You win, the Courts back you up. :) "
Years after the Second World War, the US Supreme court ruled Roosevelt's actions regarding 100,000+ Japanese Americans to have been unlawful, and Congress awarded them official apologies along with monetary reparations.
By stark contrast, no court ever ruled against Lincoln's Civil War actions, and Congress never paid reparations, except to Southern Unionists who lost property defending the Union.
DiogenesLamp: "Wasn't he thinking of arresting Justice Taney?"
Chief Justice Taney was a tool of the Slave Power, chief author of the Supreme Court's Dred Scott decision, and deeply opposed to "Black Republicans" like "Ape" Lincoln.
But in the 1860s, Taney no longer spoke for a majority of the Court.
Reports of Taney's arrest were greatly exaggerated.
