Proposals to build a fence around the Tulelake Airport are stirring opposition from Japanese-American groups and individuals who question its necessity and note it would run through the center of the World War II era Tule Lake Segregation Center.

“The proposed fence will desecrate the physical and spiritual aspects of Tule Lake,” says a petition from the San Francisco-based Tule Lake Committee, the group that sponsors the Tule Lake Pilgrimage in the Klamath Basin every other year. “This massive fence will prevent Japanese-Americans who, while attempting to mourn their own past, will instead be assaulted with the reminder of rejection, exclusion and emotional pain.”
