Rockland’s Congresswoman Glad Former Nazi Deported Back to Germany

Rockland’s Congresswoman is glad to see a former Nazi has been deported from his New York home and sent back to Germany. Jakiw Palij was reportedly the last known Nazi camp guard living in the United States, right here in Queens. In a statement, Congresswoman Nita Lowey said “his presence in New York was an insult to those who fought in World War II or lost loved ones in the Holocaust. His deportation is a win for justice.” The government has been trying to deport the now 95 year-old but no country would take him in.
