Why is Americans imprisoning Japanese immigrants after attack on Pearl Harbor a problem?

Imprisoning immigrants would not necessarily be a problem as they could likely be spies or saboteurs loyal to the Japanese Empire.The thing that was the problem was that ALL persons of Japanese ancestry living in US territory (even those whose parents, grandparents, and great grandparents had been born in the US and knew nothing of life in Japan) were imprisoned!This was a direct violation of the civil rights of millions of loyal US citizens and illegal confiscation of their private property and assets. US citizens whose only "crime" was being the wrong race.However, this illegal and unjust imprisonment may have saved the lives of many persons of Japanese ancestry because of the level of racism in the US at that time and the chance that some "white patriots" might have chosen to fight the war against Japan in their own backyard and with baseball bats and knives!

Why did the Japanese put so much effort into the battle in the Philippine sea?

It was both the Japanese and us as the United States that put so much effort into the battle of Philippine Sea.

We basically exterminated them and put their entire offensive operation out of business.
