The US government has confirmed it is deporting a 94-year-old German ex-Nazi who has been in the United States for decades.
An immigration judge ordered Friedrich Karl Berger’s deportation on February 28 after a two-day trial in Memphis, authorities said.
It’s unclear when he will be removed.
Mr Berger, who has been living in the US since 1959, has 30 days to appeal the ruling.
The government says Mr Berger was an armed guard at a concentration camp near Meppen, Germany, in 1945.
The immigration judge found that the prisoners Berger guarded were held in atrocious conditions and were exploited for forced labor.
Mr Berger also allegedly guarded prisoners during a forced evacuation to a main camp which took two weeks and left 70 people dead as they travelled in inhumane conditions, according to a statement by the government.
