For those who have experienced the Japanese internment camps and special registration of Muslims after 9/11 under National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS), they know how painful such practices are. The Japanese internment and the NSEERS were among the most shameful practices of the United States during world war II and after September 11. Ultimately, the Reagan administration apologized for the Japanese internment and NSEERS was abandoned.
Lately, there are ideas related to such practices are being revived under the Trump administration. We hope that the good America will fight this. Here is what George Takei, someone who family was placed into such camps have to say about it. We agree with him.
