President Biden vows “never again” on 80th anniversary of Japanese American “incarceration”

All national dailies reported over the weekend that Feb. 19 marked the 80th anniversary of the signing of a presidential order that led to the “incarceration” of some 120,000 Japanese Americans during WWII, saying that on Feb. 18 President Biden released a statement in which he reiterated the U.S. government’s apology to Japanese Americans who lost their citizenship for no justifiable reason. The papers said the President pledged not to repeat the same mistake, using the expression in Japanese, “nidoto nai yoni,” which translates to “let it not happen again.”
