Answer the following questions:
1. How well does this source contribute to your information that would support your thesis/topic? Are there aspects of your thesis that this source does not cover? Explain.
This video has explanation of the constitution itself and applying it to the Internment camps and proving that the rights were dismissed when they put U.S citizens in camps. This source is very relevant to my topic and will help me get my point across with the information I found in it.
2. How does this source relate to other works you are reading?
It relates to my other sources because they talk about how the justification of the U.S. actions to put the Japanese Americans into Internment camps without further knowledge of each suspific person and their ties with their homeland.
3. Does what the author has to say about your topic seem logical? Explain. Trustworthy? (What kind of expertise does the writer have? Potential bias? What kind of evidence does the author use?)
Yes, very logical because it has interviews with internees, a video of Bill Clinton giving the speech about one of the survivors who fought for the rights he was fighting for, for all those years. The author uses his uncle as evidence and uses him to find out what happened in the camps/ the process of interning.
4. How/why/when was this article/book/website/video produced and how does that affect its trustworthiness?
This video was posted on May 04, 2012 by and interested grandson of a former internee, Matthew Shimura. Just because this is created by a young man doesn’t mean that his information is false. He talked to an internee’s daughter and looked for information by going to the bases and talking to people who know a lot. So I believe that I can trust this video.

By 1944, one of the most interesting parts of this is that it was also apparent that there had never been (abases?) for holding these people.
