Emil Guillermo: New Amok podcast, “Emil Amok’s Takeout,” on the kidnapping claims of the forgotten people of the Japanese Internment during WWII, Japanese from Latin America

You can call it “The Other Roundup.”
Art Shibayama will tell you exactly what it meant to him and why all Americans need to be ashamed.

Shibayama was just a 12-year-old boy in Lima,Peru. A Peruvian citizen.
His whole family was taken by the U.S. government and incarcerated in America.

If you don’t know about the Japanese Latin American part of the World War II internment story, you’re not alone.

When Executive Order 9066 cleared the way for the round-up of Japanese and Japanese Americans in the U.S. at the start of World War II, a different kind  of roundup was taking place in Latin America, especially Peru.

The U.S. government was taking Latin American citizens of Japanese descent, what the victims call kidnappings. Those taken were of all ages, and often, whole families were rounded-up. They were placed on U.S. ships and took a long boat ride to America.  They lived in camps like one set up in Crystal City, Texas.

Art Shibayama says they were kidnapped to provide the U.S. a supply of pawns to trade for U.S. GIs held by the Japanese.

Emil Guillermo: Check out Emil Amok’s Takeout…our new podcast

The Donald at the Merkel presser didn’t like being questioned by the Germans.  Just wait till next week when his Obama lie about wiretapping is formally exposed. There is no there there. Just the Donald’s own fake news to distract us from the real issues of Jeff Sessions pre-election actions, and his assault on the poor and middle class through budget cuts and health care decimation.

Have you checked out our new podcast?

It’s right here. And also on the AALDEF blog….

On the travel ban 2.0’s rejection by a federal judge in Hawaii.

The  Justice Dept. is appealing the rejection by a Maryland judge to get it before a different appeals court in Virginia. The whole thing will likely go to the Supreme Court.

Also. an interview with Jenn Fang of reappropriate.co, on Kuchibhotla and whether the South Asian’s killing is a Vincent Chin moment for all Asian Americans.

It’s Emil Amok’s Takeout.

Emil Amok’s Takeout—Trump’s soft new tone hardly masks hardline on immigration. How his policies are worse than even the nadir of immigration policy, the Chinese Exclusion Act.

This was recorded before Trump’s speech before the joint session of the Congress.  But instead of overpraise for striking a civil tone, even a presidential tone, overall his words don’t match the harsh anti-immigrant actions he’s displayed in his first 40 days.
