Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

BIA Reopens Deportation Case for President Obama's Uncle Omar

Rate this Entry

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.
