An immigration judge in Detroit has ordered the deportation of an 88-year-old retired auto engineer accused of killing a Jew while serving with a Nazi-controlled police force during World War II.
He served in the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police. The U.S. Justice Department says Kalymon claimed to have shot and killed a Jew in 1942 when Jews were being removed from what is now Lviv, Ukraine.
Kalymon was stripped of his U.S. citizenship in 2007.
Assistant Attorney General Breuer said in a statement obtained by Fox News. "Neither he nor other human rights violators should be allowed to gain sanctuary in this country. The decision granting Mr. Kalymon's removal, and the more than 100 other cases won by the Justice Department against Nazi perpetrators, reflect our steadfast commitment to pursuing justice on behalf of the victims of crimes against humanity across the globe."

Hypocrisy? Very possible.
Still, he's a nazi-bastard and deserves whatever misery finds him.

Evidence at the trial included an Aug. 14, 1942 report, handwritten by Kalymon, in which he informed supervisors that he personally killed one Jew and wounded another that day, authorities say.
He says he concealed his service in the Ukrainian police force on applications for an immigration visa to avoid being sent to the Soviet Union.
The immigration judge, who authored the removal order on Jan. 31, considered surviving records from the Ukrainian police to establish that Kalymon's duties included helping the Germans round up Jews and send them to death camps.
An immigration judge cast doubt on mental-health problems claimed by an 89-year-old Michigan man who has been ordered deported for his service in a Nazi-controlled police force during World War II.
Operation Keelhaul was carried out in Northern Italy by British and American forces to repatriate Soviet Armed Forces POWs of the Nazis to the Soviet Union between August 14, 1946 and May 9, 1947. The term has been later applied - specifically after the publication of Julius Epstein's eponymous book - to other Allied acts of often forced repatriation of former residents of the USSR after the ending of World War II that sealed the fate of millions of post-war refugees fleeing eastern Europe.
Lying on the immigration document, he should have never been admitted to the country to beging with.
Experiments led by Solomon Asch of Swarthmore College asked groups of students to participate in a "vision test." In reality, all but one of the participants were confederates of the experimenter, and the study was really about how the remaining student would react to the confederates' behavior.
In the basic Asch paradigm, the participants — the real subjects and the confederates — were all seated in a classroom. They were asked a variety of questions about the lines such as how long is A, compare the length of A to an everyday object, which line was longer than the other, which lines were the same length, etc. The group was told to announce their answers to each question out loud. The confederates always provided their answers before the study participant, and always gave the same answer as each other. They answered a few questions correctly but eventually began providing incorrect responses.
In a control group, with no pressure to conform to an erroneous view, only one subject out of 35 ever gave an incorrect answer. Solomon Asch hypothesized that the majority of people would not conform to something obviously wrong; however, when surrounded by individuals all voicing an incorrect answer, participants provided incorrect responses on a high proportion of the questions (32%). Seventy-five percent of the participants gave an incorrect answer to at least one question.
