“Nazi spy caught posing as Jewish refugee”(JAT). This event followed the U.S entering the war. This stop all jews coming to the U.S.
This is a big problem for the jews trying to leave but the Nazi spy did not care. The conflict is that there are many spies trying to get to the U.S so the compromise is to stop all immigration to protect the nation The use of spying can be traced back to the early US.George Washington himself used spies during the Revolutionary War.
“The Culper Spy Ring was an American spy network operating during the War of American Independence that provided George Washington with information on British troop movements.”(Williams, Victoria) But during modern times the British/allies used double crossing agents and codebreakers to get info from their enemies. The US was so worried about this that the closed their borders to all refugees.
But even though the US did this they let one in who was trying to steal industrial secrets for the Axis powers but was later killed in jail. The conflict is the Jews could not come to the u.s. because of the threat of spies.
Do to the fact that spies are everywhere the U.S refuse to let the jews in. But still the Jews load on to a boat and sail to the U.S were “The U.S. Government Turned Away Thousands of Jewish Refugees, Fearing That They Were Nazi Spies”(Gross, Daniel). The fact is that the jews ,U.
S, and the Nazis were all responsible for this conflict. But the U.S are the ones responsible for the compromise. Annotated bibliography Primary sources JAT. “Nazi spy.” JTA DAILY NEWS BULLETIN, 10 July 1942, p. 4, pdfs.
