On August 20, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement removed Jakiw Palij, 95, from the United States. He arrived in Germany on August 21, making today the culmination of a 14-year effort to remove the former Nazi camp guard. Six Nazi perpetrators under court order of deportation have died in the U.S. in this decade alone; Palij was the last one remaining in the country.
