Japanese Internment camps

Summary

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7,1941, all the Japanese Immigrants, and Japanese born in America were put in internment camps. President Roosevelt sighned an Executive order that authorized the removal and incarceration of 110,000 Japanese Americans. 2/3 of those in the internment camps were American citizens, and 1/2 were children. The Japanese were told that they were being taken to "Resetlment Communities". When the Japanese community arived in there new living space, the whole facility was surrounded by barbed wire and had military armed police, gaurding the borders and enteries of the community. The Japanese minority were forced to live in cramped one roomed houses. There houses had no furniture besides cots, and pot bellied stoves.

Cause and Effects

The cause and effect of the bombing on Pearl Harbor left all Americans aggrivated and ready for revenge. They began to revolt against all Japanese citezens in America. Everyone was so angered with the Japanese they took them into internment camps, because they were thought of as spies.

Japanese Loyalty Test

While the Japanese were inside the camps, they had to take loyalty tests. The first tests were for men to go to the sighn up boards around the camp and fill out a paper inlisting themselves in the US military. The other test was distributed on February 8,1943. This was a paper questionare that all Japanese had to take. The test was called The Statement of U.S. citizenship of Japanese American Ancestory. All inmates over the age of 17 had to fill out the document. Two questions on the paper seperated the loyal and disloyal Japanese. Those who were found disloyal were brutally beaten or killed by there fellow Japanese people.

On December 17,1944 The Supream court ruled the government could NO LONGER DETAIN LOYAL JAPANESE CITEZENS. All Japanese citizens being held in internment camps throughout America were to be released as soon as possible.
