Internment Vs. 5th Amendment

Reader comment on item: Why the Japanese Internment Still Matters
in response to reader comment: No racism during Japanese internment?

Submitted by A.M. (United States), Oct 30, 2008 at 17:39

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 the government became unconstitutional because the Japanese- Americans had nothing to do with the bombing on pearl harbor. The Judicial Branch was supposed to had struck down the order because it was unconstitutional, and was violating the Jaanese- Americans' 5th Amendment. The 5th Amendment clearly states that U.S. citizens, including people who are not citizens yet live within the U.S. boundries, have the right to " due process", which means that people can not be puished without formal law process. The Japanese- Americans did not get the " due process", and where injustly incarcerated in internment camps.
