Police booking photo of Onyango Obama
President Obama’s uncle – under arrest for allegedly driving drunk – has had a Social Security number and Massachusetts driving license for nearly two decades, according to a new report today in the Boston Herald.
WND reported over the weekend how Onyango Obama, an illegal alien from Kenya, was arrested in Framingham, Mass., after allegedly driving under the influence and nearly slamming his SUV into a police car last Wednesday.
According to the MetroWest Daily News, Obama, 67, failed a sobriety test after the crash, registering a blood-alcohol level of .14, when the state limit it .08.
This Obama shares not only his last name with President Obama, but his first name, Onyango, is the last name of the president’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was also an illegal alien living in Massachusetts.
The Washington Times reported that when asked at booking if he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail, Onyango Obama replied: “I think I will call the White House.”
Now the Herald reports Onyango has held a valid Massachusetts driver’s license and Social Security number since 1992, according to state Registry of Motor Vehicles spokesman Michael Verseckes.
Police reports explain Onyango had “red and glassy eyes,” was wobbly legged, and was “slurring” his speech.
The report said a marked cruiser pulled him over about a mile from his house.
He initially denied drinking but later confessed to having “beers” when police said they smelled alcohol, the police report said.
“It was clear that he was moderately unsteady on his feet,” Framingham Officer Val Krishtal wrote in the report.
He was ordered held without bail on a federal immigration warrant after his arraignment. The newspaper said court papers reveal he was the subject of a previous deportation order. He was being held in the Plymouth House of Correction.
Cleveland immigration attorney Margaret Wong is representing Onyango and spokesman Mike Rogers told the newspaper he “wouldn’t know how” Onyango got the documentation.
