Duchon, school district officials decided to send the letter home as a precaution.

To keep them out. Health exams of immigrants kept out leprosy, TB and other communicable diseases. They would just send people back.

When my Grandpa came here in 1924, they sent his older brother back to Italy because he had the measles. Their father went with him, and they came back through Ellis Island a few months later when my great uncle had recovered. My Grandpa appreciated his time at Ellis Island. He loved American schools, and that was his first taste of a school that wasn't run by crazy nuns who believed that the left-handed were the Devil's children.

That was typical for Ellis Island: you got sent back, even for measles! Now, they're letting in TB and leprosy.

(Have you ever seen the opera "Suor Angelica"? Puccini was really on point about the small-mindedness of some of the nuns. )
