President Obama's illegal alien Uncle Omar is out of jail. Since he violated a 1992 deportation order to return to his native Kenya, Onyango Obama has been living in the United States illegally. For nearly two decades, Onyango spent his days peacefully in Framingham, a Boston suburb, and the site of his arrest last month for drunken driving and other related charges.

Although his blood alcohol count was nearly twice the legal limit, Obama pleaded not guilty in Framingham District Court to drunken driving, negligent operation and failing to yield.

Onyango, now 67, first came to the United States in 1963 to attend a Massachusetts prep school. Shortly thereafter, Onyango dropped out. In 1989, Onyango was ordered to leave the country. His subsequent appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals was denied which resulted in his final deportation orders.

Despite the high-profile nature of the Onyango case, virtually no further details are available other than the announcement that he was released from the Plymouth County House of Corrections. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement website confirmed that Obama is "not in custody."

The Boston media reports that federal immigration officials are mum.

When pressed for information, Brian P. Hale, an ICE spokesman, said that "privacy laws" prevent him from elaborating.

But immigration law experts I spoke to last week insist that "privacy" is not the law, but a ruse that is particularly effective given Uncle Omar's blood relationship to the president.

More importantly, since they have not filed an appeal in federal court, aliens like Onyango who ignore deportation orders have no recourse. In Uncle Omar's case and others like his, there's no legal process to reopen any claim or submit a new claim. The only legal avenue to proceed is for ICE to execute the removal order. However, ICE cancelled the detainer, for no apparent or lawful reason, and informed the agency holding Obama that he was free to go.

At the time of his arrest, Uncle Omar allegedly told police, "I think I will call the White House."

The White House said the president didn't anticipate that Onyango would receive any special treatment. That's ludicrous. ICE, possibly via the White House, has already shown Onyango favoritism. Onyango is one of the first to benefit from Obama's backdoor amnesty adopted last month that protects "non-violent" offenders and staves off their deportations.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, has the right idea. King called for a Congressional investigation that will require Onganyo, assuming he can be found, and his lawyer Margaret Wong to testify under subpoena.

Barack Obama must be livid. Uncle Omar's highly publicized drunken driving charges come when the president's administrative amnesty, which releases some illegal immigrants previously ordered deported, is under fire. Yet there's no escaping the fact that if Onganyo isn't back in Kenya by November, the president will suffer at the ballot box.

    At least he didn't subject us to another "beer summit".
    The beer summit told me everything I needed to know about our president.
    I believe he is a racist---unable to be objective---that makes him unsuitable to lead.
    Just saying.

    Who cares? Everyone has an uncle that they are ashamed of. This should be the least of his worries come next November.
