Memo from the office of John J. McCloy to an unknown recipient regarding transfer of Hawaiian Kibei to Tule Lake. Author states that Kibei cannot be transferred due to lack of facilities and the fear that the Kibei will add to a growing militant section of internees. This would be problematic because the Japanese military might punish the American POWs in retaliation. Also suggests that legal basis is stronger if Kibei are kept in Hawaii. Advises the parole of a limited number of Kibei as an alternative.
