Obama’s "Uncle Omar" to meet with Immigration Officials to Discuss Deportation to Kenya
The Boston Globe reports that President Obama's uncle Onyango "Omar" Obama has been "summoned" to a meeting with ICE officials in Burlington, Massachusetts to discuss his deportation to Kenya.
Uncle Omar was ordered deported in 1992, but never left the United States. His drunk driving arrest last August brought him to the attention of immigration officials. On Tuesday, Uncle Omar appeared in Court where he admitted that he had a blood alcohol level of 0.14 when he was stopped.
Brian P. Hale, ICE director of public affairs has stated that: “Now that Mr. Onyango’s criminal case has completed, ICE has communicated, in accordance with standard procedure, with his attorney regarding his removal pursuant to a previous final order by an immigration judge.’’
Omar is the second relative of President Obama living in the United States without lawful immigration status.
I wonder if he is a deportation priority.
