5 Old School Civil Rights Violations And Their Eerie Trump-Era Counterparts

KOREMATSU V. UNITED STATES SAW INTERNMENT PROVED CONSTITUTIONAL

Okay, this one is obviously a stretch (at least, you’d hope so), but it bares mentioning that during World War II, FDR issues an Executive Order that allowed the the United States government to round up and detain any American who happened to be of Japanese descent. More than 100,000 Americans were forcibly interned over the course of the war. When a Japanese-American man named Fred Korematsu sued behind the claim that his internment had violated his Fifth Amendment Rights, the Supreme Court straight up told him to get lost, ruling that the internment of Japanese-Americans was fine in order to protect the country from espionage.
