Transcript of Copy of executive order 9066

What Happened at internment camps? The people were not fed well even though they worked hard all day . The reason why the people were treated like this is the government thought that the Japanese were spies for Japan even if they were loyal to the U.S. Also they thought that the Japanese were enemy aliens and they were not supposed to be rewarded.

Also the Japanese had to do things that no one else wanted to do. They had to work in the desert and irrigate them so the desert was fit for farming. And the places they had to work were miles away from their camp, so they had to walk for hours in the hot desert heat and suffer for hours while they tried to make the land usable. Executive Order 9066 Otto Meccia

11/20/12 What is Executive order 9066 Executive order 9066 is the order made by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, that sent over 110,000 Japanese people (most were citizens) to internment camps in different camps all over the U.S. (The Japanese Internent Camps, 1942)

Also it forced all Japanese people to sell most of their belongings. Most of the Japanese people that sold their stuff got a minimal price for their stuff. What was the Reason for it to go into Effect?
The reason was to protect the country from traiors.

For instance the government feared that the Japanese people living on the west coast would become disloyal to the United States and help Japan win the war. Also they thought that the "Japs" were a threat to security in the U.S.

Another reason was so the country would not be attacked again from the enemy.

The government thought some Japanese people had helped plan the attack on Pearl Harbor. The government also wanted the people of the U.S. to be safe from any bad people (such as the Japanese). Comparing and Contrasting. Executive Order 9066 Sent many People to Internment camps. “As a result of President Franklin Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066, 110,000 people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast, most of them American citizens, were evacuated from their homes and placed in internment camps.” (The Japanese Internment Camps, 1942) Roosevelt, Franklin. "Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation." 8 Dec. 1941.

Gale Student Resources In Context. Web. 14 Nov. 2012. People in the real world were taken away from their parents and children. in the book the dad was taken away from his family, so it is similar. Also the day the bombing of Pearl Harbor happened Japanese leaders were taken from their homes. In the book Thin Wood Walls Joe's dad was taken away on the day after the bombing happened.

One difference is when Joe's dad was taken away to two camps right away, while the people in the real world normally had to go through different steps before they went into the camps.

And another similarity is that Joe and his family had to go to a place called Tule Lake. And during WWII they had a internment camp called Tule Lake "Persons of Japanese Ancestry Arriving at the Santa Anita Assembly Center." American Decades. Ed. Judith S. Baughman, et al.

Online School Edition.Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., 2012. Web. 18 Nov. 2012 More than 110,000 Japanese went to the internment camps. They were not fed well or treated well.

Most Americans at the time thought it was a good idea to send these people away. Mostly because they feared the apanese and they wanted to get revenge, and now most people think it was the worst thing this country has ever done because we now know that not all of the Japanese people were bad. "You heard that Pinedale would be a pleasant place. It was a nightmare. You heard that Tule Lake would be like a resort. Well see."(Thin Wood Walls, 126)
