Judicial Watch Obtains Records from ICE Regarding Presidentís Illegal Alien Uncle Onyango Obama

Documents Detail Stonewall of Congressional, Press Inquiries and Leak Investigation

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the organization that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that it has obtained records from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding President Obama’s illegal alien uncle, Onyango Obama, who was arrested in August 2011 on drunken driving charges in Framingham, Massachusetts. The records include internal ICE correspondence showing agency officials withholding information on Onyango’s release from the press and possibly from Congress. The documents were turned over to Judicial Watch yesterday (July 11) pursuant to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed on April 10, 2012. (Judicial Watch first asked for these records in September 2011.)

Among the highlights from the newly disclosed records:

“I think it is preposterous that I will have to write in the Boston Globe tomorrow that the federal agency in charge of detaining immigrants refuses to say whether he is in custody or not – even as its own website clearly says he is not.”

Ms. Rahilly then explained why the agency refuses to confirm reports of Onyango’s release: “We don’t consider the fact that a person’s information may be able to be found by attorneys, families and friends of the individual…to mean that the information is de facto public for purposes of media inquiries or under FOIA.” Rahilly wrote. “Given that there appears to have been a leak of this person’s information, and the low public interest in the details requested by the Globe, [Chief Privacy Officer/Chief FOIA Officer] Mary Ellen [Callahan] and I did not find that the public interest outweighed the privacy interest in this instance.”

The records also include an internal ICE email showing the agency’s unwillingness to respond to an inquiry from Rep. Lamar Smith’s office.

On March 27, 2012, Onyango Obama admitted to the Framingham District Court that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, meanwhile, indicated the agency will continue deportation proceedings against Obama: “Now that (Mr. Obama’s) criminal case has completed, ICE has communicated, in accordance with standard procedure, with the attorney of record regarding his removal pursuant to a previous final order by an immigration judge,” agency spokesman Brian Hale said, per the Boston Herald . (Onyango was first ordered out of the country in 1989.)

Obama, who, upon his arrest, said his one phone call would be to the White House, has indicated he will fight ICE’s efforts to deport him in a high profile proceeding the Boston Herald conjectured could “drag on for years.” While he fights deportation, Obama will be allowed to drive a car. He was supposed to lose his license for 45 days, but received a “hardship license,” from the Massachusetts’s Department of Motor Vehicles so that he could drive back and forth to his job at a liquor store.

“One thing is clear from these records, Immigration and Customs Enforcement attempted to stonewall the release of information about President Obama’s illegal alien uncle,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is precisely because of Onyango’s family relationship to President Obama that ICE should have been more transparent, not less.”

Who would have thought arrested illegal aliens have privacy rights? Only in an Obama administration and I suppose only if the illegal alien is the uncle of POTUS.

He got caught driving drunk, but he got a hardship license so he can drive back and forth to his job at a liquor store.

Geesus H. Keeryst, can you believe this crap?

Where is Jay Leno, he is missing out on big laughs from this one.

Every time I see “Judicial Watch” all I can think of is Lucy and Charlie Brown.

All during the Clinton regime, Judicial Watch would file a lawsuit on everything from soup to nuts and all we ever got was air just like Charlie Brown.

To be fair, they are IMO working within a legal system rigged 100% in favor of the ruling elite.

Yep, and he's here illegally.

It shows just how far gone our legal system is, a purge of liberal leftist judges is direly needed.

We know BHO II was in the U.S. as a Permanent Resident Alien from 1971 to 1983 because his legal custodian during that time, Catholic Social Services of Connecticut, filed Form SS-5, Application for SSN, on his behalf in 1977. BHO II would not have been in the custody of Catholic Social Services of Connecticut if he was not a foreign national.

BHO II naturalized as a U.S. Citizen in 1983.

I hadn’t seen this explanation of his CT SSN before.
It looks from google as though this came out around Nov last year - on FR - and sank without leaving a ripple.

Do you know the original source?

Original source is the Social Security Administration.

As with a birth certificate, an applicant has a right to privacy, but can waive it and show a certified copy. There’s no difference between asking Obama for his BC and his SSN application.

Same with his NUMIDENT file with SSA. This is the best source to prove Obama was a Permanent Resident Alien in 1977. The PRA field in the NUMIDENT file is marked with an “Y” for YES the applicant is a Permanent Resident Alien.

Obama can file a simple one page request to obtain certified copies of the documents with the SSA, just like with his BC.

Yup, that’s the image. Every time we think we have the communist enemy within cornered, the ruling elite slip away.
