I agree its not quite on the same scale as the detention of Japanese derived
after Pearl Harbour, but it may be early days yet. It may be 1% of the whole
group but it must be a larger proportion of the "unnaturalised" (read
indoctrinated) who are being discriminated against.

It's not clear why they are being detained either but it does mention that
they were arrested *after* attempting to comply with the new registration
