Using Korematsu to Reverse Roe v. Wade is Intellectually Dishonest:
A Statement from Legal Teams Challenging World War II Japanese American Incarceration Cases.
ALA is supporting the legal team that lead the coram nobis cases, reinstating Japanese American freedom from internment camps during WWII.
“We write to express our moral outrage that the 75+ year struggle to right the egregious wrong and correct the record in Korematsu is now being used as a “loaded weapon” to destroy another long-standing civil and human rights precedent, as predicted by Justice Jackson in his 1944 Supreme Court dissent. We will not stand by silently while Korematsu is once again misused.”– Peggy Nagae, one coram nobis case attorney challenging WWII Japanese American incarceration
