On December 7th 1941, the Japanese attacked

and war hysteria seized the country.

Executive Order 9066
  • State representatives put pressure on President
    Roosevelt to take action against those of
    Japanese descent living in the US.
  • On February 19th 1942 Roosevelt signed Executive
    Order 9066. Under the terms of the Order, some
    120,000 people of Japanese descent living in the
    US were removed from their homes and placed
    in internment camps.

  • The US justified their action by claiming that
    there was a danger of those of Japanese descent
    spying for the Japanese. However more than two
    thirds of those interned were American citizens
    and half of them were children. None had ever
    shown disloyalty to the nation. In some cases
    family members were separated and put in
    different camps. During the entire war only ten
    people were convicted of spying for Japan and
    these were all Caucasian.
