In the 1980s, Congress found that Japanese-Americans were always loyal citizens of the U.S. It even admitted the Japanese internment was an unnecessary and unfair way of solving Japanese racism. Nearly 45 years after the incident, the U.S. apologized by sending $20,000 to living individuals who were placed in internment camps. This, unfortunately, would never repay the grief and damage caused to the internees. Thus, the government finally admitted its wrongdoing to Japanese-Americans.
