Transcript of Japanese Mismanagement of Rights

BY: Will, Andrew, Brian, and Harry HOW THE U.S. "VIOLATED" OR MISMANAGED JAPANESE RIGHTS? RELEVANT COURT CASES PERTAINING TO JAPANESE Legislation (laws) that have been passed toward the Japanese MAJOR ADVOCATES OF THE JAPANESE Facts and Statistics that support the concept that Japanese have be been "MIsmanaged" Japanese Mismanagement of Rights 1. U.S. citizens mocked and treated Japanese people poorly because they thought they were not trust worthy.

2. The Japanese had a curfew (restriction of time certain people are allowed to do something or be somewhere), and if it was broken they were sent to interment camps.

3. Japanese people were treated like property (you would think they were black). Exparte Mitsuye Endo – Mitsuye Endo, a Japanese woman, was in an internment camp. She was brought out to speak out against the government. She said she deserved to be free because was a loyal U.S citizen. The supreme court decided that this was true, and she was set free from the camps. Unfortunately not all of the Japanese people got off as lucky. Minoru Yasui v. United States – Minoru Yasui was arrested in Oregon for walking the streets after curfew. He was sentenced for one year before his case was brought back up to the supreme court, which ruled that Minoru Yasui was an actual citizen and was violated for breaking the curfew. He was sent to a internment camp until his release. (1943) Korematsu v. United States – Fred Korematsu , a 23 year old welder was in love with his Italian American girlfriend, so he ignored orders to go to an internment camp. He was then arrested for violating military orders. He brought his case to the supreme court, but the jury was against him. 40 years later, after the Yasui and Hirabayshi cases, the supreme court said that the Japanese Americans were not a threat to the United States. He was released in 1983. President Roosevelt hired a business man named Curtis Munson to look at the chances of Japanese Americans being a threat to the Security of the US. President Roosevelt was against the Japanese because he thought they were a threat to the American society. 1. McCarran Walter Act – This granted Japanese Aliens the right to become US citizens after WWII. (1952)

2. Executive Order 9066 – Written in 1944, this law gave military powers the right to ban any Japanese citizen in a military zone.

3. Civil liberties Act – In 1988, President George H.W. Bush signed this apologizing to the Japanese Americans and offering $20,000 to the survivors of the camps. 1 .In a Gallup poll in 1942, Americans said that Japanese people were ‘ treacherous, sly, and war like’.

2. In 1942, 70,000 American born Japanese Americans and 40,000 immigrants from Japan were placed in internment camps.

3. In a 1943 report by the WRA, it was told that Japanese American's housing in the camps was made up of "tar paper" – covered barracks of simple frame constructions without pluming or cooking facilities of any kind. WORK CITED/BIBLIOGRAPHY
