It's embarrassing what we did to them. They were all US citizens. I can understand why they did what they did but it was wrong. That's part of the problem of judging past events through the viewpoint of today. It was a whole different world. People thought differently, not to excuse that behavior.

In travel ban decision, Supreme Court overturns notorious WWII case enabling Japanese Americans' incarceration. While upholding President Trump's travel ban on Tuesday, the Supreme Court Tuesday also overruled a 1944 decision allowing internment of 120,000 Japanese Americans when it backed President Trump's right to limit travel to the United States by residents of predominantly Muslim countries. In Korematsu v. United States, the court ruled 6-3 on Dec. 18, 1944, that the U.S. Government had the right to exclude and detain 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II because of national security concerns.
