    True that America (disgracefully) treated the Japanese as enemies by placing them in internment camps, and contrary to the Constitution, but this was in another era about 55 or so years ago. One such person was a Mr. Fred Korematsu, who was convicted in the 1940's of not reporting to an internment camp. He appealed his conviction in 1944, however, the Court let it stand. He went to court again 40 years later in the early 1980's to argue his conviction and his unjust placement in an internment camp. This time, his conviction was overturned, and what followed was that Congress passed the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 which apologized to the Japanese people and authorized monetary reparation to those of Japanese ancestry who were survivors of the Japanese American internment camps. There was also a Presidential letter of apology in 1993 by Bill Clinton who also awarded Korematsu the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
