Inouye, and I had the honor of being given a tour by Mayor Bloomberg and 9/11 museum Director Alice Greenwald of the memorial at Ground Zero and the ongoing construction below ground of the future museum.

After that dark day, the government of the United States designated all Japanese-Americans to be "4C," enemy aliens, because of their Japanese ancestry. More.
