Our parks have the power to fill in the gaps of our history that are deliberately or carelessly forgotten. What happened to the people incarcerated at Amache is an American story that must not be forgotten. It's a story of failure by the U.S. government to protect its own citizens. And it's a story that remains relevant to how America treats its immigrant communities.
“We urge our Congressional leadership and the National Park Service to see this park designation through. The time is not only right, it is long overdue.” – Amache Survivor Bob Fuchigami
