    The Japanese were moved from the West Coast because Japan had just attacked Pearl Harbor; the US had just gone to war with Japan and Japanese Americans were interned because the government overreacted and acted out of fear that Japanese Americans would help the enemy.

    In Korematsu v. United States, the Supreme Court gave the US government the right to violate the rights of Americans.
