Obama's uncle is called a fugitive
Boston Globe ^ | August 31, 2011 | Maria Sacchetti and Dan Adams

Posted on 08/31/2011 11:27:58 AM PDT by Second Amendment First

The uncle of President Obama arrested here last week on drunken driving and other charges has been a fugitive from deportation since 1992, according to two federal law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case.

Onyango Obama, who is from Kenya and is known as the president's Uncle Omar on his father's side, had lived a quiet life in Massachusetts until last Wednesday, when police said the car he was driving darted in front of a police cruiser, nearly causing the officer to hit his car.

The federal officials, who spoke about Obama's immigration status on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak about the case, said Obama had been told to leave in 1992, but he did not go.

Obama is the second relative of the president to have defied a deportation order, reigniting debate over illegal immigration and raising questions about how a man who had lived in the United States illegally for years had managed to secure a job, a Massachusetts driver's license, and apparently, a federal Social Security number, without being detected by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

Shouldn’t be a problem for Holder’s JustUs Department. Fugitive status certainly didn’t stop him from recommending a presidential pardon for Marc Rich.

He’ll be okay, then. Just so long as he is not a criminal or a law-breaker, then he can stay.

If Obama’s so concerned about illegals, why doesn’t he just sign an Executive order granting them all U.S. citizenship and be done with it? 20 million new citizens, most of whom will vote Democrat. He must think the Americans he holds in such contempt might actually stand up and protest if he did something that extreme. He prefers the incremental approach, as demonstrated by his executive order last week to reduce deportations.

I don't think this is what really happened.

I think obama drove in front of a police officer who narrowly averted a crash.

Jeepers. How come Uncle Omar was asked down to the Vineyard last week? He sounds like a laugh riot.

A little boy is in the post office. He sees photos of people on the wall and asks the man behind the counter:

“Hey mister. Who are those people?”

And the post master replied, “Those are bad people. They are fugitives wanted for crimes they committed.”

The boy thought for a while and then said, “I wonder why they didn’t just keep them after they took their pictures.”

Funny you don’t hear much about Obama’s family. The press kept up with the antics of Billy Carter and Roger Clinton, we heard all about Reagan’s kids but hardly a word about the Obamanation’s family.

Wouldn’t it make a great documentary? A day in the life of George and Barrak Obama.

Isn’t harboring a fugitive a felony?
What did Obummer know and when did he know it.

Anyone know if Uncle Omar is registered to vote? In the USA that is, not Kenya.

Friends: (Bill Ayers) Fugitives

What else needs to be said?

Obama will be joining him as soon as America wakes up to what he has done between Fast and Furious and Obamacare

And so. . .'how long' has he been here? As long as Obama? Did he come with Auntie, perhaps and her hubby? More questions, for sure, than answers entire illegal unfolding.

Hope questions asked; and 'real' answers provided. That said; no 'holding of breath'. . .

Funny, or not. ..that Obama looks nothing like his family/tribe. (IMHO)

'Switched at birth' (wherever that may have been) or, something else?

Probably switched around two to four years after birth. Around the time a bunch of illegal 0bamas showed up. Obviously all the 0bama clan know the truth about the guy in the White House. I wonder if any of them will eventually start telling. Interesting how the guy in the WH never acts familial with his “relatives”.

Yes. . .and loved that 'lesson' he proselytized during his campaign, as to how, in Africa, one always take of their family.

( Just more 'missing piece' wisdom - it's absence made made more apparent - if one was inclined to be impressed by that is - when O's 'Auntie' showed up; illegal and living off welfare.).

. No one has mentioned, yet, if 'Uncle Omar' is self -supporting. Much less, why despite Obama's African roots and the tradition he speaks of; he nonetheless, persists in ignoring, HIS 'family' in need.

Easy to see, who, - per their political lights - discovered 'Uncle Sam', in what was to become, America's 'collective attic' .
