Gordon Hirabayashi Challenged WWII Interment

A World War II opponent of Japanese-American interment, Gordon Hirabayashi died Monday in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Hirabayashi, who was a U.S. citizen, was imprisoned after refusing to report to an internment camp after President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered Japanese Americans to relocate following the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. Alex Kekauoha reports.
