It is only one more item to add to a list of shameful happening like My Lai, American slavery, Sand Creek, The Trail of Tears, the Civil War POW camps or the Black Kettle Massacre at the Washita.

Why were Japanese Americans sent to relocation centers after the pearl harbor?

American politicians feared that Japanese-Americans would be more loyal to their own ethnic group and hence, to Japan, than they were to the country in which they lived, America. There was no evidence for this and it was undoubtedly wrong to send the Japanese-Americans to internment camps; it is a blot on American history that this was done. They were scared that the Japanese had spys on the east coast.

Why did the Americans lock the Japanese in camps?

It was feared that Japanese Americans would be more loyal to Japan, which was at war with the US during WW II, than they were to the US in which they lived. This was very unfair to the Japanese who had done nothing to demonstrate disloyalty to America, and the wartime internment of the Japanese remains a shameful blot on American history.

What is the history of Japanese internment camps?

Japanese internment camps sprung up during World War Two. These camps relocated 110,000 Japanese Americans on the West Coast. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a factor in the development of these camps.

What was the cause of Japanese internment?

I was generally interested in Japanese interment because I wanted to know what there involvement was in the great depression. I learned that during February 19th the anniversary of a sad day in American history. It was on that date in 1942, in the midst of the response to the hostilities that began on December 7, 1941, that Executive Order 9066 was issued, subsequently enforced by the criminal penalties of a statute enacted March 21, 1942, resulting in the uprooting of loyal Americans. Over one hundred thousand persons of Japanese ancestry were removed from their homes, detained in special camps, and eventually relocated. The tremendous effort by the War Relocation Authority and concerned Americans for the welfare of these Japanese-Americans may add perspective to that story, but it does not erase the setback to fundamental American principles. Fortunately, the Japanese-American community in Hawaii was spared the indignities suffered by those on our mainland. We now know what we should have known then--not only was that evacuation wrong, but Japanese-Americans were and are loyal Americans. On the battlefield and at home, Japanese-Americans -- names like Hamada, Mitsumori, Marimoto, Noguchi, Yamasaki, Kido, Munemori and Miyamura -- have been and continue to be written in our history for the sacrifices and the contributions they have made to the well-being and security of our nation.
