Compare and contrast: The medialeft hounds NM Gov. Susana Martinez over her illegal alien grandparents, while giving President Obama a pass over his illegal alien uncle, accused of drunk driving and now set loose on the public.
Officials released President Obama’s uncle from Plymouth County jail yesterday after holding him for more than two weeks on an immigration detainer for violating an order to return to his native Kenya in 1992.
US officials refused to disclose any other information about Onyango Obama, who remained in the United States undetected until Framingham police arrested him Aug. 24 on drunken driving and other charges.
Yesterday, federal immigration officials refused to say whether the 67-year-old Framingham resident posted bond, whether they are keeping track of his whereabouts, or even whether they are still seeking his deportation, raising questions about public accountability in the case.
The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement website confirmed Obama’s release by listing him as “not in custody.’’
When he was arrested, Uncle Omar expressed a desire to call the White House. Now he’s released, whereabouts unknown, and public servants are refusing to comment on the case, citing privacy policies that are not law. That smells like a cover-up.
Did the White House intervene? The public has a right to know, and the White House has a duty to answer.
