Flyers about Muslim internment camps were posted throughout campus at the University of California-San Diego on Wednesday, NBC San Diego reported.
“All Muslim persons, both alien and non-alien, will be evacuated from the above designated area by 12:00 o'clock noon Wednesday, April 8, 2017,” the flyer, which includes multiple misspellings and grammatical errors, reads.
Titled “INSTRUCTIONS TO ALL PERSONS OF ISLAMIC BELIEF,” the flyer read ordered the evacuation of Muslims from the San Diego area.
The flyers are a near-replica of posters that appeared after the bombing of Pearl Harbor when FDR signed an executive order to round up Japanese-Americans and force them into internment camps.
“No Muslim person will be permitted to enter or leave the above described area after 8:00 a.m., Thursday, April 2, 2017, without obtaining special permission from the Provost Marshal at the Civil Control Station.”
