Obama's illegal immigrant half-uncle fears that he will be deported if Romney wins the election
In 2011, it was reported that Onyango "Omar" Obama, 68, had been a fugitive from deportation since 1992 after moving to the United States decades ago. His whereabouts had been unknown for years, but in August 2011 he was arrested for driving under the influence and other motoring offenses after swerving in front of a police cruiser and nearly causing an accident. Going through his files police found he had violated an order to go back to his native Kenya 20 years ago and, according to a police report, told officers: "I think I will call the White House". He was quietly released from jail in September 2011 and the immigration agency refused to discuss his case, which is still believed to be pending. After receiving a 45-day driving suspension, Obama was allowed to renew his diving license in May 2012, following a court hearing in March 2012.
