The radical left is caught between a rock and a hard place today as President Donald J. Trump deported the last known Nazi collaborator from his home in New York back to his native Germany.
“Justice Department officials say Jakiw Palij served as an armed guard at a death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland and later lied to American immigration officials about his role in those atrocities when he entered the U.S. after the war,” according to ABC.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) removed Palij from his Queens, NY home last night after Trump secured his deportation back to his native Germany.
“President Trump commends his Administration’s comprehensive actions, especially ICE’s actions, in removing this war criminal from United States soil,” a statement from the Trump administration said. “Despite a court ordering his deportation in 2004, past administrations were unsuccessful in removing Palij. To protect the promise of freedom for Holocaust survivors and their families, President Trump prioritized the removal of Palij. Through extensive negotiations, President Trump and his team secured Palij’s deportation to Germany and advanced the United States’ collaborative efforts with a key European ally.”
But the left is still apparently unsatisfied with Trump, though he deported a literal Nazi. Their reaction to Palij’s removal shows how truly deranged they are.
“You’re still a RACIST administration,” said one Twitter user.
You're still a RACIST administration.

Another rabid leftist claimed that Trump only deported Palij for “Jewish votes.”

Laura Zam, a New York Times contributor, was likewise dissatisfied.
“Deporting Jakiw Palij is not going to bring back my grandmother, grandfather, aunts and uncles — all killed by Nazis. I know I’m supposed to want
#justice here, but I just don’t see the point, at this point,” she said.

It seems there is no winning with the political left. They will likely be doing mental gymnastics all day trying to rectify how deporting a Nazi makes Trump a Nazi. It should be an interesting show.
