Prez Obama's Uncle

Faces Judge for DUI ...

Deportation on Hold, For Now

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.

hello    

If he is here illegally, why should he be protected under our constitutional rights? Regardless of whether he is found guilty or innocent of the DUI, he should be deported simply for being here illegally. I am so tired of people coming to my country illegally and thinking that our laws shouldn't apply to them. There are too many bleeding heart liberals that think the illegal are entitled to the same benefits as US citizens.

WTF? What do they mean "he will be deported if he is found guilty"? He is here illegally and should be deported now. Why is he being given a pass? He and the Aunt should be gone instead of being a drain to taxpayers. Where is the reporting on this by the lame street media?

Wow, look at all the "Christian" Republicans just drooling over this story with their hateful, ignorant comments.
They are the same ones who boo gay soldiers, cheer the death of the uninsured(they are only pro-life until you are born), and foam at the mouth over executions and waterboarding.
And they aren't racist? Their comments sure are...

Can't wait to see how many "dislikes" I get!!

Too bad B.O. can't be deported back to his homeland, Kenya. What a disgrace as a president. So sad that that many people were so ignorant to fall for his smoke screen and vote for him. One term for sure!

Watch him get away, quietly. NO way he gets the same justice as everyone else. Obama has him & all the other ILLEGALS covered.

Why are we wasting taxpayer $$$ on a DUI trial when he should just be deported in the first place like he was ordered back in 1992?

Illegal and was busted for DUI. That's a green light for deportation now. You would think the POS would at least have some respect. Obama should set an example, put his money where his mouth is and deport this turd and his aunt. Then admit he was born in Kenya.
