The Justice Department is asking a federal appeals court to dismiss a stay of deportation to Germany for alleged death camp guard John Demjanjuk. In a brief filed in a federal appeals court Monday, the government said that Demjanjuk's attorneys won the emergency stay last week by arguing that a motion before the Board of Immigration Appeals in Falls Church, Virginia, had yet to be considered. The board on Thursday denied Demjanjuk's request to reopen the case. The 89-year-old suburban Cleveland man is facing an arrest warrant in Germany that accuses him of working as a guard in 1943 at a death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland.
