Immigration Officials Deny Deportation Request by Ex-Nazi Death Camp Guard

Breaking News

An immigration appeals board has denied an emergency stay of deportation requested by John Demjanjuk, who faces charges in Germany that he served as a Nazi death camp guard during World War II.

The 89-year-old suburban Cleveland man had filed a motion to the board in Falls Church, Va., saying he is in poor health and that being forced to travel to Germany would amount to torture.

The board rejected that argument Friday. Demjanjuk's son, John Demjanjuk Jr., said his father would immediately appeal to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati.
