111. The Bund was made illegal
and it was outlawed and many of the leaders arrested.

It lost it's popularity after the war started. I am not sure if it was illegal by Dec. 7, 1941 or if it was outlawed later.
I think it was before, because the US government was blatantly pro-allied even though officially neutral, just like in WWI until Pearl harbor.
I know an older man who was in the Navy in 1941, and for months before PH, his destroyer had orders to fire on any German submarine they encountered. Roosevelt was trying to provoke an incident with germany, not with japan.
