An 88-year-old Michigan man who served in a Nazi-controlled police force in Poland is due to appear in a Detroit immigration court on Tuesday, for the first time since the US government filed a deportation case in July. The US Justice Department wants John Kalymon kicked out of the country. The Troy, Michigan, man lost his citizenship in 2007. The US government has said Kalymon shot Jews while serving in the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police in the city of Lviv, which was part of Poland until 1939. Kalymon denies shooting anyone. Kalymon is due Tuesday in immigration court in Detroit. His lawyer, Elias Xenos, said Kalymon suffers from prostate cancer and is in declining health.
