OBAMA’S UNCLE OMAR SURRENDERS LICENSE FOR 45 DAYS
(BUT HE CAN STILL DRIVE TO AND FROM WORK!)
Barack Obama’s Uncle Omar – 67-year-old Onyango Obama – has surrendered his driving license for 45 days after entering a please in his drunk-driving charge where he admitted that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him without pleading guilty. However, he is still allowed to drive to and from his job as the manager of a liquor store.
Uncle Omar is the half-brother of Obama’s late father and the second Obama relative discovered to be illegally present in the United States. He was arrested in Framingham, Mass., in August of last year after a police officer said he made a rolling stop at a stop sign and nearly collided with the officer’s SUV and then discovered to be drunk failing several field sobriety tests with a blood alcohol content nearly twice the legal limit. He also asked to ‘call the White House.’
Uncle Omar, who like the president’s father is from Kenya, is appealing a deportation order that dates back to 1992 after he failed to renew his visa application. Uncle Omar first ‘moved’ to America in 1963 as part of an Airlift Africa project, where Kenyan students were flown to the U.S. to study at American universities.
HUMAN RIGHTS GROUP ACCUSES U.S. OF ABUSES ALONG U.S.-MEXICO BORDER
The human rights group Amnesty International USA recently released a report, titled “In Hostile Terrain: Human Rights Violations in Immigration Enforcement in the U.S. Southwest,” in which they condemn U.S. policing along the Mexican border as discriminatory and contributing to the deaths of illegal immigrants.
The Department of Homeland Security disputed Amnesty International’s findings even though the U.S. Justice Department recently accused Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio of ‘systemic racial profiling’ in its efforts to enforce immigration law. Homeland Security Department spokesman, Matthew Chandler, said the report was based "almost entirely on either outdated information or anonymous anecdotes that can be neither investigated nor resolved.”
Amnesty International is also urging the U.S. government to suspend all immigration enforcement programs to ensure they do have the “effect of leading to the deaths of migrants” though they failed to make any recommendations for improvement to current border security and immigration law enforcement policies.
