What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 23 in a series – “…the government cannot detain loyal citizens against their will.”

August 21st, 2019

“The final case challenged the internment itself. Soon after she was evacuated, in April 1942, Mitsue Endo, a twenty-one-year-old Nisei and an employee of the California State Highway Commission, had filed a petition for habeus corpus, protesting her detention at Topaz Camp in central Utah. She spent two and a half years awaiting the high court’s decision, which was that she had been right: the government cannot detain loyal citizens against their will.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
