In Massachusetts, the uncle of President Barack Obama has been charged for driving under the influence. Onyango Obama was arrested in Framingham after police arrested him after making a rolling stop on a corner, nearly causing a cruiser to bump into his SUV.
He is the brother of Zeituni Onyango, the president’s aunt who last year won the right to stay in the United States after a deportation order was issued against her. The problem is, the presidential uncle is an illegal immigrant, without the proper paperwork for a legal stay in the country.
When given is obligatory phone call, Obama said, “I think I will call the White House.” He is currently being held without bail on a detention order issued by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Many immigration pundits are closely monitoring the case as the main character is a known relative of the President and is an illegal immigrant.
