The plot thickens in a story The Blaze first reported on Sunday. We first told you that Barack Obama's alleged uncle was arrested last week for DUI in Framingham, MA, despite being wanted for deportation. Now, local news is reporting that Onyango Obama -- or "Uncle Omar" -- has had a valid social security number for "at least" 19 years, and also a valid driver's license.
President Obama’s accused drunken-driving uncle — who was busted after a near collision with a Framingham cop — has had a valid Social Security number for at least 19 years, despite being an illegal immigrant ordered to be deported back to Kenya, the Herald has learned.
The president’s 67-year-old uncle, Obama Onyango, has had a valid Massachusetts driver’s license and Social Security number since at least 1992, said Registry of Motor Vehicles spokesman Michael Verseckes.
Onyango Obama was arrested last week and charged with DUI. "According to a police report," The Blaze's Madeleine Morgenstern reported on Sunday, "he rolled through a stop sign and then made a quick left turn, requiring the squad car and another vehicle to slam on their breaks to avoid hitting him."
Below is a copy of the police report from Fox News, which notes Onyango is being held on an "ICE Detainer:"
Asked by the Herald to respond to the arrest, MA Gov. Deval Patrick didn't mince words: “You know my stance: Illegal is illegal. We need comprehensive immigration reform.”
It remains to be seen if the president agrees.
