This post about Korematsu v united states

Government determined that citizens of Japanese American ancestry were to be interned. 48 declaring that all persons of Japanese ancestry in the United States were to be removed from their homes, ordered off of any streets or public property, and placed under martial law. Residents of the West Coast Military Area were not to leave, and those who attempted to do so were to be apprehended by the U. The majority of these persons were Japanese Americans. You do not argue with them any furtherYou decide to remain on the outside of the camps. You and your group will wait on the outside of the camps for the Japanese Americans to arrive on your part. At first there is a small crowd on the outside of the gate, but then after some time the gates are closed and all the Japanese Americans go out of the camps. They seem to be quite upset to see you. You ask one of the men if you can go on the gate side of the camp. He says you have not completed all the steps to pass through the camps. He says you can go but only if the gate guard does not say anything. It is now dark and after a while you approach the gate and hear the gate guard say something. You ask him if he knows what you are asking. He responds that he has been stationed at the gate the last three years and knows the rules. You are about to ask a third man a question when he says you can not just go on his side of the gate, you have to leave through the American gate on your side. You say that is not possible, so you have to go on the other side of the gate. The gate guard responds that you will have to be in your own yard or on to the side of the road, whatever you have to do to pass through the camps. You cannot leave this side of the camp You must leave through the American side of the campYou continue to walk to your own yard or on to the other side of the camp. You keep wondering what the gate guard was referring to. You keep asking men as you walk whether they know what he was talking about. When you get closer to the American side of the camp, you hear some men talking to each other and you see the gate guard talking to another man who is trying to stop one of the men who wants to pass through the camp on to the American side. You then see the gate guard talking to the man who wanted to go on to the American side, then the gate guard and the man leave the camp.
