Supreme Court OK's President's Violation Of Civil Rights

In 1944, the US Supreme Court validated the internment of the Japanese, and US citizens of Japanese descent. It has not retreated from that ruling, as far as I am aware. The case is:

Korematsu v. United States

Look it up on Google. Anything that's being done by the current administration that might violate certain civil rights is small potatoes to the "Civilian Exclusion Order No. 34 of the Commanding General of the Western Command, U.S. Army" which required the internment of all Japanese for the course of the war.
Interestingly enough, there were allowances made. The most obvious was the creation of the 442 Regimental Combat Team, made up of almost entirely Japanese Americans. This unit fought in Europe, and was the most decorated unit in the US Army during WW2.
So if you don't want to be subjected to investigations by the government, maybe joining the Army would be a good idea. Heh-Heh.

I'll be back
