Shackled and whisked away\, often after dark with no explanations g iven to them or to their bewildered and stunned families\, they were th en sent to &quot\;special&quot\; camps in remote\, secret sites across th e United States\, different from the ones their families would begin to o ccupy from the summer of 1942. Who were these individuals? How was the FB I able to target them so soon after the surprise attack? How was this p ossible in a nation founded by and built on the toil and personal sacrifi ces of immigrants?\n\nSponsored in part by Oregon Humanities\, Oregon Her itage Commission\, Portland State University\, Spirit Mountain Community Fund\, and Target.
