    President Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was denied asylum in the United States but stayed illegally for years, died Tuesday at age 61. Onyango, whose immigration status was reported by The Associated Press days before Obama’s election in 2008, had been treated in recent months for cancer and respiratory problems, Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong said. She died in a Boston rehabilitation center, said Wong, who represented her in her immigration case. Onyango, a half-sister of Obama’s late father, moved from Kenya to the U.S. in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She remained in...

    The “good moral character” of President Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle, arrested for drunken driving in 2011, has earned him legal U.S. residency and a chance to apply for American citizenship, a judge has decided. This is a classic example of the benefits of having friends—in this case a nephew—in high places. Onyango “Omar” Obama had lived illegally in the U.S. for decades when he got busted driving drunk in Framingham Massachusetts. At the time of his arrest Uncle Onyango had already been deported yet continued to live and work in the Boston area and he had a valid Massachusetts drivers’...

    ... The half brother of the president’s late father, Onyango Obama has lived in the United States since the 1960s. He was ordered to leave the country in 1992, but remained. Judge Shapiro cited a law that entitles immigrants who are “out of status” to become permanent residents if they arrived before 1972, maintained continuous residence and are of good moral character.

    (CNSNews.com) -- The U.S Board of Immigration Appeals has agreed to reopen the immigration case of Onyango Obama, delaying the deportation of the 68-year old Kenyan who violated an order to leave the United States in 1992. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to CNSNews.com on Tuesday that Obama, who is the president’s uncle, was granted a rehearing last week and his case is being re-opened. “The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) remanded the case back to Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) for reconsideration. It is inappropriate for ICE to offer any further comment on this case,” Brian...

    Following the publication of embarrassing internal government emails by Judicial Watch, the Homeland Security agency responsible for deporting criminal illegal immigrants is dodging questions about President Obama’s illegal alien uncle, who got busted for drunken driving last year in Massachusetts. The case received widespread media coverage because the commander-in-chief’s uncle, Onyango Obama, had previously been deported to his native Kenya yet lived and worked in the Boston area and threatened to call the White House after getting arrested. He also had a valid Massachusetts drivers’ license, which was temporarily suspended after his drunken-driving arrest but, incredibly, has been reinstated by...

    Barack Hussein Obama's drunk-driving illegal immigrant (half) Uncle Omar (Onyango Obama) is in the news again, but for once not because of his own (mis-) doing.  Although the only difference between him and the illegal, unlicensed, and soused Mexican immigrant that mowed-over a 16-year old girl with his SUV in Minnesota last week -killing her- appears to be dumb luck, he's also got a powerful ally at the very top of the vile regime that's currently running this country.The illegal-immigrant liquor store cashier was first ordered out of the country in 1989, yet he's somehow dodged the law of this land...

    President Obama’s illegal-immigrant uncle has received a limited driver’s license from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles only a week after entering a plea to drunken driving. An RMV spokeswoman told the Boston Herald that Onyango Obama, 67, “met all of the criteria” for a hardship driver’s license that allows him to drive in Massachusetts from noon to midnight. The elder Mr. Obama lost his regular license for 45 days in court last week but convinced a hearing officer that being unable to drive would pose an undue hardship for him in his job as a liquor store manager. The...

    President Obama’s illegal alien half-uncle argued in court today his arrest on a drunken driving charge this summer violated his constitutional rights and he wants evidence suppressed and the case thrown out. Onyango Obama’s lawyer filed a motion to suppress in Framingham District Court today, claiming he questions the legality of the illegal alien’s Aug. 24 arrest on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and whether the arrest violated Obama’s Fourth Amendment rights against unlawful search and seizure. The motion is to suppress the entire traffic stop by police that night, on claims Obama was not committing...

You've come to see Sarah Onyango, you explain, the woman referred to as "Granny" by the president of the United States.

    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.

    Perhaps Barack Obama’s drive to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants does not stem from his professed sympathy for immigrants nor his hope of naturalizing millions of new Democratic voters, but from his desire to shield his law-breaking relatives from deportation. On Wednesday, police in Framingham, Massachusetts, arrested President Obama’s uncle, 67-year-old Onyango Obama, for driving under the influence. During the stop, Onyango — whom the president calls “Uncle Omar” — showed the Obama family‘s highly cultivated sense of entitlement. According to the arresting officer, after coasting through a stop sign and nearly causing the officer to hit him, Onyango became...
