Trump supporter cites Japanese internment to justify Muslim registry

Former Navy SEAL and Trump supporter Carl Higbie spoke to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly about Trump’s plans to implement a registry of Muslim immigrants.

Higbie then invoked Japanese internment as a precedent that could justify Trump’s Muslim plan.

Said Higbie: “We did it during World War II with Japanese, which, call it what you will, maybe wrong.”

Maybe?

Higbie went on to say he wasn’t proposing internment camps, but there is precedent for it, he said, even though he’s not saying he agrees with it.

Megyn Kelly pushed back and told him you can’t cite Japanese internment camps as precedent for anything the president-elect is going to do.
