(CNN)Actor George Takei argued that “in one core, scary method,” the household separations taking place at the Vereinigte Staaten’ southern border are “even worse” than the Japanese-American internment camps throughout World War II.
“At least throughout the internment, my moms and dads had the ability to position themselves in between the scary of exactly what we were dealing with and my own childish understanding of our situations,” Takei composed, explaining the methods his household safeguarded him from “the grim truth” of their situations.
“At least throughout the internment, we stayed a household, and I credit that alone for keeping the scars of our unfair jail time from deepening on my soul,” he continued. “I can not for a minute picture exactly what my youth would have resembled had I been tossed into a camp without my moms and dads. That this is occurring today fills me with both rage and sorrow: rage towards a stopped working political management who appear to have actually lost even their a lot of fundamental mankind, and an extensive sorrow for the households impacted.”
