Jewish Federations Applaud Senate Passage of No Social Security for Nazis Act

Washington, D.C. – Late Friday night, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the No Social Security for Nazis Act. The House of Representatives passed the same legislation earlier in the week.

“It was a crime in and of itself that Nazis who had carried out heinous crimes against humanity should get benefits at all from the US government,” said William Daroff, senior vice president for public policy and director of the Washington office of The Jewish Federations of North America, which led the advocacy efforts for the legislation.  ”We salute the Senate for joining the House in swiftly and unanimously voting to right a historic wrong, and look forward to President Obama signing the bill into law.”
