President Barack Obama's uncle appeared in court this morning for a DUI charge -- and continued to dodge the deportation bullet ... while his attorney questions the "legality of the traffic stop."
Onyango Obama's attorney filed a motion in a Massachusetts courtroom -- claiming police had no reason to pull over Onyango, and therefore violated his constitutional rights, when he was arrested August 24 for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The judge continued the case until January 12, 2012.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement took custody of Onyango after the arrest, but he was later released. He could be deported back to Kenya if found guilty.
