An Apology From California to the Japanese American Community 78 Years Later

Actor George Takei says he welcomes California's long overdue decision to apologize for the internment of Japanese Americans during WW2.

Takei, who's now 82, was five when his family was sent to a camp in California, one of ten that held 120-thousand Americans of Japanese descent.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order in 1942 that led to the incarcerations.

This Thursday a resolution by Democratic Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi is expected to pass the Legislature with bipartisan support.
