Anti-immigrant sentiment arose again in state politics in the 1920s when California turned attention to Japanese exclusion. The files of the Los Angeles Times offer a glimpse into the “spirit” of Californians determined to protect “white” state values against the Japanese and to attract allies in that effort. Lest the point be lost, the Editorial Board expressed itself in all caps:

California was once a bastion of xenophobia and racism. If we can change, so can the rest of the country - LA Times

LA Times: just STOP it, please.

Back in the day; the problem was LEGAL aliens NOT being accepted in Calif, in 2017 the problem is ILLEGAL aliens being allowed to stay.

We were also involved in World War II against the Japanese, as well as others.

It's 2017, fully 31 years after Reagan's / Kennedy's amnesty that was never ever, ever going to happen again.

Let's start with enforcing our laws already on the books, eh?

So, in their "pc" textbooks, it said that the Japanese were illegal aliens? I'm missing something here. Did they give up comparing it to blacks and slavery?

ILLEGAL. I am guessing many of these illegal aliens had problems in their own country so just brought them here. Comparing the Japanese citizens and/or legal immigrants with illegal aliens =

Wow. Laughable. I bet the author is an anchor baby and has never lived outside of California. I guess every nation on earth is xenophobic and racist for regulating immigration.

No, just us. The belief is that everyone else is allowed to control their borders because, well because, they shouldn't have to accept just anybody.

Growing up, I used to laugh at my brother and sister who were both born in California. Even back then as a little kid, I would never own up to being a "Californian" even though my parents moved from Ithaca, NY to Davis, CA when I was seven months old.

Just look at present day California. Now I have reason to be embarrassed!
