CLEVELAND (AP) – The nation’s chief immigration judge is getting closer to deciding what to do about an Ohio man stripped of his citizenship amid accusations he was a Nazi concentration camp guard. John Demjanjuk (dem-YAHN’-yuk) argues that he shouldn’t be deported because he could be tortured in his native Ukraine. There’s a hearing in Demjanjuk’s case today in Cleveland.
Demjanjuk is 85. The former auto worker lives a secluded life in a Cleveland suburb and is said to be in poor health. -30-
