Nov. 13, 1941: An FBI investigation into the Los Angeles Japanese Chamber of Commerce and the Central Japanese Assn. reveals monthly donations of $4,000 to $5,000 to the Japanese government “for the army and navy,” The Times says.
Atty. Gen. Francis Biddle says that “plans for the internment of ‘dangerous Japanese aliens’ already have been devised,” The Times reports.
“Biddle confirmed reports that the government has plans arranged for the segregation of Nipponese alien groups for a ‘temporary period’ if relations between the United States and Japan are broken off…..
Large groups of Japanese have flocked to the Justice Department to profess their loyalty to this country and to express their concern over the delicate relations existing between Washington and Tokyo, Biddle said, and these groups have been promised fair treatment if they do not violate any laws.
