Japanese internment camps

Definition

Japanese internment camps rate
(Noun) Arguably the most shameful incident in U.S. jurisprudence. Shortly after Pearl Harbor, about 120,000 Issei/Nisei/their descendants, living on the West Coast (generously defined) "non-citizens and others" (i.e., citizens) were rounded up and without trial sent to primitive/isolated camps for almost all WWII with little formal/widespread remorse until long afterward. (Lord! American Army machine guns, pointed inward!) Was it a valid war measure? In early 1942, maybe, but by late 1944 "everyone" saw it as a farce. (I mean, the Nisei were fighting the Germans by then and compiling a distinguished war record.)
