Jakiw Palij is a convicted Nazi war-criminal who helped train the force charged with murdering every Jew in Poland, guarded the Trawniki forced labor camp -- where 6,000 prisoners were murdered in a single day -- and was present at the "liquidation" of the Warsaw Ghetto. He's lived in the USA since 1949, when he entered the country and lied about his Nazi past.
That lie was the basis of a 2004 immigration proceeding that resulted in his being stripped of US citizenship; the same judge issued a deportation order for Palij. But at age 94, Palij remains in the USA, living in his home in Jackson Heights, Queens. ICE has failed to deport him because, they say, Ukraine, Poland and Germany have all refused to take him in, and it's likely he will live out the rest of his days in the USA.
