"WRA DIRECTOR CASTIGATES FOUR GROUPS OPPOSING RETURN OF NISEI EVACUEES TO WEST COAST"
 
CONTEXT
"In addition to the traditional racist organizations like the American Legion and The Native Sons of the Golden West, who had been agitating against the west-coast Japanese for decades, new groups had sprung up during the war, with the specific purpose of preventing anyone of Japanese descent from returning to the coast -- groups like No Japs Incorporated in San Diego, The Home Front Commandoes in Sacramento, and The Pacific Coast Japanese Problem League in Los Angeles. Also, some growers' associations, threatened by the return of interned farmers, had been using the war as a way to foment hostile feelings in the major farming areas."
