I think he should have had the same punishment everyone else got instead of running away. The law should dictate what happens to him now. I personally don't see a benefit in giving him jail time or deporting him because he's probably close to dead anyways. He may not have been a racist scumbag, he may have just been another german victim in the military who wanted out.
If he is here illegally then yes he should get deported. But he should be given the option to try and become legal first since he has been here so long. Is he evil for what he's done. Yes he is. Should he die for things he did while under the control of someone else No. It was either do as you're told or die.
I dunno, at 94 I would say just let him live out the rest of his years with his family. Deporting him would be heartless.....that being said, if he vocally still supported his Nazi ways and was proud of it, then I'd say deport him....all depends on his current views and lifestyle.
Wtf... they're like asking for people to attack him by including all of that information :?
But honestly, if he's here legally then why deport him? But if he is here illegally then deport him. His former affiliation should have nothing to do with whether or not he can stay here.

He is here illegally. He lied to get into the country and if they'd known he'd served he wouldn't have been allowed in.
Let him stay. He is a former Nazi, yes, but apparently he hasn't done anything to get him in trouble since he was here. Quite possibly he was very young back then and only following orders. He was probably brainwashed by Hitler.
I don't see the benefit of punishing someone that old for something that happened a long time ago.
Well he is old and will not live much longer. I don't know much about the guy other than what was stated in the OP so who knows how he feels now. Deport him if he is still a nasty old timer otherwise just leave him be.
i think alot of people had to do things they regret now for the sake of war.not only on the losing side either. i think at 94 hes probably lived the last 60+years off his life fearing that people would find out who he was and face deportation and prison anyway. more than what some murders would get today.id let him stay. if they printed his name and address anyway, some people are going to make his stay there hell anyway.
I really don't see the point of sending him back now, especially when he is heartbeats away from kicking the bucket.
Deportation isn't and shouldn't be based on his beliefs now. Let the old man die here, it's where he spent most of his life.
I think because he is here illegally, he should be deported. That should be the reason for him to leave, not because he is a former Nazi. Why wasn't he found out sooner if he's been here since WWII?

Since he's 94, it would probably be too much trouble and money to do something about it... he's bound to die soon anyway.

I read more into it once I got a chance. I guess he was a commander so they want to charge him because commanders are prosecuted regardless of proof of their actions, but from what I read, he had a lot of involvement.
