Ten internment camps were established in California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arkansas, eventually holding 120,000 persons. Many were forced to sell their property at a severe loss before departure. Communal troubles overwhelmed the internees: older Issei (immigrants) were dispossessed of their usual respect when their children, the Nisei (American-born), were given powerful positions within the camps. A survivor from Pearl Harbor, Dale, related : “To the best of my knowledge Japanese Americans were not locked up after the Pearl Harbor attack. You cannot lump them together under one category.
On Feb, 24th 1942, Prime Minister William Lyon Makenzie King issued a number of orders-in-council to force them back to Japan or disperse them Far East of the Rockies. Considering they were not being seen as threats to the country, to issue such an outrageous order-in-council for no apparent reason Is simply a racist act that 's should be seen as unjust. Ten days later they trained Japanese down to Hastings park where they were put in animal stalls, dehumanized and inadequately fed. To do this to another person who has done nothing but have a different pigmentation is sick nothing Japanese Canadians did led them to deserve
In the 1900s there was a lot of conflict between the Native Americans and America, the Native Americans have been around longer than the other explorers who came after some time and decided to take their land and, there was conflict between the Japanese after the Japanese had bombed an American base in Hawaii (Pearl Harbor). But who was treated the worst? The Native Americans were. This was because they had their children taken from them, were forced onto reservations, and they only had the clothes that were on their back. The Japanese were put into internment camps for a safety precaution because of what their country did to our Military base.
After 3 years of life at internment camps, they were out. They return to their homes after all the time. Forty years later, 100,000 Japanese Americans get payed $20,000 as an apologize. Nowadays, Japanese Internment camps are very sad. Now since we know about this let 's try to prevent stuff like executive order 9066 and these camps
Forty years later, the Civil Liberties Act was issued preventing something like this from ever happening again. As part of the Civil Liberties Act, an apology was issued to all Japanese Americans that had been victims of Executive Order 9066 and each victim received $20,000 (Burns). The country will forever be changed because of Executive Order 9066. Thousands of lives were uprooted and forever changed because of the fear that was gripping the country. American citizens were treated like prisoners because of their Japanese background.
Over 127,000 United States citizens were imprisoned during World War II. Their crime? Being of Japanese ancestry. In 1941, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor close to Honolulu, Hawaii This then caused World War II. The United State’s government then built isolation camps and made the japanese citizens stay in these camps.
In 1942, policy makers of the United States, faced with an increasingly daunting threat from the west made a fateful decision to confine 120 thousand Japanese American citizens in internment camps, displacing thousands of families and creating an anti-Japanese sentiment that would persist in America for years to come. Not only was this morally wrong, it was factually incorrect that the our fellow citizens the Japanese Americans were disloyal as demonstrated by their heroism as American soldiers in the European theater.
What if you were stripped of all your rights in the a blink of an eye? The Japanese-Canadians experienced the horrid and life changing events of internment camps which were targeted specifically towards them. All Canadians of Japanese heritage residing only on the West coast of British Columbia had their homes, farms, businesses and personal property sold and completely liquidated. This was all due to the government 's quick actions against the Japanese. These actions were fuelled by the events of Pearl Harbour during WW2.
Upon hearing about the forced removal of the Japanese from the West Coast, Carr was appalled. He exclaimed to his staff, "Now that 's wrong! Some of these Japanese are citizens of the United States!" Thus, when the opportunity arose to aid the Japanese-Americans, Carr 's conscience would not allow him to exclude any American citizen from their right to travel freely within the United States. Defying public expectations, Ralph Carr announced that the Japanese would be welcome in Colorado.
Many Americans were scared of another attack. Henceforth, people forced President Roosevelt to take action against the Japanese who were living in the United States at that time. President Roosevelt endorsed the internment, which allowed the military to designate certain zones. They were allowed exclude Japanese from this area. All the Japanese were excluded from the Pacific Coast.
Executive Order 9066 was one of the reasons that Internment camps were out in place. The other reason was the surprise air raid of Pearl Harbor. Franklin D. Roosevelt was the person who put it into action because of bad leadership and public opinion. The Pearl Harbor attack created even more racism towards Japanese Americans. During a time period of 35 years(1889-1924) there were over 200,000 Japanese immigrants that came into the U.S. With a threat of loss jobs on mostly white controlled farms.
Even more anger formed from the fact that japanese prison camps were notoriously cruel to the prisoners incarcerated therein. Some results from America 's involvement in the war were the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the loss of 407,300 American soldiers. With that many americans dying America wanted the war to come to an immediate end, the solution was the atomic bomb. America created a total of three of the bombs one for a test firing the other two were used on two different cities in Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing 225,000
