On December 17, 1944, the government announced the end of the mass exclusion order against Japanese Americans. On December 18, the Supreme Court ruled in Ex parte Endo, that the government could no longer detain loyal citizens against their will. This case was represented by Mistuye Endo, whose brother served in the 442nd RCT. This allowed the West Coast to be opened for resettlement. The last camp, Tule Lake was closed on March 20, 1946.

It was difficult task to resettle the West Coast as Japanese American families were faced with racism and discrimination in housing and employment. Many were able only to find domestic and lower paying jobs. Despite their losses of property, businesses, homes and communities, in time, the Japanese Americans were able to rebuild their lives, take care of their aging parents and instill high educational goals for their children.
