Immigration Bill Could Help Nazis

Yes, really.

The Senate immigration bill could mean reparations for German Nazis. No, I’m not making this up. Look at Title IX, the “Study of War Time Treatment of Certain People,” also cited as the “Wartime Treatment Study Act,” Sections 901-916, pages 409-415 available through the Heritage Foundation.

Let me offer some background: When fascist Germany and Italy declared war on the United States two days after the Pearl Harbor attack, German and Italian citizens living in the United States became enemy aliens. Likewise, American citizens living in Germany and Italy became enemy aliens. The Americans and the two Axis powers repatriated and exchanged many of each other’s citizens, but some enemy aliens were interned in all three countries. In the United States, the vast majority of Italian and German citizens were not interned.

The Senate immigration bill would establishes a Commission on Wartime Treatment of European Americans to investigate U.S. policies that the bill describes as “devastating to the Italian American and German American communities.”

Section 903 declares that, the “term German Americans” includes “resident aliens of German ancestry” who numbered about 300,000 in total. The same definition is used for the term Italian American.

Let us say there was a man named Helmut Goering, nephew of Herman, and let’s also imagine Helmut was a German citizen and fervent member of the Nazi party, but also a legal resident alien working in the United States in December, 1941. According to the immigration bill’s sponsors, Herr Goering is a “German American” who, apparently, has suffered “discrimination.”

Here's the full text of the bill. Scroll down to Title IX.

Also stuck in the bill is Section 713, which would "award scholarships to eligible individuals to enable such individuals to pursue associate, undergraduate, or graduate level degrees in mathematics, engineering, health care, or computer science."

And in Section 616, this gem:

(b) Notwithstanding any provision of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1001 et seq.), with respect to assistance provided under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1070 et seq.), an alien who adjusts status to that of a lawful permanent resident under this title, or who is a probationary Z or Z nonimmigrant under this title and who meets the eligibility criteria set forth in section 614(a)(1)(A), (B), and (F), shall be eligible for the following assistance under such title IV:

(1) Student loans under parts B, D, and E of such title IV (20 U.S.C. 1071 et seq., 1087a et seq., 1087aa et seq.), subject to the requirements of such parts.

(2) Federal work-study programs under part C of such title IV (42 U.S.C. 2751 et seq.), subject to the requirements of such part.

(3) Services under such title IV (20 U.S.C. 1070 et seq.), subject to the requirements for such services.

So an illegal alien here with provisional status could get a piece of the rapidly-shrinking student loan and workstudy pie.

So scholarships and financial aid for illegal immigrants and a "path to reparations" for former Nazis. They weren't kidding when they called this bill "comprehensive," where they?
