In remembrance of Japanese Americans who were held in U.S. internment camps during World War II, Senator Tammy Duckworth and Senator Mazie K. Hirono, and Rep. Mark Takano have reintroduced the Korematsu-Takai Civil Liberties Protection Act (S.505/H.R.1288) which prohibits the imprisonment of American citizens based solely on race, religion, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity or disability.
The bills were first introduced last year but stalled in committee. Recognizing the current administration's propensity towards bigotry, bills like this are essential in order to protect human rights. Let's contact our Members of Congress in the House and Senate and ask them to support this legislation.
