There are several James (listed as Jas or J) during 1885-1891 arriving at the Port of NY.But There is an Elizabeth arriving with several children aboard the ship Arizona in 1887
I find none arriving at California ports during this period
Emigratemeans to leave one country or region to settle in another.",
To "immigrate" means to come to a country of which one is not a native, usually for permanent residence
So James would have emigrated from UK and immigrated to California.
You would have emigrated from the US and immigrated to Canada
