United States (323 U.S. 214), which upheld the exclusion order that led to the internment of Japanese-American citizens on the West Coast during World War II as threats to national security. Decided on the same day as the Korematsu case, but opposed to it in most respects, Ex Parte Endo, or Ex Parte Mitsuye Endo, (323 U.S. 283) held that the U.S. Government could not detain a citizen who was "concededly loyal" to the United States. The Endo decision effectively voided Korematsu. In response to both decisions, the Roosevelt administration rescinded its exclusion orders and allowed internees to return to the West Coast.
