    Uncle Onyango a free criminal

    By:
    John Zaremba, O’Ryan Johnson

    President Obama’s illegal-alien uncle has been granted the right to remain in the United States after going before a judge today to seek permanent residency and quash a decades-old deportation order.

    Onyango Obama, a Kenyan national who was ordered deported in 1992, appeared before immigration judge Leonard I. Shapiro — the same judge who granted asylum in 2010 to Obama’s sister, Zeituni Onyango -- the president's aunt.

    Asked about his family in the U.S., Onyango Obama said, "I do have a nephew." Asked to name the nephew, he said, "Barack Obama, he's the president of the United States."

    Shapiro found Obama to be “of good character” though he noted Obama’s 2011 drunk driving arrest and the fact that he may have lied about his citizenship status to a federal investigator during questioning in 1984. Shapiro found Obama’s ties to the community, his work ethic and the fact that he paid taxes made up for any other misdeeds.

    Obama, the half-brother of President Obama’s late father, had been living quietly in Framingham and working as a liquor-store clerk until the 2011 OUI arrest brought his immigration status to light. The OUI case was continued without a finding.
