The Japanese were put into concentration camps during World War 2 because Roosevelt thought of them as enemies working on a plan to hurt Americans. Roosevelt didnĘt want to take any chances and got concentration camps going in the middle of deserts. They could take only what they could carry. Some had children that could not walk. We noticed this was a mistake. After the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima, it was noticed that the Japanese- Americans were not enemies. The American government was sued afterwards. Japanese Americans were not enemies. America has learned from its mistakes in 1942.
