Jim Tsugawa is a native Oregonian of Japanese descent who was interned during World War 2 in an internment camp with his family.  He went on to become a dentist and settle in Portland.  In February and March of 2009, local immigrants or descendants of local immigrants met with us at the Cedar Mill Community Library to discuss what it is like to be an immigrant in Oregon.  We recorded these discussions and have posted them for the public to listen to.
