Eric Holder cited President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who ordered the forced removal of more than 100,000 Japanese-Americans to internment camps during World War II, in a tweet Sunday calling for the reunification of children separated from their parents at the southern border.
Holder, who served as President Barack Obama’s first attorney general, tweeted, “Return ALL of the separated children,” along with a quote next to an image of Roosevelt: “Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The Trump administration was fiercely criticized for implementing a “zero tolerance” policy of separating illegal immigrant parents and children at the southern border. President Donald Trump has since reversed the order, but there are still a significant number of eligible children who have not been reunited with their parents.
Holder’s invocation of Roosevelt was curious, given the 32nd president signed an Executive Order in 1942 that ultimately resulted in the internment of some 112,000 Japanese-Americans, the majority of whom were second-generation U.S. citizens or third-generation children. His order, which came on the heels of Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, authorized removing people from military areas “as deemed necessary or desirable,” Politico reported.
