[ 2 ] [ 3 ] The internment of Japanese Americans was applied unequally throughout the United States. All who lived on the West Coast of the United States were interned, while in Hawaii , where the 150,000-plus Japanese Americans composed over one-third of the population, an estimated 1,200 [ 4 ] to 1,800 were interned. [ 5 ] Of those interned, 62% were American citizens . [ 6 ] [ 7 ] President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the internment with Executive Order 9066 , issued February 19, 1942, which allowed local military commanders to designate "military areas" as "exclusion zones," from which "any or all persons may be excluded."
