George Takei: Trump administration breaking up families at U.S. border worse than Japanese-American internment camps

The Trump administration’s policy to break up families at the U.S. border has drawn a scathing reaction from Star Trek icon George Takei who as a child was sent to a Japanese-American internment camp during World War II.

Here is an excerpt from an op-ed Takei wrote for Foreign Policy.

“At least during the internment of Japanese-Americans, I and other children were not stripped from our parents,” Takei said. “We were not pulled screaming from our mothers’ arms. We were not left to change the diapers of younger children by ourselves.”

“I cannot for a moment imagine what my childhood would have been like had I been thrown into a camp without my parents,” Takei added. “That this is happening today fills me with both rage and grief: rage toward a failed political leadership who appear to have lost even their most basic humanity, and a profound grief for the families affected.”
