US immigration court ordered deportation of former Nazi supporter
Arjun Mishra at 12:00 AM ET

On February 2, 2011, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that a Detroit immigration court had ordered the removal of a Michigan resident accused of murdering Jewish people while serving as a member of Nazi-supported Ukrainian Auxiliary Police during World War II. John Kalymon, who participated in violent pogroms and personally shot Jews in Ukraine, immigrated to the US from Germany in 1949 and gained citizenship in 1955. The DOJ initiated deportation proceedings in August 2009 against Kalymon, emphasizing its commitment to denying safe haven to human rights violators. Kalymon joined Nazi prison guard John Demjanjuk as another high profile case of a former alleged Nazi and longtime US citizen being deported.
