Fox News’ Jesse Watters recently tracked down Onyango Obama, President Barack Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle, in Framingham, Mass., where he is currently working at a local liquor store.
What ensued was an on-camera battle of wits, as Watters attempted to get Onyango to speak about his citizenship status. When the Fox News producer walked into the store where Onyango works, the president’s uncle immediately demanded that he leave.
Of course, that didn’t stop the reporter from continuing to push for answers. After Watters was rebuked by Onyango, the producer and interviewer said, “You don’t have to get angry with me. I just have a quick question.”
Onyango’s response? “No questions. Thank you.”
But the dialogue didn’t end there. As Watters followed Onyango around the store, he had little luck in convincing him to go on the record to discuss his immigration status. Eventually, the president’s uncle threatened the Fox News employee, telling him that he called the cops and that they would soon be coming to remedy the situation.
“Do you think you deserve citizenship?” Watters — clearly undeterred — asked. “I’m not here to bust your chops.”
Onyango continued his refusal, again commanding that the producer to exit the liquor store. He repeatedly said that he didn’t care if Watters dropped “from heaven or hell” and that he wanted him to leave. The interviewer complied, but only after capturing the fascinating debate on film.

Prior to heading inside the liquor store, Watters also spoke with a number of locals. While some believe that the president’s uncle deserves to be deported like any other citizen who is caught here illegally (he was also arrested in Aug. 2011 for driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit), others disagree.
With the 2011 charges against Onyango inevitably being dismissed so long as he stays out of trouble, many have maintained that he is being given special treatment. TheBlaze explored this issue of preferential treatment in detail last year.
