This story on the treatment of Islamic immigrants is eerily reminiscent of the early days of the Japanese-American Internment in WW2. My father's friend, Jane Okuda, was a child when it happened; I interviewed her and wrote a detailed paper on her experiences and those of her family...and this just chills me. I've been trying to ignore politics lately, but this is just downright awful.

Re: Reasons for detaining

If the police did that, it would not be entrapment. It would be a sting operation which is done all the time and legal. SOme of the more inventive, and successful operations involve informing the suspects that they have won a prize and lure them to a place where the police are waiting, and then arrest them all there, which, is perfectly leagl.
As for the Japanese internment camps, well, yes it was a bad thing. However, this is not the same thing. The people that were arrested here were the ones with something incorrect in their paperwork. Therefore, they were in violation of a law, and well, they should be arrested. I am glad that they released the people that had their paperwork in order, or proved after arrest that the paperwork was faulty through no fault of their own. That proves to me that the system works.
