FDR evacuates Japanese-Americans off west coast

WE CAN'T TRUST THEM!

Franklin D. Roosevelt is relocating 120,000 people off the west coast and into internment camps. America is split in two on the situation, where do you stand?

Forcing Japanese-Americans to sell their houses and property, freeing up real estate for the true Americans.

IS THIS REALLY NECESSARY?

The U.S. government is really that terrified of their own citizens? The relocation of 120,000 people off the west coast and into internment camps is taking away peoples rights as citizens. In the Internment camps, families were kept together but the authority was given to the natural born citizen, which happened to be the children. This causes so many problems not only in the internment camp, but in the core structure of a family.

SOME TIME LATER...

Decades after the war ended, the U.S. Congress finally awarded reimbursement payments to those who survived the camps. In 1988, Congress awarded $20,000 to each person who survived the camps, which in 1988, was only 73,000 people. Was this enough? Did this make everything okay? How would society react to these actions today? These are all questions the U.S. government faces today, all of which do not have solidified answers to.
