In 1942, over 100,000 Americans and others of Japanese descent were imprisoned without trial in facilities described by government documents as “concentration camps.” This action was met with acquiescence by the majority of the population. Forty years later the government admitted the crime and paid reparations to the survivors of the imprisonment. Today, we are witnessing the imprisonment of thousands of immigrants in deplorable concentration camps. This action meets several of the elements of a crime against humanity. If we do not speak out against this egregious action we will all be judged by history as being complicit in crimes against humanity.
