Obama's uncle, told to leave the US 20 years ago, gets new hearing12/5/2012
Onyango Obama, the uncle of President Obama, is getting a new deportation hearing, 20 solid years after he was ordered to leave the United States. Onyango, referred to as "Uncle Omar" in the president’s memoir, is a Kenya native who moved to the U.S. in the 1960s to attend school. In 1992, an immigration judge gave him his literal walking papers, signing a deportation order that Onyango pretty much ignored (although he later tried to reverse it). His immigration issues were largely overlooked until last year, when he was arrested for drunken driving in Framingham, Mass. Onyango's case has been sent to the Executive Office for Immigration Review; a spokesman "[declined] to discuss" the reason why. [Source]
