Obama’s Uncle Gets OK’d; Not All “Illegals” Get Deported.

President Obama’s uncle got the OK to stay in the U.S. Tuesday by an immigration judge in Boston. Onyango Obama ignored his deportation orders more than two decades ago but was given permanent resident status after he testified that he has lived in the U.S. for more than half a century. “He has earned his privilege to stay in the United States. He has been here for 50 years,” said Onyango’s Attorney, Margaret Wong, Tuesday before the hearing.

Onyango is the half-brother of President Obama’s late father. He had come to the U.S. in 1963 from Kenya on a student visa that expired in 1970. That means that he has been living in the country illegally for more than 4 decades. “He’s so happy to stay here because he loves this country,” Ms. Wong said. Onyango described America as the “Land of Opportunities.”

When asked during the hearing whether he had any relatives in the U.S, Onyango said he had two nieces, a nephew and a sister. Asked who the nephew was, Onyango Obama replied: “Barack Obama. He’s the President of the United States.”

Onyango’s immigration status became public in 2011 when he was arrested in Framingham, Massachusetts for driving under the influence. After the arrest, he is alleged to have told the police, “I think I will call the White House.” When asked by the prosecutor to clarify whether he actually said those words, he said he might have said those words.

However, his attorney called him a wonderful older gentleman. While reading the ruling, judge Leonard Shapiro said that Onyango qualified for legal permanent residency since he has a good moral character and that the provision in federal immigration allows immigrants who have lived in America since 1972 to apply for a “green card”.

Is Obama’s Uncle Getting Special Treatment?

    In America, it is not what you do — it is who you know.

    I have a friend who is a cop. He flat out said this in front of a group of people. If you know the right person and have the right amount of money, you can get get out of anything. The only people who go to prison are people who can’t afford defenses or people who are innocent. The number of people walking around that are guilty as sin is huge. The number of innocent people in prison is even larger.

    This came from a cop and he was deadly honest. He said this was especially true in small town America. If you ever see stings that set up people from out of town, it is done for money, money, money. The town he was from did an “internet predator” sting. He said all those guys were innocent. But all were forced to plead guilty and pay a ton of money. His town had a 1,000 people in it. Yet, they were doing a massive sting. It was just an easy way to get money. He flat out said that every one of those guys were set up and the evidence that shows this was conveniently lost.

    In America, it is not what you do — it is who you know and how much money you have ….. this goes for everyone from me to Obama’s uncle.

      It is hard to hear what you said — but you told the truth. I was a former prosecutor who switched to a defense attorney to eventually leaving the entire profession. American courtrooms are corrupt to the core. People don’t think they are until they end up in one.
