Exempt from exclusion


Chu Hoy, a merchant with the Kwong Sun Chong & Company of 30 Mott Street in New York City, left Seattle for China to bring his wife and children into the United States. As a Chinese merchant he was exempt from the immigration laws that prevented Chinese from entering the country. This exemption also applied to his wife, Chin Hong Sze, and his son, Chin A. Chiao, who left Har Low in the Sun Woey district, traveled through Canada, and entered the U.S. at Malone, New York in November 1906.
