22. Well you'd have a point if
they weren't finding other "Ivans". In fact they are! The fact that he lied on his applications was in the original charges and were not added later after it was ruled that he wasn't "Ivan".

From 2004:
A federal immigration judge has ordered the deportation of an 80-year-old Queens resident who was an armed guard at a Nazi forced labor camp during World War II, the Justice Department announced yesterday. The man, Jakiw Palij, left, of Jackson Heights, was stripped of his American citizenship last year after a federal judge found that he lied about his past when he came to this country in 1949. He was ordered deported to Ukraine and has 30 days to appeal. William Glaberson (NYT)

From 2006:
Federal authorities freed a former Nazi concentration camp guard after failing to find a country willing to take the 81-year-old man, who had been stripped of his American citizenship. The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in January upheld a decision to revoke the citizenship of the man, Johann Leprich of Clinton Township in Macomb County. In September, Mr. Leprichs lawyer asked a federal judge to order his client released, citing a Supreme Court decision requiring the freeing of those still held for deportation six months after a removal order. The Justice Department said it released Mr. Leprich on Monday because Romania, Hungary and Germany had refused to accept him, the Detroit Free Press reported. Mr. Leprich must report weekly to the immigration and customs agency.

Based on the second story it would appear that Demjanjuk stands a good chance of not being deported if nobody else will take him.
