While segregated at Tule Lake, detainees were further subjected to pro-Japanese gangs and an atmosphere of intimidation, leading many to renounce their American citizenship. Whether held in Department of Justice, Army camps, or WRA camps on the mainland or the internment camps (Sand Island and then Honouliuli) run by the Army in Hawai`i, most of the detainees were not released until the war was over. Court cases for those trying to regain their American citizenship after renunciation dragged on for more than two decades.
