Between 1901 and 1908, 127,000 Japanese entered the U.S. in search of better economic conditions.As the number of Japanese increased, resentment against their success in the farming industry and fears of a “yellow peril” grew into an anti-Japanese movement.Japanese immigration to the U.S. effectively ended when Congress passed the Immigration Act of 1924, which banned all but a token few Japanese. During World War II, an estimated 120,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese citizens living in the United States were forcibly interned in 10 different camps across the country, mostly in the west.Internment was based on race or ancestry rather than the activities of the interned.For the most part, the internees remained in the camps until the end of the war.By historian Linda Canada.
