Holtzman Bill on Nazi Criminals
Passes House, Awaits Senate

Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman
(D-N.Y.) expressed the hope
that the Senate would soon
adopt a bill, similar to one
introduced by her in the
House and adopted last
week by voice vote, to
authorize the deportation
and exclusion from the-
United States of Nazi war
The Holtzman bill would
close a loophole in U.S. im-
migration law which has
allowed war criminals to
enter and live in this coun-
try freely. She said that
since 1952, when the pre-
sent federal immigration
law was adopted, there has
been no provision in the
laws to keep out of the
United States or to deport
those who have persecuted
others for racial, religious
or other reasons.
As a result, she said, a
number of persons against
whom the Immigthtion and
Yaturalization Service
(INS) "has solid evidence of
war crimes committed
under the Nazis cannot be.
She said her bill would
correct this problem by.
giving Immigration and
Naturalization Service
officials "direct legisla-
tive authority" to act
against Nazi war crimi-
nals. The_ measure pro-
vides for exclusion or de-
portation from this coun-

try any alien who, under
the Nazis, "ordered, in-
cited, assisted, or other-
wise participated in the
persecution of any per-
son because of race, reli-
gion, national origin or
political opinion."
At present, suspected war
criminals who entered the
United States under the
Displaced Persons Act can
be denaturalized if they
have become citizens, or de-
ported if they are still
aliens, if the INS can prove
they lied about their Nazi
records in applying for ad-
Appeals from INS rulings
can extend the deportation
or denaturalization hear-
ings for extended periods. In
denaturalization rulings,
the federal government
must then start deportation
proceedings, which are also
subject to lengthy delays.
Miss Holtzman said her
bill would give the INS "di-

Seeing the lights -on, waiting

And when you're at

Jerusalem suburb of Beit
Hanina Sunday. Most of the
participants are well known
supporters of the PLO, ex-
cept for Sheik Hilmi Al
Mohtassib, head of the Sup-
reme Moslem Council in
East Jerusalem, a veteran
supporter of King Hussein.
Most of the West Bank
mayors attended the meet-

absence was outstanding
was Elias Freij, the mayor
of Bethlehem, known as a
pro-Jordanian and anti-

agreements altogether,
especially those provid-

They demanded that Is-
rael commit herself for a

Most of the demonstrators
were high school students.
No arrests were made.
In the meantime, West

intensified their behind the

current activity against the
