Executive Order 90666 - Why would the government order this to happen?
Executive Order 90666
Executive order 90666 was given out by President Roosevelt in the early 1940's under the governments’ orders. His words and orders were respected because he was the Chief Commander, which caused interment camping for Japanese Americans (Saltinski, 2010). The order was meant to evacuate people who were seen as a national security threat. These people were to be moved to the West Coast of the United Coast, and the majority of the citizens viewed it as unconstitutional.
