    But it was perfectly alright to bring Nazi scientists into the U.S. after the war under Project Paperclip to work on our biological warfare plans or Jap Colonel Saburo Endo, in charge of the Jap biological warfare testing by Unit 731, that used U.S. POW's for experimentation. Can you say "double standards"?

    And, nobody is 'revoking the citizenship' of 12 million illegal Mexicans... just talking about priorities here...
    The 'ex-Nazi guard' will be dead in a few years... the 12 million illegal Mexicans will have 6 million illegal Mexilets in a few years.

    CAMDEN, N.J. -- A federal judge has revoked the citizenship of a retired blueberry farmer because of his past as a Nazi guard during World War II.

    The Justice Department said Andrew Kuras, 81, of Mays Landing, served as a guard at three concentration camps in the 1940s.

    Officials said Kuras concealed his Nazi past when he entered the United States in 1951 and when he became a citizen 11 years later.

    The judge entered the court order Tuesday.

    "No one who assisted the Nazi regime in its persecution of innocent civilians is entitled to the privilege of United States citizenship," prosecutor Christopher A. Wray said in a statement Wednesday.

    In a 2002 interview with the Press of Atlantic City, Kuras said he did not kill or hurt anyone and that he did not remember specific duties he had as a guard.

    A Justice Department spokesman said the government had not decided whether to try to have Kuras deported.

    Calls placed Wednesday to the office of Kuras' lawyer were not answered.
