Given the choice, what would you prefer: Four more years of this lush remaining in our country or his deadbeat nephew occupying the White House? Well, so long as this drunk doesn’t run over any innocent people while driving drunk, his remaining here will do a lot less damage.
Booting President Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle out of the country could be a painstaking process that might drag on for years and may not even end in deportation if the aging Kenyan can convince the feds he should be granted asylum, immigration experts said.
The Herald learned yesterday that Onyango Obama, 67, is being summonsed to the Burlington offices for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement next week to arrange his pending deportation. It’s just the beginning of what is sure to be a high-profile case.
“His nephew is the leader of the Democratic party in the U.S. and the leader of our political system, so he could argue there could be a lot of people outside the U.S. who could target him,” said Boston immigration attorney Desmond FitzGerald. “In Kenya, they bombed our embassy, so there’s probably really good evidence that there are groups that are hostile to our country.”
Well, there are plenty of Obamas still there living in huts and nobody has harmed them, so this makes no sense.
The president’s uncle will first have to overturn his deportation order and then petition for asylum, a two-step process that could last four years and cost Obama up to $10,000, FitzGerald said.
That’s still less than the $12,500 immigration officials estimated it costs taxpayers per deportation at a congressional hearing last year. Last fiscal year, the U.S. deported nearly 400,000 people.
Efforts to reach Obama’s immigration lawyer, Margaret Wong — who successfully represented Obama’s sister, Zeituni Onyango, in her quest for asylum in South Boston in 2010 — were unsuccessful yesterday.
Obama, who has been living in the U.S. illegally since 1963, was ordered deported in 1992 but remained stateside. He lived quietly in Framingham for years until an August arrest for drunken driving unearthed his immigration status. Last week, he admitted in court that police had enough evidence to secure a conviction.
How on earth can someone manage to remain here illegally for 49 years? And how many more illegal Obamas are out there?
