After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, on December 7, 1941, President Roosevelt ruled the infamous Executive Order 9066. This gave permission to military forces to relocate the 120,000 Japanese residents off the West Coast and into internment camps for "national defense".
Executive Order 9066
Even before the 9066 order or WWII, there had always been discrimination pointed at Japanese Americans. However, according to the Munson Report, Japanese families were not intruding the workforce or the world of business, rather most had small shops or farms and were more interested in settling down and staring a family.
Nonetheless, evacuation notices were posted in Japanese neighborhoods, and the residents had no choice but to pack their things and get ready to leave.
People had to sell all of their belongings, because they could only take whatever they could carry with them onto the trains. They sold cars, houses, furniture, farmland, and their businesses.
Most of the people interned were legal American citizens and/or born in America. Half of the people incarcerated were children.
While being assorted into one of the ten internment camps, some families were separated. They would not see each other again until four years later, after their release.
