Memo to John McCloy from Chief of Staff W.H. Wilbur on the limitations of Executive Order 9066. States that 5,000 Japanese Americans are considered disloyal and dangerous to the U.S., and that detaining these disloyals is not possible under Executive Order 9066 and if carried out would interfere with the "normal civil rights of American citizens." Suggests that another executive order be made so that any American citizen considered disloyal could be detained.
