U.S. Spent Millions on Social Security Benefits for Nazi War Crime Suspects

Surviving recipients of the taxpayer-funded benefits include Jakob Denzinger, a former Auschwitz guard now living in Croatia. On Monday, White House spokesperson Eric Schultz said the White House opposes the payments, but he did not outline any plans for ending them.
