president roosevelt established that the japanese amaericans go into internment camps. he was not justified because the ones in america at the time didnt have anything to do with the bombing, on the other hand there were some japanese who acted loyal to their culture and were spies. this would be a just reason for him to have done that. the event of pearl harbor president roosevelt thought it would be a good idea to put the japanese americans in internment camps. he decided to do this because there were spies that helped japan instead of being loyal to the country they were in.
The government used the fact the parents of the Nisei (Issei) were aliens and since they’re aliens they must be disloyal to America. This was not the case because the Government didn’t allow the Issei to become citizens because of bias stereotypes the Americans had of the Issei. The Nisei had their rights violated because by birth they were Americans so that automatically makes them loyal to America. When the government came and collected them, they were given questionnaires that was supposed to prove their loyalty on how they answered, which meant the government was collecting all types of private information without valid reason which is in violation of The Fourth Amendment. When Robert Gordon Sproul gave his speech, he took the stance of defending the Japanese Americans.
As it drew close to the ending of World War II, members of the Supreme Court were ruling against holding Americans citizens without having criminal charges. After the decision was made Japanese Americans made their way back into society as free citizen. However, that would come at a price because they were walking back into a society that was racist and prejudiced. Not only that but there were limited resources for the Japanese to reenter what they once called home.
It ties into explore by the government making the decision of signing Executive Order 9066. The government explored new ways of keeping any Japanese spies contained in internment campss. After Pearl Harbor, the Japanese experienced racism and exclusion of other people. Signs were put on stores and neighborhoods saying, “No Japs!” Also, military was encountered on a daily basis for the Japanese while in internment camp.
This then caused World War II. The United State’s government then built isolation camps and made the japanese citizens stay in these camps. The Japanese- American Internment Camps impacted United States history through the rupture of the United States government and japanese citizens. The Japanese American Internment camps had a big impact on the United States because it caused separation between Japan and the United States (Daine 8,9).
1. When the camp closed, Japanese people did not want to leave since they did not have anywhere to go. I do believe their fears for logical because everything had been taken from them and they were not sure how they would earn or living. During the WWII, they lost the mainly important things in their life such as home, money, and job. In fact, Manzanar was an ending for the Japanese people, and they broke under the pressure of this hurt.
Coping With War By: Branson In the books Camp Harmony and Unbroken during World War II, some people lost their freedom. After Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, the Japanese Americans in Camp Harmony lost their freedom. Because of the possibility of them being spies, the government wanted them to be monitored so America didn 't get spied on. In Unbroken, Louis Zamporelli washed ashore from being lost at sea and landed in Japan.
Prior to the attack on Pearl Harbour in early December 1941, the American people were hesitant about joining World War II. However the attack which impacted the nation directly, ignited a desire for revenge on the Japanese. The attack sent the country into a panic, and the American government were not at all pleased with the unprovoked surprise attack. Thus, the use of racial stereotyping and dehumanising the Japanese, representing them as rats, became prominent during World War II. The American government used the attack on Pearl Harbour to demonise the Japanese in various different ways, creating a common hatred for their enemy nationwide.
The Japanese living on the west coast was placed in concentration camps. The type of concentration camp was just like being in prison, and the Japanese did get fed. The Japanese people were not trusted by the military because they were at war with the Japanese. Since the US was at war with the Japanese the military felt as though it would be beneficial to put the Japanese in concentration camps, to protect US citizens from terrorist attacks. The Constitutional issue is that it does not say anywhere in the Constitution that you cannot arrest someone because they are Japanese.
In 1944, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the exclusion orders. The Court limited its decision to the validity of the exclusion orders, adding, "The provisions of other orders requiring persons of Japanese ancestry to report to assembly centers and providing for the detention of such persons in assembly and relocation centers were separate, and their validity is not in issue in this proceeding. " The United States Census Bureau assisted the internment efforts by providing confidential neighborhood information on Japanese Americans. The Bureau 's role was denied for decades, but was finally proven in
The government protected White lives and took this into account to create the 1913 California Alien Land Law that was aimed at the Japanese, since they were not legible to become citizens and therefore preventing them from acquiring land. Furthermore, Japanese Americans wanted to be naturalized, like Takao Ozawa. The District Court, Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court denied the 1914 Takao Ozawa Naturalization case. Ozawa considered himself a “free white person” that had adequately converted into white culture without keeping any Japanese ties, but since he did not have white characteristics his case was overturned
