 Has anyone heard of Executive Order 9066

There are some who hotly dispute the notion that American citizens can be incarcerated in concentration camps, er excuse me detention centers, without due process. Indeed some say it has never happened here. There are some who say the idea of incarcerating American citizens in federal detention centers is unthinkable. They would be protected by the Constitution.

Has anyone heard of Executive Order 9066?

 Re: Has anyone heard of Executive Order 9066


this is an old executive order against japenese during world war II.

Executive Order 9066 was a United States presidential executive order signed and issued during World War II by the United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, authorizing the Secretary of War to prescribe certain areas as military zones, clearing the way for the deportation of Japanese Americans to internment camps.

Maybe what you are thinking of is: Executive Order 13603

some are saying this order can have people put in concentration camps at the will of the government and martial law. Though this is what certain people are reading into it:


The National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order (Executive Order 13603) is an order of the United States' President signed by President Barack Obama on March 16, 2012.[1] The purpose of this executive order is to delegate authority and address national defense resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950.[2] Executive Order 13603 provides the framework and authority for the allocation or appropriation of resources, materials and services to promote national defense.[3]

The Act also authorizes the President to requisition private property, force industry to expand production and the supply of basic resources, impose wage and price controls, settle labor disputes, control consumer and real estate credit, establish contractual priorities, and allocate raw materials towards national defense.

Contrary to a few initial claims otherwise, the Order appears to update long-existing directives that have been issued as far back as the Truman Administration and makes no claim to allowing the federal government to confiscate private property or declare martial law.[4][5] In particular, this executive order removes the name of the Federal Emergency Management Agency from the previous orders, and replaces it with references to branches of the Department of Homeland Security, to bring the previous orders up to date with changes in the structure of the Federal Government.[5]
