Officials released President Obama’s uncle (pictured) from Plymouth County jail on Friday after holding him for more than two weeks on an immigration detainer for violating an order to return to his native Kenya in 1992.
US officials refused to disclose any other information about Onyango Obama (pictured), who remained in the United States undetected until Framingham police arrested him Aug. 24 on drunken driving and other charges.
The president's uncle has received 'backdoor amnesty' despite previous White House assurance that Onyango Obama would be treated like anyone else.
It appears there is a double standard — one for President Obama’s family and one for everyone else according to Congressman Lamar Smith. “Last year, President Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt was granted asylum and now his illegal immigrant uncle has been released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody, even though he was arrested by authorities for drunk driving.”
