AFP - Suspected Nazi guard John Demjanjuk will appeal an immigration board's Friday decision to allow his deportation to Germany to face charges of assisting in the murders of thousands of Jews, his son told AFP.
"We will continue to do everything possible to stop this inhumane action," John Demjanjuk Jr. said in a statement.
"Due to his serious medical conditions, if he were to survive a deportation, there is zero chance he will be capable of enduring any legal process in Germany."
The younger Demjanjuk said his family intends to appeal a decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals to reject their latest motion to stay deportation to the federal court's Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Demjanjuk's family has also filed motions in Germany requesting that the government reconsider its extradition request.
