A federal immigration judge ruled Tuesday that President Obamas uncle can remain in the United States, sparing him deportation to his native Kenya in a case that riveted attention on the elderly man who had lived under the radar in this country for 50 years. For most of that time, he was here illegally.
Boston immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro said Onyango Omar Obama can now get a green card, and in five years, apply for US citizenship, unless the Department of Homeland Security appeals the case within 30 days.
Congratulations, Shapiro said after he announced his decision. Welcome to America.
The case stirred controversy because the presidents uncle was arrested in 2011 for drunken driving in Framingham and was found to have an outstanding deportation order from 1992. Many accused the government of giving him special treatment at the same time President Obama is deporting record numbers of illegal immigrants.
But Shapiro said Onyango Obama was eligible for a green card under federal immigration law because he arrived in America before 1972 and had displayed good moral character. The judge said the 69-year-old paid taxes, volunteered in the community, and was a kind and decent person.
During his testimony, Obama begged the judge for the chance to stay, saying he did not know Kenya anymore. He left at age 19 to come to the United States.

During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obamas disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the presidents behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.
On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institutes Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the presidents legal behavior.
There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government, Cannon said. Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.
Who didn’t see this coming...
We are living in the Spock with a beard dimension.
why is Kenya such a bad place to be deported back to?
Amnesty by nepotism. Sickening.
This clown was ordered deported. Then, years later, another legislator-in-black decides he can stay; and, in fact, can apply for citizenship.
I just read this and was getting ready to post it..Thanks to Michael Cannon for being courageous to speak the truth to the American people and thanks to you for posting his comments. Being forewarned might be a help to people who pay attention. We all need to think about the ammunition our government has stored in more agencies than just Homeland Security. None of us want to think those bullets have our names on them, but it gets more and more difficult not to think the unthinkable.
Keep the uncle and ship the Bam back from whence he came.
It’s good to be the king (or be his uncle).
And yet we can’t find space for a German home school family here with jobs & education.
Fundamentally transform America.
Good thing he isn’t trying to HOMESCHOOL a child!
