The poster below is called "Instructions to all persons of Japanese Ancestry". It shows the rules that Japanese Americans must obey. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order on February 19, 1942, that allowed people to set up curfews against Japanese Americans.

This picture shows that Japanese Americans were prohibited from entering some areas. Most Japanese Americans lived on the West Coast, cities like San Francisco. They couldn't walk outside after dark. Most curfews were unconstitutional. The constitution states that "all men were created equally and have the same rights. The Japanese were treated very badly.
