LOCK UP THOSE JAPANESE
In 1941, Japanese fighter jets flew over Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. They wanted to create chaos among the Navy by bombing their ships. Thousands were killed or injured. It was a day that lived in infamy.
Executive Order 9066: February 19, 1942 President Franklin D Roosevelt gives orders to remove all Japanese from the west coast because they are a threat.
Since the Japanese bombed us, we ripped Japanese Americans out of their homes and threw them in internment camps.
One man who was against being punished for what the Japanese did said that it was unfair to lose his home. So, Korematsu took his opinions to court. They said that it was okay to keep the Japanese locked up because they might be a threat to us.
It is not fair for my people to be encamped for something we had nothing to do with. We love our country. We came here to live the American Dream, not have americans live our dream.
Since the Japanese Americans were stuck in these internment camps, they spent their time watching the sun set and feeling alone until the day they would be set free.
