Remember the story of Barack Obama’s illegal alien Aunt Zeituni who had mooched the system in Boston for public housing, welfare and food stamps for years. All while ignoring deportation orders and skipping immigration hearings, before a judge (in an unprecedented closed hearing) granted her asylum in May 2010.
You may recall that Obama’s Aunt wasn’t exactly humble or grateful about her experience:
Now is has been reported that Obama has another close relative in the U.S. illegally who is gaming the system in Massachussetts. Onyango Obama, 67, is the “Uncle Omar” mentioned in the president’s book, “Dreams From My Father.” He is the brother of Zeituni and last week, “Uncle Omar” Obama was arrested in Framingham, Mass. for DUI when nearly colliding with a police car. The details:
Obama failed a field sobriety test after almost running his SUV into a police car in Framingham, Mass, near Boston. According to a police report, he rolled through a stop sign and then made a quick left turn, requiring the squad car and another vehicle to slam on their breaks to avoid hitting him.And if there was any doubt about his connection with the President, “Uncle Omar” cleared that up right away when he was booked:
Framingham Public Information Officer Lieutenant Delaney said when Onyango Obama was asked at the station if he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail, he replied: “I think I will call the White House.”
Uncle Obama has a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement warrant for his arrest. ICE has previously ordered him to be deported back to Kenya…. Judge Douglas Stoddart did not set any bail on the driving charges but ordered him held on the ICE warrant.Sound familiar? That is what Aunt Zeituni faced as well, minus the DUI of course. In fact, it has now been reported that “Uncle Omar” has retained Cleveland lawyer Margaret Wong – the same immigration attorney who successfully represented Mr. Obama’s sister Zeituni, when she managed to avoid deportation to Kenya. So will Obama’s Uncle get the same reward for his crimes as did Obama’s Aunt – asylum?
And what of Presidnet Obama’s recent order suspending the deportations of millions of illegal aliens? Will this apply to his own Uncle as well? And if so, is that express conflict of interest even legal under Federal law or ethics requirements?
