DescriptionIt took until 1958 for the federal courts to reach a decision in Takeda's case. A letter from Collins notes that in the end, the judge ruled that Takeda's renunciation of his citizenship was never valid, and "in consequence, you always have been and still are a U.S. citizen." These words may have been little comfort for Takeda, who was initially incarcerated as a native-born citizen, without any formal charges being brought against him.
