Video featuring comparison by Japanese-American speaker to internment in WWII

On the 25th of April, the US Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Trump's Muslim Ban case as protesters gathered outside. A Japanese-American speaker warned of the ugly precent set by the 1944 Supreme Court Korematsu_v._United_States case.

In that case, the Supreme Court upheld the wholesale mass incarceration of Japanese-Americans during WWII. If the Supreme court overturns the Muslim Ban, Trump will suffer s serious strategic defeat, the loss of a core campaign promise.
