The Western Defense Command was charged with protecting the Pacific Coast against attack and in the weeks that followed, Lieutenant General John L. DeWitt recommended the evacuation of Japanese Americans to the interior of the country as a military necessity, a policy Attorney General Francis Biddle would soon reluctantly support.
