Pearl r was attacked on December 7, 1941. The Japanese were the ones who attacked Pearl Harbor. This action brought America into WWII.
Soon following the bombing were stories. The news was all over it with what they thought was true. This created a bunch of different stories about it.
Soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor the President had enough. On February 17,1942 President Franklin D. Roosevelt had enough and signed Executive Order 9066. The Executive Order was to put all the Japanese into internment camps.
The internment camps held about 117,000 Japanese in total. Many of the Japanese in the camps were American citizens and fought in the army.
The internment camps weren't awful places but they also weren't good places. Many of them offered work but didn't pay very good. They also had a lot of food sortages so a lot of them started raising cattle and growing their own food.
After most of the Japanese got released they went home. When they got home they had nothing. Most of their goods were stolen and properties sold. So many of them relocated in America.
