A decree that will live in infamy …

… to paraphrase FDR’s famous remark in response to Japan’s attack of Pearl Harbor. On this day in history, two months after Pearl Harbor and fearing the threat of military invasion on the West Coast, FDR signed Executive Order 9066 into law, a modern-day “removal act” creating a legal framework for the internment of all persons of Japanese ancestry in the U.S. More details about E.O. 9066 are available here, via Josh Blackman & Randy Barnett.
