Email Shows ICE Delayed Deporting Obama’s Illegal Immigrant Uncle

Joel Gehrke, Washington Examiner, July 16, 2012

Emails exchanged by top U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirm that ICE delayed the deportation of President Obama’s uncle, an illegal immigrant, and that they had a close eye on Mitt Romney’s view of the issue.

“Mr. Onyango is subject to a final order of deportation. ICE had granted him a stay of deportation effective until June 5, 2012,” Brian Hale, director of ICE’s public affairs, explained in an April 1, 2012 email to ICE Director John Morton that was obtained by Judicial Watch. “The stay was granted to allow him to attend pending criminal proceedings and to seek reopening of his deportation proceedings, which concluded before the Board of Immigration Appeals on January 29, 1992.”


“It certainly appears that Obama’s uncle is receiving favorable treatment from the Obama administration, which explains that we had to sue in federal court to obtain this material,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “ICE should have deported Onyango immediately, especially after his DUI. We now know that the Obama administration decided not to deport Obama’s uncle despite his being a criminal and being on the lam for at least 20 years.”

  • It comes as no surprise that their is special treatment for the Boy King’s relatives. It was the same way with his “aunt” who looked like a robot puppet version of a Dark Crystal or Neverending Story monster. Good ‘Ol Aunt  Zeituni. She was living in America in Section 8 housing collecting more welfare than you could shake a stick at and she knew was breaking the law the entire time.

    This repulsive LEECH was supposed to be out the country in 2004 but she illegally remained for another 6 years in Boston and she’s still here! “Zeituni Onyango was granted a waiver of deportation on May 17, 2010 by the United States and is currently a legal resident.”

    The real sick thing of it all? She wrote a book about her illegal stay in a 1st World nation in which she collected every form of gibsmuhdat “free money” possible. The name? “Tears of Abuse.”


    I’d give her something to cry about.

    • Rocky Bass,

    I’ll keep his harmless uncle. It’s not going to hurt much in the Grand Plan or scheme of Obama’s, is it?

    Deporting Obama though… should be our first priority.  Back to Kenya or Chicago….who cares.

    We know this one, just like his Ont, didn’t arrive wearing chains. Yet they still came.
