Hmmm! Today I was planning to tell you anyway that President Obama’s long-lost (not any more) illegal alien uncle had been given a reprieve from deportation and permitted to stay in Boston, work and drive a car.
And, now I have a second story from Boston (hat tip: Henry) that involves ICE (and the TSA) screwing up in Boston.
Emails exchanged by top U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirm that ICE delayed the deportation of President Obama’s uncle, an illegal immigrant, and that they had a close eye on Mitt Romney’s view of the issue.
“Mr. Onyango is subject to a final order of deportation. ICE had granted him a stay of deportation effective until June 5, 2012,” Brian Hale, director of ICE’s public affairs, explained in an April 1, 2012 email to ICE Director John Morton that was obtained by Judicial Watch. “The stay was granted to allow him to attend pending criminal proceedings and to seek reopening of his deportation proceedings, which concluded before the Board of Immigration Appeals on January 29, 1992.”
The emails also show that Hale kept Morton apprised of how Onyango Obama’s case was playing in the media.

Illegal aliens getting flight training in Boston area!
It would seem that ICE and the TSA aren’t communicating.
From CNS News:
(CNSNews.com) — The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved flight training for 25 illegal aliens at a Boston-area flight school that was owned by yet another illegal alien, according to the Government Accountability Office.
The illegal-alien flight-school attendees included eight who had entered the country illegally and 17 who had overstayed their allowed period of admission into the United States, according to an audit by the GAO.
Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses.
Discovery of the trouble at the flight school began when local police–not federal authorities–pulled over the owner of the school on a traffic violation and were able to determine that he was an illegal alien.

Completely off topic, but it just occurred to me that President Obama might be able to quell at least some of the controversy about his ‘daddy’ by doing a DNA test of Uncle Omar (the brother of Barack Obama the Kenyan who helped his younger half-brother Omar get to a Boston area prep school in the first place). When Barack the Kenyan was deported from Boston (when there was such a thing as an immigration authority that did deportations), Omar stayed and “disappeared” into the “community.”
