Suspected Nazis Expelled from U.S. Collected Social Security

Suspected Nazi war criminals and SS guards collected millions of dollars of U.S. Social Security benefits after they were forced to leave the U.S., an Associated Press investigation found, NBC News reported. The payments, underwritten by American taxpayers, were released through a legal loophole that gave the Justice Department leverage to persuade Nazi suspects to leave the country. A Justice Department spokesman denied the report in an emailed statement, and the Social Security Administration refused the AP’s request for a number of Nazi suspects who received benefits and the amount of those payments.
