Father was convinced the constitution would protect him

Transcrições disponíveis nas seguintes línguas:

When Pearl Harbor was announced, we knew right away…and my father didn’t say very much about it but he knew what was going on. He knew he had his constitutional rights. And when everybody else was panicking and when executive orders came about, he was convinced that this was unconstitutional and can’t be done. As a matter of fact, while the executive order went into place, the last day he was on the ranch changing the course of the Gavilan river, he was oblivious of the fact that he had to go to camp.
