Description:
Dorothy Thompson, newspaper columnist, urging Rep. Edith Nourse Rogers, a member of the Joint Congressional Committee on Immigration to allow the immigration of Austrian and German victims of Nazi "wrath" to America. This was in 1939, before the U.S. entered World War II. I can find no reference to this passing. Immigration laws were not changed in the U.S. at this time.

Dorothy Thompson appeared before the Joint Congressional Committee on Immigration supporting a pending bill which would allow selected refugee children to live and grow up in American families.
