Memo to John J. McCloy regarding Kibei in Hawaii
ddr-densho-67-59 (Legacy UID: denshopd-i67-00059)
Memo to John McCloy from unknown source regarding Hawaiian Kibei parolees. The author states that he had been paroling Kibei considered least dangerous and monitoring them as an alternative to transfering them to the mainland. This process only applied to a tiny population so the military would not be accused of "relaxing their vigilence." Author also suggests necessity of continuing internment hearings due to the large Issei and Nisei populations on Hawaii. Urges McCloy cite military security if habeas corpus charges are filed.
