Not the Obama you’re probably thinking of. It’s only the president’s illegal alien uncle. And he only got arrested for drunk driving, after running his SUV into a police officer’s vehicle.

So, the president’s uncle is an illegal alien drunk driver who hit a cop. No big deal.

A number of media outlets have already reported that an illegal immigrant from Kenya by the name of Onyango Obama, 67, was arrested last week on Wednesday after he rammed his SUV into a police car in Framingham, Massachusetts.

He was later charged with DUI among other violations. I spoke to Framingham Public Information Officer Lieutenant Delaney who told me that when Onyango Obama was asked at booking if he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail, the Kenyan immigrant replied: “I think I will call the White House.”

That’s the Washington Times‘ Kerry Picket reporting. She digs up some 2008 vintage stories to show that this Obama is indeed Barack Obama’s uncle, who moved to the US from Kenya 27 or so years ago and was never seen by the Kenyan side of the Obama family again.

That makes two (known) Obama relatives living in the US who are illegal aliens, Uncle Omar (as the alledged drunk driver Onyango Obama is called) and Aunt Zeituni, who lives on welfare furnished by US taxpayers. Obama’s father also nearly faced deportation, when Harvard sought to have him booted (and dubbed him a “slippery character”). Obama Sr. did live in the US for a time as an illegal alien himself — he overstayed after his visa expired. So that’s three (known)* Obamas who have lived in the US in violation of US immigration law. Being a scofflaw seem to run in the family.

Is it out of bounds to wonder if President Obama enacted his amnesty by fiat in order to keep his welfare queen aunt and drunk driving uncle from having to face deportation? Well, I’m wondering it anyway,** along with noting the obvious political benefits Obama hopes to reap from his lawlessness. Obama’s fiat put a police officer and Massachusetts drivers in very unnecessary jeopardy, with Obama’s drunk uncle who ought to be in Kenya menacing American roads. It will be fascinating to see how Uncle Omar’s case gets handled.

Bottom line: The Obama family apparently doesn’t respect American rule of law at all. Too bad one of them got elected president.

Updates: * — I keep saying “known” because every time we learn about another Obama relative living here in the US, they’re here illegally.

** — Upon further review, this theory is obviously wrong. As proreason points out in the comments, Barack Obama hasn’t shown any sign that he cares much about that side of his family at all, except for his father. So he isn’t granting mass amnesty by fiat for any family reason. Just cynical and lawless politics.
