"In 1942, the US government forced more than 110,000 Japanese Americans to leave their homes and live in military-style camps. The interment that uprooted families and tore apart communities was the result of racism, under the mask of supposed security threats, none which were ever proven. Forced migration is not a new concept in US history. More than 100 years prior, the Indian Removal Policy forced over 60,000 Native Americans from their homeland, upon the same land the ten concentration camps are located."
