Trump Supporter: Japanese internment camps set ‘precedent for Muslim registry’

NEW YORK (NEWS10) – Former Navy SEAL and spokesman for the pro-Trump Great Again PAC told FOX News’ Megyn Kelly that a registry of immigrants from Muslim countries would be Constitutional.

Carl Higbie cites the Internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II as a precedent for the registry.

In an exchange on the Kelly File, Kelly told Higbie, “you can’t be citing Japanese internment camps as a precedent for anything the president-elect is going to do.”

Higbie says he isn’t proposing internment camps for Muslims, but the president needs to protect America first and supports the registry.

Watch the full discussion:

The Trump Administration is considering a measure to reinstate the registry of immigrants and visitors who enter the United States on visas from countries where extremist organizations are active.
