“Our Constitution was reduced to a scrap of paper,” said the late Gordon Hirabayashi

Jan 03, 2012 “Our Constitution was reduced to a scrap of paper,” said the late Gordon Hirabayashi

Yesterday, Gordon Hirabayashi passed away. He resisted the curfews and concentration camps used against ethnic Japanese people by the United States government during World War II — which flew in the face of the very reasons used to justify the U.S. involvement in the war — later saying of those times: "My citizenship didn’t protect me one bit. Our Constitution was reduced to a scrap of paper.”
