The Holocaust and the Unites States , Part 2
9/22/2022 6:58:16 AM
I watched another 2 hours of the The Holocaust and the United States. A few things stuck out.

1, I did not know that FDR by executive order, allowed all those from Germany and Austria with visas to remain in the US after The Night of the Broken Glass.

2. It was made apparent that only the Congress could change the immigration laws of the United States. FDR could not change them by Executive Order.

3. While the citizens of the US were concerned about what was happening in Germany, 7 out of 10 Americans did not want more Jews coming to the United States. They feared that the Jews would take jobs away from Americans.
