Caption found with the image reads, "After several weeks of action in the U.S. District Court, and an appeal to the Circuit Court of Appeals and to the Supreme Court, an order was obtained for removal of the Indonesians from the immigration detention quarters, San Francisco, to the immigration Detention Facility at Crystal City, Texas. Here the Indonesians are on the ground floor awaiting arrival of buses to take them to the Southern Pacific railroad where they boarded cars and were taken, under guard, to Crystal City. They are still held in Crystal City (Jan.10.1947) [sic] awaiting final outcome of the appeal to the Supreme Court, whereby they seek to kill the immigration order of deposition, so that they may remain in the United States." The image shows a packed room full of men in suits. See this object in the California State Universities Japanese American Digitization project site: ind_01_01_006
