About "The Lim Report"
I wrote in 1990 about how the Japanese American Citizens League commissioned the report, then tried to bury it when they saw the direction it was taking ("Report Says Wartime JACL Leaders Collaborated").
This Web site has been one of the two places on the Internet where you can download an uncensored copy of the Research Report prepared for the Presidential Select Committee on JACL Resolution #7, submitted in 1990 by Deborah K. Lim. Now you can obtain in book form, free of charge, the report that details the JACL's role of cooperation and collaboration with government exclusion orders in 1942. It's all somewhat mysterious, but the Lim Report has been self-published with the author's permission. No publisher is named anywhere, but thanks to whoever was responsible for alerting readers to the online version here at Resisters.com. William Hohri outlines the history of this book in his Rambler's Nemesis column of August 28 in the Rafu Shimpo newspaper.

the question of its wartime collaboration with incarceration, even as the group
was apologizing to Emi and others for its suppression of wartime resistance.
