Dear Immigration Forum subscribers:

Please advise if my topic is not apropos to this group.

Earlier this week the Subcommittee on Constitution of the House
Judiciary Committee met to hear witnesses relative to H.R. 2442,  "A
bill to provide for the preparation of a Government report detailing
injustices suffered by Italian Americans during World War II, and a
formal acknowledgment of such injustices by the President." You can read
the text of the bill at the following link:
  If you want to
read the testimony given at Tuesday's hearing, check this link:

Even though German Americans suffered the same harms and worse than did
the Italian Americans at the hands of the Justice Department during
World War II, not one American of German descent was invited to sit at
the "table" during the cited hearing.

You can learn more about the internment of German Americans at URL
 and you can read my story at
