The Wagner–Rogers Bill was proposed United States legislation which would have had the effect of saving the live of 20,000 Jewish children under the age of 14 by bringing them to the United States from Nazi Germany.
The bill sponsored by Senator Robert F. Wagner (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Edith Rogers (R-Mass.) It was rejected by the United States Congress in February 1939, after public opinion polls had indicated a negative attitude toward increased immigration.
