A bunch of articles have crossed my desk over the last few days about Obama’s illegal alien Kenyan uncle arrested in Massachusetts in late August. Reader ‘blackpanther’ says he won’t believe the story until it comes from the White House.
Blackpanther, here is one pretty definitive statement from Obama’s front man—Jay Carney—to CNS News:
He will be treated like any other illegal alien (yeh right! let go!):
President Barack Obama’s uncle, facing deportation for being in the country illegally, will not be treated differently than anyone else under U.S. laws, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told CNSNews.com on Thursday.
“I would refer you to ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and DHS [Department of Homeland Security]. It will be handled like any other immigration case,” Carney said.
CNSNews.com also asked, “Was the president aware that his uncle was in the United States as an undocumented immigrant?” But before the question was completely asked, Carney interjected, saying President Obama “was made aware of this issue when I walked into his office and, among other subjects, mentioned it to him and he was completely unaware.”
Carney apparently was speaking in reference to when the president first learned of his uncle’s arrest. Carney did not say whether the president knew his uncle was in the United States illegally.
Here is another story, this one from the Boston Globe, telling us that Uncle Omar has been a fugitive from the law since 1992.
Then there is one from the Boston Herald in which Aunt Zeituni let’s us know what she thinks of her nephew, calling him “your president” to a reporter. You think she still might be smarting for being snubbed and not invited to family functions at the White House (or LOL! at nearby Martha’s Vineyard only a week or so ago!).
Reached at her apartment in a South Boston public housing complex today, Zeituni Onyango said of her brother’s arrest: “Why don’t you go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washingon, D.C. and ask your president? Not me.” She then hung up on a reporter. [She was granted asylum so Obama is technically her president now too!—ed]
If I were Obama, I would be treating these “relatives” nicely, afterall, they surely know stuff about him that the public has never heard before.
Then this is great! NumbersUSA calls on readers to contact Congress to “Plug the Uncle Omar Loophole!”
