Talk:Korematsu v. United States
I am uncomfortable making this change, because I fear not being knowledgable enough about the topic, but my understanding was that it was *not* merely "resident aliens" caught up in the Japanese internment and suspicions (as the first paragraph states), but full-fledged citizens of the United States, some families having had citizenship for several generations, of japanese ancestry who were also interned. If I'm correct the references to it relating to "resident aliens" is too constrained (though I suppose Korematsu himself may have been an alien, rather than a citizen).
I'm not sure why the first paragraph talks about "aliens" and the rest of the entry relates to all peoples of Japanese ancestry in the U.S. Can someone who knows more about the case confirm?
[Edit: I also note that there seems to be a word missing in the last line: "a report in 1983 condemning President Roosevelt's removal order the Supreme Court decision" Possibly "and the Supreme Court's decision."?] Jesus Saves 16:33, 14 December 2007 (EST)
