Obama’s Illegal-immigrant Uncle May — or May not — be Deported

 The Boston Herald reported on April 13 that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is pushing to deport Onyango Obama, President Obama’s illegal-immigrant uncle. Onyango came from Kenya and never went back, just like the President's Aunt Zeituni. Cops collared Onyango Obama in August 2011 after he almost crashed into a police cruiser. The President’s uncle was driving drunk, a charge to which he confessed in court in late March.

Onyango came from Kenya and never went back, just like the President's Aunt Zeituni. Cops collared Onyango Obama in August 2011 after he almost crashed into a police cruiser. The President’s uncle was driving drunk, a charge to which he confessed in court in late March.

 
Now, he must meet regularly with ICE officials, the Herald reported.
 
The Case
The 175-pound liquor store clerk’s blood alcohol level was 0.14 in the drunk-driving incident, nearly twice the legal limit in Massachusetts, meaning he had consumed about a half-dozen drinks in an hour. Cops charged him with drunk driving, failing to yield, and negligent driving. He pleaded not guilty, and ICE temporarily detained him. They subsequently released him.
 
After the arrest, the long story of Onyango Obama’s illegal sojourn came to light. He has been evading a deportation order for two decades, and along the way procured a driver’s license and Social Security card.
 
According to the Boston Globe, Obama lived the “quiet life” in America. He had encountered police three times without, apparently, raising suspicion. Two of those encounters involved Obama selling alcohol to minors, in one case the “minor” being an undercover cop.
 
As the Metrowest Daily reported at the time of his arrest, “[In 2010], police conducted a sting by sending an underage man into the store to buy liquor.”
