Kuzma/iStock(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) — A Tennessee resident who formerly served as a concentration camp guard in Nazi Germany has been ordered to be removed from the United States following a two-day trial in Memphis.Friedrich Karl Berger, according to the Justice Department, was ordered removed after admitting he served as an armed guard for a sub-camp of Neuengamme near Meppen, Germany, in which Jews, Poles, Russians, Danes and other political opponents of the Nazi regime, were subject to “atrocious” conditions working “to the point of exhaustion and death.”Berger admitted to investigators that he guarded prisoners during a two week journey after the camp had to be evacuated due to the advance of British and Canadian forces.Roughly 70 prisoners died during that journey, according to officials.Still a German citizen, Berger actually continued to receive a pension for his past employment in Germany that even cited “his wartime service,” the Justice Department said in a statement.“Berger was part of the SS machinery of oppression that kept concentration camp prisoners in atrocious conditions of confinement,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski said in a statement. “This ruling shows the Department’s continued commitment to obtaining a measure of justice, however late, for the victims of wartime Nazi persecution.”According to the DOJ, inspectors have investigated and ordered the removal of 109 other individuals who were found to have assisted the Nazis since 1979.It was not immediately clear after Thursday’s order whether German authorities will seek to prosecute Berger upon his eventual return to the country.In 2018, President Donald Trump personally ordered the removal of Jakiw Palij, then 95, from the U.S., citing his role as an armed guard at a death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Palij was also accused of lying to American immigration officials about his role when he came to the U.S. after the war.Palij passed away in Germany several months after his return.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Work can officially begin on the Burlington Waterfront North Project as the result of a signed agreement between the US Department of Transportation and the City of Burlington for $3.15 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars, US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced today.‘Recovery Act dollars are helping make Burlington a better place to live and work,’ said Secretary LaHood. ‘Here in Burlington, as in so many cities and communities across the country, Recovery Act projects are strengthening our infrastructure and creating well-paying jobs.’The project involves the rehabilitation and reconstruction of a section of Lake Street, the principal north-south access roadway servicing the downtown Lake Champlain waterfront, and the realignment and improvement of the Waterfront Bike Path.”Recovery Act funds will help further revitalize and renovate this industrial area in Burlington,’ said Federal Highway Administrator Victor Mendez. ‘The roadway and bike and pedestrian trails will be reconstructed and realigned to provide safer transportation choices at the waterfront.’The Burlington Waterfront North Project reclaims a portion of the formerly industrial downtown waterfront and enhances public access to the Lake Champlain shoreline. The waterfront currently suffers from inadequate transportation infrastructure, which creates significant safety concerns, restricts public access and limits economic development potential.The $3.15 million was awarded under the Recovery Act’s TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grant program. TIGER funding is intended to promote innovative, multi-modal and multi-jurisdictional transportation projects that provide significant economic and environmental benefits to an entire metropolitan area, region or the nation.The Department announced the selection of $1.5 billion worth of TIGER grants for 51 projects as part of the one-year anniversary of the Recovery Act on February 17.Source: US DOT. 9.28.2010###

Under Executive Order 2020-9, effective Monday, March 16 at 3:00pm, the following places of public accommodation will be closed; restaurants, cafes, coffee houses, bars, taverns, brewpubs, distilleries, clubs, movie theaters, indoor and outdoor performance venues, gymnasiums, fitness centers, recreation centers, indoor sports facilities, indoor exercise facilities, exercise studios, spas, and casinos. This order does not restrict a place of business from offering food and beverage using delivery service, window service, walk-up service, drive-through service, or drive-up service. Places of public accommodation are encouraged to do so and use precautions to mitigate potential transmission of COVID-19, including social distancing. Restaurants may allow five people inside at a time to pick up orders, so long as they stay six feet apart from each other. These restrictions do not apply to the following locations: office buildings, grocery stores, markets, food pantries, pharmacies, drug stores, and providers of medical equipment and supplies, health care facilities, residential care facilities, congregate care facilities, and juvenile justice facilities, warehouse and distribution centers, and industrial and manufacturing facilities. Order restrictions will remain in place until Monday, March 30 at 11:59 pm. “This disease is a challenge unlike any we’ve experienced in our lifetimes,” said Governor Whitmer. “Fighting it will cause significant but temporary changes to our daily lives. By practicing social distancing and taking aggressive action now, the state is working to mitigate the spread of coronavirus so we reduce the risk that our health care system becomes overwhelmed. This is about saving lives. Michiganders are tough and we are going to get through this, but it will require everyone doing their part. That means making smart choices and not putting yourself or others at risk by going out in public unless it is absolutely necessary.” “We need to move quickly to slow the spread of the virus and protect public health,” said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun. “I realize these actions will present temporary changes to the way we live, but they are critical to help ensure our health care system is prepared to treat those who need the most urgent medical care.” “This crisis will require business and labor working together to ensure that we are putting the best interests of Michiganders first in order to protect public health,” said Jeff Donofrio, Director of the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity. “We understand that these decisions will impact the way we do business, but the decisions we make now will allow us to get our economy back on track sooner rather than later. We are putting measures in place to help protect the employers, employees, and individuals that will be impacted.” To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Governors across the United States have begun implementing similar measures in their states, including Jay Inslee (D-WA), Charlie Baker (R-MA), and Tom Wolf (D-PA). Patients with confirmed infection have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of: Fever Cough Shortness of breath The best prevention for viruses, such as influenza, the common cold or COVID-19 is to: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, call your health care provider. If you do not have a health care provider, call the nearest hospital. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Avoid contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, stay home, and avoid contact with others. Replace handshakes with elbow bumps. Stay at least 6 feet away from others when in a public setting.
