Deportation Ordered For WWII Crime

DETROIT (WWJ) A Detroit immigration judge 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.

Judge Elizabeth Hacker issued a written decision Monday in John Kalymon’s case.

Kalymon served in the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police.

The U.S. Justice Department says the man claimed to have shot and killed a Jew in 1942, but later retracted the claim.

Kalymon’s U.S. citizenship was stripped in 2007.  His lawyer says an appeal “will be likely.”
