  out of sheer antisemitism. 

  Hava a look at those US reactionaries who rail against US support for Israel because they see that as a obstacle of unlimited dominiation of the world by US imperialism, trying to get out of the dilemma of riding two horses at the same time (Alison Weir, Council for the National Interest). 

  Those enemies of humanity would, on the other hand not allow immigration into the USA. They never mention the fate of the 908 Jewish refugees on the German passenger ship "St. Louis" who were not allowed to disembark in Miami. 

  See -- with all the limitations of a Wikipedia article -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_St._Louis 
See also the Evian conference of 1938 where also the USA refused to accept Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany except in far too small numbers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89vian_Conference
