GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney promises to deport Obama back to Kenya if Romney is elected in 2012. No, not deport Barack Obama, but his Uncle Omar, Onyango Obama. During an interview with Howie Carr of WRKO in Boston. Carr raised the issue of Uncle Omar, who was recently arrested for DUI in Framingham, Massachusetts. Onyango Obama is an illegal immigrant who has been skirting those laws in the United States for more than 20 years now on having proper documentation. When arrested, he even insisted that the White House be called so his nephew Barack could help him out.
When Carr raised the subject, Romney did not know who Uncle Omar was, the half-brother of Barack Obama′s father. But once informed, Romney declared that he would have no trouble deporting Onyango Obama back to Kenya. Romney said ″Well, if the laws of the United States say he should be deported, and I presume they do, then of course we should follow those laws. And the answer is ′yes.′″
Onyango violated an order to return to Kenya in 1992. Since then, he has obtained a Social Security card and number, as well as a Massachusetts drivers license. He refuses to say how he obtained these documents. When arrested in August on the DUI charge, Uncle Omar amazingly had two lawyers fighting for him immediately. At first he was held without bail as custody shifted him to the arms of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, otherwise known as ICE. But not long after that, he was released altogether with just a requirement to check in regularly with immigration agents.
Will Mitt Romney get any traction for promising to deport Onyango Obama back to Kenya? Known as Uncle Omar, the half-brother of Barack Obama′s father, he has been living illegally in the United States for about 20 years now. Howie Carr of WRKO in Boston raised the subject with Romney during an interview. Romney said that if he is elected to replace Obama in the White House, he will uphold those laws which Uncle Omar has been skirting all these years and deport him back to his native Kenya.
