  • Obama's uncle freed from custody after drunk-driving arrest

    (CNN) -- An uncle of President Barack Obama who was arrested last month for allegedly operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol has been released from custody.

    Onyango Obama was freed from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody on Thursday under an order of supervision, according to a statement Friday from Brian P. Hale, director of public affairs for ICE. He will be required to check in regularly with immigration authorities, Hale said.

    Obama was arrested in Framingham, Massachusetts, on August 24 after failing a field sobriety test, police Lt. Ronald Brandolini told CNN.

    An officer in an unmarked police cruiser stopped Obama after he failed to make a proper stop at an intersection, according to a statement from Framingham police.

    The arresting officer, Val Krishtal, said Obama had red and glassy eyes, slurred speech and appeared unsteady on his feet, according to the statement. Obama told Krishtal he had consumed two beers, and then failed "several" field sobriety tests, the statement said.

    Obama was arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, failure to yield and operating a motor vehicle to endanger, the statement said.

    According to a a federal law enforcement source who spoke on condition of not being identified, Obama was not legally in the United States and previously has been ordered removed from the country.

      How many headlines this incident would get if his name was anything but Obama?

        Yes, but a better question would be "How many immigration prisoners would be released from custody, if their name wasn't Obama?"

          I would say it would depend on their record , D.O. policy at the time of detention , an individual deportation officer, ICE and judge
          in charge of deciding what to do with detained alien.

          I have read hundreds of BIA and Appeals Court , from aliens who were ultimately deported for scratching their ear and THUS raising suspicion of arresting police officer , all the way to those cases of where someone was almost kicked out of custody after arrest for valid civil violations because nobody wanted to deal with it.

          None of those hundreds of cases I have read had name Obama as a party to a legal proceeding, so nobody ever read about those in newspapers, but I did

          You can do the same: just go to google or various publicly accessible court docket searching engines and read those published decisions. They are published for a reason: for PUBLIC to read and understand the law and its' application, it's not there for lawyers.

          Because you hate Obama you try to make a big nuisance out of traffic stop of his relative that resulted in arrest and supervised release(and, I am absolutely sure you are too illiterate to know what Obamas' politics and policies are, you most likely hate him solely because of his appearance).

          In reality, it's just another case and, under supervised release he must wear a bracelet + regularly report to ICE. Nothing that doesn't happen daily to many other individuals in similar circumstances.

            FRAMINGHAM - The uncle of President Obama arrested here last week on drunken driving and other charges has been a fugitive from deportation since 1992, according to two federal law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case.

              Stupid unique, go chew and swallow your keyboard in rage, Omar Obama is out of jail.

              But , generally speaking, nothing out of ordinary happened. It does routinely happen on a daily basis. He could be arrested and released under supervision regardless of his last name.

                  You really are clueless, unique.
                  Try as you will, it is just undeniable fact that ICE does release from custody some aliens with outstanding removal orders.
                  Such cases could be decided on humanitarian grounds (elderly, physically ill, or aliens with dependent USC relatives etc.) and posting a large amount of bond could be a prerequisite.
                  They also get (in most cases) electronic monitoring bracelets attached to arms or feet and must report to ICE until their next hearing and final decision on the case.

                  And if you have problem with DHS not going after drunk drivers first, may be you should do some research and find out that it was Rehnquist Supreme Court decision that set precedent and ruled that drunk driving (without harm caused to others) is not a felony , nor a crime of moral turpitude or deportable offence by itself.

                  If I was Obama sure I would be as upset as one could be if my uncle did this to me, but it's impossible to claim that anyone else in similar circumstances wouldn't be released if he had different surname or wasn't related to president.
                  Just do some googling of news with keywords 'drunk driving' and 'ice custody release' , you may find out that your 'NOPE' is simply inaccurate and not based on fact.

                      There is NO AMNESTY in action.
                      He probably has a bracelet on his wrist or ankle and will be monitored 24/7 until his next hearing or removal from US.
                      That's NOT an amnesty.

                      If Obama was to use his executive powers on behalf of his uncle, perhaps Omar wouldn't be illegally residing in the US to begin with.

                        Any "monitoring" is irrelevant. The important fact is that the removal order has not been enforced. That is amnesty.

                          Amnesty means:

                          1. A general pardon for offenses, especially political offenses, against a government, often granted before any trial or conviction.
                          2. Law . An act of forgiveness for past offenses, especially to a class of persons as a whole.
                          3. A forgetting or overlooking of any past offense.
                          4. To grant amnesty to; pardon.

                          Dictionary.reference.com

                          It is not pardon or forgiveness. There is no forgetting or overlooking. They are still under order of removal whichever way you look at it.

                            I wonder how many more tribal illegals is the Kenyan hiding. Was his uncle deported yet?
