Demjanjuk Ordered Deported

A United States immigration judge ordered John Demjanjuk deported to his native Ukraine. Demjanjuk, 85, has been fighting for three decades to stay in the U.S. During the long legal battle, he was suspected for a time of being a notorious concentration camp card known as “Ivan the Terrible.” The Israeli Supreme Court found that he was not Ivan, but subsequent investigations found that he was a Nazi guard at various camps and a judge ruled in 2002 that he should be stripped of his citizenship.
