Chicago Man Fights Deportation Over Government Claims That He Helped Nazis Kill Jews

Breaking News

Seven decades was not enough time to separate an 88-year-old Chicago man from his past.

The Justice Department announced Thursday plans to deport Osyp "Joe" Firishchak, who they claim lied about his role in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II to win passage to the United States.

The government claims Firishchak was a member of the Nazi-controlled Ukrainian Auxiliary Police, which helped kill 100,000 people in a Jewish ghetto. It also claims Firishchak guarded posts so Jewish prisoners couldn't escape.
