Trump supporter cites Japanese internment camps as 'precedent' for Muslim registry
by Evelyn Rupert
A supporter of President-elect Donald Trump cited the United States' use of internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II as precedent for Trump's rumored registry of Muslim immigrants.
"It is legal; they say it will hold constitutional muster. I know the the [American Civil Liberties Union] is going to challenge it, but I think it will pass," Carl Higbie, a former Navy SEAL, said in an interview on Fox News with Megyn Kelly.
"And we've done it with Iran back — back a while ago, we did it during World War II with Japanese, which, call it what you will, it may be wrong—" he said as Kelly jumped in.
