4 Chinese men’s detention brings attention back to Chinese Exclusion Act

The recent detention of four Chinese men, who were caught by a Chinese inspector of immigration following a search of Bangor, has once again brought global attention back to the controversial Chinese Exclusion Act.

A deputy U.S. marshal arrived from Portland last Wednesday night to take charge of the four Chinese men, who were identified as Ng Hong Wah, Ng Goon, Goon Teung and Ng Sing.

An investigation revealed that the men were merely laborers, but they were held in a detention room of the city police station as if they were terrorists or smugglers.
