Immigration officials ask Demjanjuk to submit to deportation

US immigration officials have asked former Nazi guard John Demjanjuk (pictured) to submit to deportation in order to face charges at a German court in connection with the wartime murder of thousands of Jews, his son says.

AFP - US immigration officials have asked former Nazi guard John Demjanjuk to surrender for deportation to Germany to face charges of aiding the wartime murder of thousands of Jews, his son said Friday.
   
"They have asked him to surrender," John Demjanjuk Jr. said in an e-mail.
   
"They served a letter at the house. We can't provide any date."
   
The move comes a day after a US Supreme Court Justice denied the 89-year-old former autoworker's request to block the deportation without comment.
   
The younger Demjanjuk said his family did not intend to appeal that decision because "it does not make sense to appeal to other Supreme Court judges once the judge responsible for the relevant circuit has rejected the stay."
   
The family continues to attempt to block the extradition through court filings in Berlin and Munich.
   
A spokesman for the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement would not confirm that the letter was delivered, or provide details as to when the deportation would take place.
   
"Following an order by a US Immigration Judge to remove John Demjanjuk, the US government has been working closely with the government of Germany to effectuate Demjanjuk's removal from the United States," Khaalid Walls said in a statement.
   
"US Immigration and Customs Enforcement will have no further comment until that has occurred."
