Help received in fighting deportation


We were going to be deported in 1947 September, when we were getting out of camp. It wasn't until 1954 that we got settled.

So it gives you an idea that somebody's done all this work on behalf of our family. The legalese on that, let alone just the English language, my mom and dad couldn't read it. So someone's doing all this on behalf of us, this is Wayne Collins, Reverend Fukuda. It's wonderful that these people give you this kind of time, be caring enough to do that. Reverend Fukuda — and I'm jumping around — but he found our sponsor family. Prior to that, he said he wanted to be the sponsor.
