Former New York Police Department officer and U.S. Army veteran Dr. Darrin Porcher blamed America’s government bureaucracy on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday for failing to uncover a Nazi guard who was secretly living in New York City.

“It was an inexcusable failure,” said fellow guest Rich Buzby from the New Jersey Association of Chiefs of Police.

“And as they say, justice delayed is justice denied, but not in this case. Fortunately, somebody picked up the ball at some point and the proper actions were taken.” (RELATED: Watch The Moment ICE Agents Arrest The Last Known Nazi In The U.S.)

Jakiw Palij, who is 95 years old, was a death camp guard in Poland during World War II and came to America following the war. He lied about his role in the Holocaust, but was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tuesday and deported back to Germany.

Buzby said the families of the victims who suffered under Palij can rest easy now, knowing justice has finally been served by the Trump administration.


“There are families out there under which — under this man, which suffered terribly, and they deserve their day in the sun and their opportunity at the court of justice. And I believe that’s where they’ve gotten now.”

Porcher chimed in to chastise the government bureaucracy for allowing Palij to slip through the cracks for decades.

“This was a Bureaucratic nightmare. This was a catastrophe to say the least,” Porcher added.

“This is something that was going on and on for I want to say, 40 years he’s been here. And the truth of the matter is, this is something that moves forward Trump’s agenda in illegal immigration. This is someone that should not have been in this country to begin with. And fortunately the proper steps are being taken to move this person off into Germany.”
