No pink uniforms that would have been in violation of the conventions I believe. However at least some of the POW's sent to the US lived in tents. I was reading an article about it yesterday. When the camps were first being established there were more POW's than barracks for the and to conform to the conventions their guards also lived in tents until the barracks were complete.L.

There were a few. It's not clear how many and technically of course they weren't "illegal aliens" they were escpaded POW's unless they returned here illegally after being repatriated.I just wonder how many German POWs in America ended up being illegal aliens in the States after the war.
So someone that hasn't been convicted of a crime is forced to cut their hair and their ability to communicate is severlly curtailed?L. Kafka wrote:.... I like the Japanese approach to inmates where talking is restricted and that they must cut their hair very short.
That would very much depend on where, for how long, and how well equipped with cloths and sleeping gear would it not? People camp out for extended periods without heating.The idea of unheated cells, something that Amnesty International has criticized, is not something I would endorse.
