The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the Department of Homeland Security for records pertaining to President Barack Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle Onyango Obama, aka “Uncle Omar.”
“It’s a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit and it asks what a lot of people are wondering, which is what was going on with the administration and its handling of Barack Obama’s Uncle’s [immigration] status,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told The Daily Caller.
Onyango Obama was arrested in Farmington, Mass. in August on drunk driving charges. In March Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said they would continue deportation proceedings for Obama, who was reportedly told to leave in 1992, but stayed in the U.S.
According to the Washington Times, after being booked for his August DUI, Onyongo Obama was asked about bail and said, “I think I will call the White House.”
In September Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request for documents from ICE, including “all records of communications, contacts and correspondence between ICE” and the following entities: the Framingham Police Department, the White House, the Executive Office of the President and the Justice Department.
