Beware of warped thinking exhibited by the president

Trump’s calling into question the loyalty of Jews who vote for Democrats brings to mind the warped thinking leading to the forced internment of virtually all Japanese Americans during World War II. In both cases the loyalty of American citizens was and is questioned.

While practicing law many years ago, I had the privilege of representing a family of Japanese American farmers, all of whom were removed from their homes and farms during the war. Several years later one of them put together a photographic book retelling their experience at the Heart Mountain internment camp. The inscribed copy he presented to me reads, “Tell your sons.”

By this letter, I am sharing his warning with you.
