Government officials briefed reporters on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal operations deportation of Jakiw Palij to Düsseldorf, Germany. Jawik Palij was a former Nazi SS labor camp guard in German-occupied Poland. He unlawfully immigrated to the United States in 1949, and naturalized to United States citizenship in 1957, telling immigration officials at that time his wartime activities included working on a farm and in a factory. In a comprehensive Justice Department investigation and civil prosecution, Palij was ordered de-naturalized by a federal judge in 2003, and ordered deported by an immigration judge in 2004. His appeal on that matter was denied in 2005. close
