‘The internment of Japanese Americans in the United States during World War II was the forced relocation and incarceration in camps in the western interior of the country of between 110,000 and 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry, most of whom lived on the Pacific Coast. Sixty two percent of the internees were United States citizens. These actions were ordered by President Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.’ Wikipedia
‘Japanese Americans were incarcerated based on local population concentrations and regional politics. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans in the mainland U.S., who mostly lived on the West Coast, were forced into interior camps. However, in Hawaii, where 150,000 plus Japanese Americans composed over one-third of the population, only 1,200 to 1,800 were also interned. The internment is considered to have resulted more from racism that from any security risk posed by Japanese Americans. Those who were as little as 1/16 Japanese and orphaned infants with ‘one drop of Japanese blood’ were placed in internment camps.’ Wikipedia

The separation of children from their parents to make a point regarding how difficult that it is to immigrate to the United States…is wrong.
The majority of the South and Central Americans, along with many Mexicans, who are seeking refuge in our country are fleeing drug cartels and gangs and threats to their lives…they have no other options!
When you listen to the cries of little more than babies…for their fathers and mothers and you see them in cages…replace those images with the loving images of your own children and your precious grandchildren and then tell me that this Hitleresque policy is just and necessary.
Times are changing much more rapidly than any of us could have imagined…what if we engage in a nuclear war and our opponent is the victor?
What will you say when our victorious adversary begins to round up our children and separate them from our privileged and white and upper middle class life?
Will we plead for humanitarian…mercy?
Or will we quote the Apostle Paul and say that we had to obey the law…just like the Germans did…in Nazi Germany?
