Chico, Calif. -- In the past several weeks, news coverage has been broadcasting images from the U.S./Mexico border, of illegal immigrants being held by federal authorities.

Action News Now Morning Anchor Julia Yarbough wondered how similar current events might be to a disturbing moment in American history; that is the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

A museum exhibit at Chico State University could not be timelier.

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, ruled to uphold the President’s travel ban against individuals from several predominantly Muslim nations.

Justices also overturned a 1944 Supreme Court decision which *upheld* the forcible internment of Japanese-Americans.

The exhibit *Imprisoned at Home* features photos, videos and personal effects which highlight personal stories of those who lived that history.

Museum curator Adrienne Scott says the exhibit is compelling and allows those who have had the history enacted on them to have a voice.

At the time, World War II was raging. Propaganda and messages of hate and anger ran high against Japan.

In 1942, President Roosevelt issued an executive order effectively giving the military permission to remove all people of Japanese descent from the West coast.

Displaced from their homes and imprisoned in internment camps, the military transported the U.S. citizens, many from right here in the North State, to be held at the maximum security Tule Lake Segregation Center. It was one of many internment camps in the western United States.

Curator Scott says the museum exhibit helps to answer difficult questions, such as how do we speak about things that are difficult or even unspeakable and hear each other? She says the exhibit is not just telling a truth, but helping people to listen.

The exhibit, Imprisoned at Home is on display at the Valene L. Smith Museum at Chico State University until august 2nd, 2018.

Be sure to also view a one-on-one interview with a man who is now sharing his personal story of being held in an internment camp.

The weather over northern California has finally calmed substantially. Although it would be fantastic to have valley rain and mountain snow, we have some exceptional weather ahead for the end of October and beginning of November.
