    (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), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, 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...

    Barack Obama's popularity can be gauged by the growing desperation with which his enemies are fighting him. A self-appointed individual (DineshD'Souza) is busy collecting money to lift one of Barack's Kenyan siblings [George Hussein Onyango Obama] out of poverty. (whereas hunger is rasping millions of other Kenyans), to "rescue" Obama's half-brother from "misery" in a Nairobi slum. First, to live in a slum isn't necessarily to be a pauper. I know individuals with lots of money who live permanently in such areas.

    *snip* A police officer said (((Onyango))) Obama made a rolling stop at a stop sign and nearly caused his cruiser to crash into Obama's sport utility vehicle. Police said Obama registered 0.14 on a blood-alcohol test. The legal limit in Massachusetts is 0.08. A judge is expected to hear arguments Thursday on a motion to suppress statements he made to police and the test results. Immigration officials allege that Obama, originally from Kenya, violated a 1992 order to return to Kenya.

    I’m glad I thought to ask Mitt that question about Uncle Omar – that headline looks great on the Drudge Report this afternoon. “Romney: I’d Deport Obama’s Uncle" It was a no-brainer. I was just surprised he didn’t know who I was talking about at first. I understand that he wouldn’t read Barack’s narcissistic memoirs, but hey, Uncle Omar’s been in the Boston papers for months now. This is the kind of red meat Republican primary voters want. The reason Gov. Rick Perry dropped like a stone in the polls last fall wasn’t so much that he had that brain...

    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...

"Well, yeah. He's here illegally. He's obviously broken the law. I don't know enough about the details of the case, but, God, he's been running around for how long now?" Brown said in an interview on the Howie Carr Show. "Let him go through the process and see what happens." Brown said that "in a fair world," Obama's uncle would be deported.

    Obama Onyango lives in a modest, single-family home on a quiet, leafy street in Framingham. He hosted popular backyard barbecues. His pale yellow house was always bustling with people. And heÂ’d pass the time on the front porch, adorned with a welcome mat and flower pots. It almost sounds like the American Dream. A 2011 version of it, maybe. Because the 67-year-old Kenyan who happens to be President ObamaÂ’s uncle wasnÂ’t supposed to be living here, let alone driving drunk here. HeÂ’s what some people call undocumented. What others call illegal. Immigration authorities had been on the lookout for Onyango...

    And now, from the “embarrassing relatives” department: an individual identified as an illegal alien by the Boston Herald was arrested in Framingham, Massachusetts for drunk driving. When taken into custody, the 67-year-old male requested to make a call to the White House– likely not a terribly uncommon request for an intoxicated person in custody, but Onyango Obama had better reason than most for the call: his half-nephew lives there. Both the Herald and the Globe reported the incident occurring last Wednesday, in which, according to the Globe: Onyango Obama, 67, of Framingham, the half-brother of the president’s late father, was...
