Who Were Those Japanese-Peruvians During World War II?

From Wikipedia.

At the beginning of World War II, there were some 26,000 people of Japanese descent living in Peru.  The U.S. State Department reached an agreement with Peru and 1,779 of these people were transferred to the United States for incarceration in internment camps.

I sure didn't know about these people.
