Senator Instrumental In Bringing Soviet Jews to U.S. Passes Away

FSWC Reports:


Democrat Frank Raleigh Lautenberg of New Jersey, the oldest member of the US Senate, died Monday morning from pneumonia, at the age of 89. Lautenberg was a multimillionaire businessman born to poor Jewish immigrant parents from Poland and Russia.

In regards to the Jewish people, the highlight of his 30-year Senate service was the promotion of the law allowing the mass immigration of Jews from the former Soviet Union to the US. He was the last WWII veteran serving in the Senate.
