Apart from a brief online update, the New York Times has yet to report on the saga of Obama’s Uncle Onyango. Obama’s Uncle Onayngo, you may recall, was apprehended for drunk driving in Framingham, Massachusetts while his nephew was vacationing over on Martha’s Vineyard. When apprehended, he announced that he wanted to make his one call to the White House. Uncle Onyango is not big into the news. He hadn’t heard that his nephew was in-state.
The saga of Obama’s Uncle Onyango is interesting in itself. Taken together with the saga of Obama’s Auntie Zeituni, it also tells you just about everything you need to know about the farcical non-enforcement of our immigration laws. Running a background check upon his apprehension, the Framingham police discovered that Uncle Onyango had been subject to a deportation order since 1992. The police turned him over to immigration authorities, who held him in the Plymouth County House of Correction.
Until last week. Last week Uncle Onyango was quietly released from jail. Uncle Onyango’s release entails unresolved mysteries. Immigration officials have refused to disclose the ground for Uncle Onyango’s release. Officials refused to say whether the Uncle Onyango had posted bond, whether they are keeping track of his whereabouts, or even whether they are still seeking his deportation. The Boston Globe reports that it is unclear what happened to Obama after he left the Plymouth County House of Correction – or whether he could be returned to jail.
In an effort to ascertain his status, the Globe apparently tried checking in with Uncle Onyango himself. In Framingham, the people who shared his house said they did not know where he was. A co-worker at Conti Liquors, where Obama worked, said they had not heard of his release.
Michelle Malkin asks: “Where in the world is Uncle Omar?” (as Obama referred to Uncle Onyango in Dreams From My Father). She has also posted the Photoshop rework of Where’s Waldo? over at the left courtesy of Roger B.
