I am a gentile who never understood the slavish devotion of a people to the party of a president (Roosevelt) who in 1937 turned back 937 Jews on the ship MS St Louis who got within view of the Statue of Liberty before Roosevelt sent them back to face the horrible fate Hitler had in store for them. Democratic Senator Robert F. Wagner and Massachusetts Republican Representative Edith Nourse Rogers introduced the Wagner-Rogers bill that would open our doors to 20,000 German-Jewish children. A cousin of Roosevelt's, Laura Delano Houghteling said that the problem with letting 20,000 ugly (Jewish) children into the country is that they would grow up to be 20,000 ugly Jewish adults.
