Re: “Nearly 300 Minidoka Internment Camp 'Pilgrims' to Visit Boise Today

The the depth of the story of the Enemy Alien Internment Program is far deeper than just anti-Japanese sentiment.

In Ludecke v. Watkins, a German immigrant who was interned filed an anti internment case. The Supreme Court ruled that when the U.S. goes to war, all immigrants from that country are subject to internment and or deportation at the government’s whim and the immigrant has no due process rights nor can a court intervene in the deportation. It doesn’t matter if you have an American spouse or children or property. Your legal status is now Enemy Alien and you could for no reason other than your ethnicity, be locked up or deported.
