Man Loses Appeal Of Deportation Linked To WWII

TROY (AP) – A federal appeals court won’t overturn a decision that orders the deportation of a Michigan man accused of shooting Jews during World War II.

John Kalymon of Troy lost his naturalized citizenship after a trial in 2007. The appeals court said Friday there’s nothing wrong with using evidence from that case to justify the retired engineer’s deportation in separate hearings.

An immigration judge ordered his removal in 2011, a decision that was affirmed by the Board of Immigration Appeals. The 91-year-old Kalymon is in poor health and has remained in Michigan during the appeals.

In his 20s, Kalymon served in the Nazi-sponsored Ukrainian Auxiliary Police in Lviv, which once was part of Poland. He denies shooting Jews. His attorney says an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is possible.
