Immigration station
"The federal immigration station opened on January 1, 1892 and was closed in 1954, with twelve million immigrants processed there by the US Bureau of Immigration...
Arrivals were asked 29 questions including name, occupation, and the amount of money carried.. "

Immigration journey
See STEP ONE :
"After the 1893 U.S. immigration law went into effect, each passenger had to answer a series of 29 questions (recorded on manifest lists) before board-ing the ship.
These questions included, among others: name, age, sex, marital status, occupation, nationality, abil-ity to read or write, race, physical and -mental health, last residence,
and the name and address of the nearest relative or friend in the immigrant's country of origin. Immigrants were asked whether they had at least $30;
whether they had ever been in prison, an alms--house, or an institution; or if they were polygamists or anarchists." 

(ohranger.com)

What was the process the immigrants had to go through when they came to America?
"The final test was to answer 29 questions including: name, sex, marital status, occupation, nationality, ability to read and write, race, physical and mental health,
how much money they had, prison records, and if they were polygamists or anarchists..."

TV

I Watch Too Much TV by Alev Lenz
"I think I watch too much TV
I think they sometimes lie to me
I think they're also trying to scare me
I can't sleep through the night
Although you're by my side
Life is dangerous on TV
Spinning stories in my mind
Of what there could be...
Maybe I'll go and read a book"
