Roosevelt signed a document Feb. 19,1942 stating that all people of Japanese ancestry from California and parts of Washington, Oregon, and Arizona, needed to be removed. Put them in internment camps because of their fear for another attack by the Japanese. While approximately 10,000 were able to relocate to other parts of the country of their own choosing, the remainder-roughly 110,000 men women and children-were sent to hastly constructed camps called "War Relocation Centers" in remote portions of the nation's interior. After the Japanese were let out of the camps, a majority of them returned to the Pacific Coast. They began to start new lives and try to forget what happened. Many of them lost there land when they were brought to the camps, so when they returned they tried to regain what they had lost. In 1948, Congress agreed to pay for some of that property. They began by giving the Japanese-Americans less than ten cents for each dollar they had lost. By giving them back what they had lost was a beginning of saying "We're sorry." Also they started a civil liberties act stating "The Congress recognizes that, as described in the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians, a grave injustice was done to both citizens and permanent residents of Japanese ancestry by the evacuation, relocation, and internment of civilians during World War II. Finally, the Japanese began to live a normal life, except many had trouble finding jobs and getting money loans. After years went by, they started farms and bought new houses. Others were damaged for life. This tragic event left different people, with different emotions. Many were killed and other wounded forever. Today many are suing to be paid back what their family lost.
