The Japanese Americans were then forced into internment camps simply because of the whites fear and paranoia. The Japanese first began to immigrate to the United States in 1868.

It honors the Nisei, second-generation Japanese-Americans, who descended from the Issei, the first generation of Japanese to come to America.
