MSNBC’s Harry Smith Compares the Refugee ‘Pause’ to Japanese Internment, Refusing Jews During the Holocaust


On Saturday, MSNBC’s Harry Smith reacted to the House Republicans voting to block Syrian refugees from entering the United States, comparing it to the Japanese internment and the refusal of Jews during World War II.

“We are reminded of the ways in which fear can grip an entire nation and how acting out of fear regardless of one’s political beliefs has very real consequences. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was commander in chief in 1938, who signed the executive order to intern Japanese Americans after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was also under his watch that we denied a safe haven to Jewish refugees fleeing the horrors of Nazi violence.”
