“Now that Mr. Onyango’s criminal case has completed, ICE has communicated, in accordance with standard procedure, with the attorney of record regarding his removal pursuant to a previous final order by an immigration judge,” Brian P. Hale, Director of Public Affairs for ICE, said in a statement.

Obama bolstered his case with a letter from his employer, Conti Liquors, as well as proof that he’d enrolled in an alcohol-treatment program, reported the Boston Herald.

“He met all of the criteria,” Massachusetts Department of Transportation press secretary Sara Lavoie told the Boston Herald.

Applicants for a Massachusetts driver's license are required to present a verifiable Social Security number.

What documents did he present to be emplyed @ CONTI Liquors. He has a valid SSN and drivers license but to use these he must claim US citizenship. I like to see his I-9 he filled out and so should ICE!
