A federal immigration judge Tuesday, Dec. 3 allowed President Obama’s uncle, Onyango “Omar” Obama, to remain in the United States instead of being deported back to Kenya.
US Immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro said he believed Onyango Obama was a gentleman, a good neighbor, paid his taxes, and met the criteria for legal permanent residency, commonly known as a green card, reported Boston.com
During the hearing, Onyango Obama testified, “I do have a nephew. He’s the president of the United States.”
Shapiro is the same immigration judge who approved an asylum request for Onyango Obama’s sister, Zeituni, in 2010, reported Boston.com.
