I just hope they are made into exclusion zones like we did in WW2 to ensure they are forced to stay there. And the Japanese-Americans in WW2 were *actual* Americans/Citizens. Screw illegal trash

Can't debate the facts, so attack the messenger. I guess you go around waiting for someone to say something out of anger and quote for your whataboutism. Keep it classy Tiny.

Why do Dems support concentration camps?
IIn 1980 [Carter Admin], Congress established the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC) to study the matter. On February 24, 1983, the commission issued a report entitled Personal Justice Denied, condemning the internment as unjust and motivated by racism and xenophobic ideas rather than factual military necessity. Internment camp survivors sued the federal government for $24 million in property loss, but lost the case. However, the Commission recommended that $20,000 in reparations be paid to those Japanese Americans who had suffered internment.
The Civil Liberties Act of 1988 exemplified the Japanese American redress movement that impacted the large debate about the reparation bill. There was question over whether the bill would pass during the 1980s due to the poor state of the federal budget and the low support of Japanese Americans covering 1% of the United States. However, four powerful Japanese-American Democrats and Republicans who had war experience, with the support of Democratic congressmen Barney Frank, sponsored the bill and pushed for its passage as their top priority.
