  • Bloggings: BIA Reopens Deportation Case for President Obama's Uncle Omar by Matthew Kolken

    Bloggings on Deportation and Removal

    by Matthew Kolken

    BIA Reopens Deportation Case for President Obama's Uncle Omar

    The Boston Globe reports the following:

    Last week, the Board of Immigration Appeals granted Onyango Obama’s request to reopen his immigration case based in part on his contention that his prior lawyer was ineffective, according to a government official with direct knowledge of the case. Obama’s new lawyers have also argued that the 68-year-old Obama has lived in the United States for nearly half a century and deserves a chance to make his case.

    The Executive Director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association Crystal Williams commented that: “With an outstanding order and a legally fuzzy plea, it’s pretty unusual for the board to reopen.”

    This is the second instance where one of President Obama's relatives has had a deportation case reopened. The President's aunt, Zeituni Onyango, also had her case reopened, and won political asylum in 2010.

      What about other people in the same situation. I don't think this is fair and has no grounds. What about all the illegal aliens that are in the same situation.
      I need an answer and has to be fair.
