Trump ally says Japanese internment camps 'precedent' for Muslim registry

He voices these concerns in a somber new Washington Post editorial, prompted in large part by a startling Fox News interview between Megyn Kelly and pro-Trump spokesman Carl Higbie.

"Steve Bannon has exceled in every single role he has held dating back to his service in the US Navy", Higbie said in a statement. "You know better than to suggest that". "That's the kind of stuff that gets people scared, Carl". "I'm just saying, there's a precedent for and I am not saying I agree".

Higbie appeared on Fox News' "The Kelly File" Wednesday to discuss the matter, following an interview with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

"The Japanese-American internment was an egregious violation of our national values and principles, a awful event for which Congress apologized in 1988", Takei said in a statement released Thursday.

The National Security Entry-Exit Registration System required people from "higher risk" countries to undergo interrogations and finger-printing. This is a continuation of a policy Trump began during his campaign for the presidency, when he called for a ban on all Muslims entering the country. "No one should go through what my family and 120,000 innocent people suffered regardless of their race or religion or any other way they would choose to try and divide us", Honda went on to say.

Higbie's overall argument is correct.

It is Takei's contention that "constitutional rights and protections" take precedence over national security.

"Don't be afraid", Donald Trump said in response.

Trump, who has called for a "complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States and then later advocated for "extreme vetting" of Muslim immigrants, has himself said that he might have backed internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

"We were American citizens, and yet, because we looked like the enemy, we were treated like the enemy and imprisoned".

While Trump himself hasn't said anything about internment camps or a Muslim registry in recent weeks, those fears weren't sparked by comments from random Trump surrogates.
