Virginia Mayor Cites Japanese Internment in Statement on Barring Refugees - NBC News

My article for NBC Asian America. Everybody is reacting to that Mayor in Roanoke Virginia
"The fact that not one single case of espionage by a Japanese American was proven underscores how wrong Mayor Bowers is to positively cite this policy. Instead of keeping us safe, Japanese internment compromised our principles and demonized an entire population of Americans. It is outrageous to let the same kind of xenophobia influence our policy today. If we do, we will only regret it again."
