The Center for Constitutional Rights: “The history of the Japanese internment, and the ensuing apologies and atonement of each branch of the U.S. government, provide twin lessons. First, infringement of rights on the basis of class membership—race in the World War II era, and religion in this case—is not only inherently injurious but can and does produce injury. Second, a proffered military or police exigency, no matter how great, must be subjected to the strictest of scrutiny on the merits rather than accepted at the threshold as the basis for dismissal of an equal protection claim.” Amicus brief by descendants of Japanese Americans who were subject to internment during World War II, arguing that the Court of Appeals should reverse the district court’s dismissal of a lawsuit, brought by Muslim Advocates and the Center for Constitutional Rights, challenging the blanket surveillance of American Muslims in New Jersey by the NYPD."
