Skip to comments.GOP Congressman Wants Hearings on Amnesty for Obama's "Drunken Uncle Omar"
Posted on 09/12/2011 2:37:12 PM PDT by montag813
GOP Rep. Steve King (R-IA) - a stalwart opponent of illegal alien amnesty, came out with a strong response to Barack Obama's "Uncle Omar" - the 20-year fugitive from justice busted for DUI in Massachussetts 2 weeks ago, who was then summarily released by ICE a few days ago. This follows the outrage of Obama's Aunt Zeituni mooching off welfare and public housing for years in Boston, before being outed - and then getting asylum in an unprecedented closed immigration hearing.
As Judiciary Chariman Lamar Smith said Friday, "It appears there is a double standard one for President Obamas family and one for everyone else."
Pulling no punches, King demands hearings on Obama's "drunken Uncle Omar"...

Chairman Smith should permit Rep. King to conduct these hearings as soon as possible.
Putting aside the issue of illegal immigration, we simply cannot believe how unseemly this all is. These are the blood relatives of the President of the United States - a man with an $11 million net worth - who wrote lovingly of his "Uncle Omar" and "Aunt Zeituni" is his book "Dreams from my Father". Yet he sat idly by while the two of them stayed for years in this nation illegally, bilking the taxpayers for welfare and public housing, and committing an unknown number of additional crimes.
EXCERPT...READ THE REST HERE
wow, yes, maybe soething will come of this?
I don’t care about one particular illegal alien. Senators are always drafting special legislation to get some constituent darling American citizenship.
I do, however, care about the amnesty-by-fiat memo that was issued a few months ago.
At the very least, King has a duty to draft legislation or appeal to the Supreme Court to stop this usurpation of legislative powers by the executive. Neither he nor any other Congressman has fulfilled that duty, so I’m not interested in his grandstanding over Obama’s uncle.
