Why were Japanese-Americans sent to internment camps? a. Japanese Americans were commonly referred to as “alien enemies” by many Americans. b. Many Americans feared Japanese spies and attacks from Japanese-Americans. c. Many Americans feared that Japanese-Americans were loyal to Japan, and not to the U.S. d. All of the above reasons are true.

Answer:

The correct answer is D. Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps because they were commonly referred to as "alien enemies" by many Americans, who feared Japanese spies and attacks from Japanese-Americans, and that Japanese-Americans were loyal to Japan.

Explanation:

The internment camps for Japanese in the United States accommodated some 120,000 people, who were deported under pressure from the federal government, in establishments designed for that purpose in the interior of the country, during 1942 and 1948.

The objective was to move them from their habitual residence, mostly on the West Coast, to facilities built under extreme security measures. The fields were closed with barbed wire fences, guarded by armed guards, and located in places far from any population center. Attempts to leave the camp sometimes resulted in the dejection of the inmates.
