I would submit that we have no way of knowing whether the WWII internment camps were of any benefit to us. How would one know what someone might have done had they not been locked up?

To start with, the greater number of Japanese Americans lived in Hawaii, and nothing happened there at all. Further, no one living East of the Mississippi river was locked up, and in those days that's where all the stuff was someone could "happen" with, eh!
I think the answer may be found in the forced tax sales where major Democratic party donors were allowed to cherry pick prime properties formerly owned by Japanese Americans held in the camps.
