So was it an internment camp or a relocation camp before they renounced their citizenship?
Internment camp and relocation camps were the same, period. The terms were and are used interchangeably.
It's never acceptable to lock up a bunch of citizens and non citizens due to nothing other than mass hysteria and racism.
I love it when folks come on here crying 'it's unconstitutional' regarding gun rights but think that relocating a bunch of folks due to their slanted eyes is acceptable.
Also forced to relocate were Japanese Americans with something like 1/16 Japanese blood.
As I mentioned before, we had a lot more problems with the Italian shipbuilders on the East coast than with Japanese Americans.
