An immigration judge has ordered the deportation of an 81-year-old man who admittedly served as an elite SS Death's Head guard during World War II Nazi operations, the US Justice Department announced.
Under the order issued Wednesday by Immigration Judge Jennie Giambastiani in Chicago, Josias Kumpf of Racine, Wisconsin, could be removed to either Serbia, Austria or Germany. The Justice Department said in a news release Thursday that Kumpf chose Germany.
Peter Rogers, a Pittsburgh lawyer representing Kumpf, said he would appeal the ruling within 30 days as required.
