U.S. to deport former Nazi concentration camp guard. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has affirmed an order directing the deportation to Croatia of Anton Tittjung, a retired stone worker living in Kewaunee, Wisconsin. The Office of Special Investigations (OSI) of the Department of Justice uncovered evidence in captured Nazi documents of Tittjung's showing membership in the Nazi SS and his service as a concentration camp guard. The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) ordered Tittjung's deportation pursuant to the Holtzman Amendment [8 U.S.C. Section 1227(a)(4)(D)]. This provision demands the deportation of aliens who aided or otherwise took part in the Nazi persecution of persons because of race, religion, national origin, or political opinion. — According to the Department of Justice, OSI investigations of persons involved in Nazi atrocities have resulted in 63 persons losing their U.S. citizenship and in the removal of 49 from the U.S. Citation: Tittjung v. Reno, No. 98-3407 (7th Cir., December 2, 1999); U.S. Department of Justice press release (December 3, 1999).
