the rules in force did stipulate that former Totenkopf were ineligible for entry in the US. if in fact he was a member
and did enter under a falsified statement, then there is a case to revoke his status. If he was an angel of mercy rather than an angel of death, perhaps a survivor will vouch for that. If not I shed no tear for at the time guards of all ages were gleefully participating in the holocaust and he is lucky to have escaped justice for so long.

gleefully participating

I think you missed the part in the article where it referenced other draftees that were forced to be guards/escorts.

Geiser says he was forced to join the SS at the age of 17, in 1942, and that he never killed anyone. And while he served as a guard at the Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald concentration camps, he didn’t serve at so-called death camps, such as Treblinka and Auschwitz-Birkenau, which existed only to exterminate people.

The legal question is "about when people are dragged into assisting the persecutions involuntarily," Roe said, referring to an asylum case involving an Eritrean man who said he was forced to guard prisoners in Ethiopia. In that case the Supreme Court ordered immigration authorities to consider whether people who were part of persecutions did so involuntarily.

Geiser told prosecutors he was ashamed of his work as a camp guard. "I was not proud where I served and I didn’t like it then and I didn’t like it now."

You must have a very different definition of "glee" than I do.
