Learning From History: Japanese American Incarceration And Today's Immigration Detention

Sep 19, 2018

Earlier this year, the Trump Administration put its zero-tolerance policy into place at the border, leading to the separation of immigrant parents and children. Now some people are looking back at history to try to understand how this policy truly affects those involved. 

Dr. Arthur Evans, the CEO of the American Psychological Association, said the current immigration detention has parallels to the Japanese American incarceration during World War II. Dr. Evans spoke with Wyoming Public Radio’s Kamila Kudelska about those similarities, and how the country can move forward with the knowledge of past mistakes.
