America’s concentration camps

Yay! My latest article is up on the FEE website. This is one I’m especially proud of. I originally titled it “America’s Concentration Camps”; the editor added the words “are a warning, not a model.” My research for it included not just websites but books (antiquated concept!).

My inspiration, if you can call it that, was Trump’s obliquely suggesting that Roosevelt’s internment of Japanese-Americans was a good thing, and some of his supporters making it more explicit. It doesn’t hurt that the article gave me an opportunity to quote George Takei.
