In “Echoes From the Past: The Japanese Incarceration and Today’s Executive Orders,” Takano  discussed the relevance of the history of Japanese-American incarceration to today's political climate, including the Muslim ban, immigration and the recent decision to rescind DACA, as well as his personal experience.
