AP: Expelled Nazis are still getting social securityBreaking News
[Jakob] Denzinger, 90, is among dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals and SS guards who collected millions of dollars in Social Security payments after being forced out of the United States, an Associated Press investigation found.
In response to AP's findings, a White House spokesman said Monday that Nazi suspects should not be getting the benefits. But the spokesman, Eric Schultz, did not say whether or how the White House might end the payments.
The payments flowed through a legal loophole that has given the U.S. Justice Department leverage to persuade Nazi suspects to leave. If they agreed to go, or simply fled before deportation, they could keep their Social Security, according to interviews and internal government records.
