In 1942 President Roosevelt had issued an Executive Order that required most of the Japanese-Americans to be relocated to internment camps for the entire period of the Second World War. The Japanese-Americans were considered to be a threat to the security of the country even though there was no tangible evidence to ascertain the claims. The Japanese-Americans were believed to have their allegiance to Japan and most were treated as spies even though the majority of those that were relocated to the internment camps were citizens of the USA. During the war, most of the Japanese-American soldiers suffered racial stereotypes despite their commitment and dedication towards making the US emerge victorious. They deemed their sacrifice the main show of their allegiance to the US as they were citizens of the country just like the white majority.
