The Japanese American internment was the US government placing everyone of Japanese descent who was in the US during WWII into concentration camps for the duration of the war.
Halliburton and others are building prisons at a fever pitch. Privatized internment is a profit center, after all. There's no incentive in that system for rehabilitation of release either.
The current batch of Federalists, the false-Zionist Republicans and Democrats, will take the US into wars and use the concentration camps or worse against ethnic groups and dissenters (accused of the vague and hypocritical crime of sedition) without due process of law.
Understand that, as of December 2006, the US has the highest per-capita incarceration rate in the world. Also, over twenty percent of those imprisoned have not been sentenced. Other nations have a higher percentage of un-sentenced prisoners, but that is no excuse for the US. A certain number, not all, of the un-sentenced have been found to be too violently dangerous, based upon prior records, to release pending trial.
Over fifty percent are in prison for low-level drug violations. That is no way to handle the problem.
