In 1939, World War II began in Europe, and in 1941.....
Japan attacked a US naval base- Pearl Harbor. This caused many Americans to harshly discriminate against Japanese-Americans.
The Internment Camp
Mom, I wanna go home...
This fear of people of Japanese descent resulted in FDR's Executive Order 9066, which gave the military power to force Japanese Americans into internment camps.
But Fred Korematsu refused to leave his home in San Leandro, California
Korematsu's case was taken to the Supreme Court in order to decide whether it was constitutional or not to take him away from his home.
But the court voted 6-3 in favor of the United States because protection against spies during the war was more important than Korematsu's rights.
