Obama’s Uncle Makes First Court Appearance

FRAMINGHAM (AP) — President Barack Obama’s uncle has completed a brief appearance in a Massachusetts court on a drunken driving charge.

A Framingham District Court judge on Thursday scheduled Onyango Obama to return to court Nov. 17.

Obama and his lawyer refused comment outside court.

He pleaded not guilty after he was arrested last month in Framingham.

WBZ-TV’s Paul Burton reports.

Police allege he registered a reading of 0.14 percent on a blood-alcohol breath test, above the state’s legal driving limit of 0.08 percent.

Obama, originally from Kenya, is the half-brother of the president’s late father.

He was initially held without bail on a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on allegations he violated an order to return to Kenya.

He was released and ordered to regularly check in with immigration officials.

    Obama’s lawyer said he started back to work at the liquor store where he works. Ummmm wait a second!! Isn’t it ILLEGAL for Massachusetts business owners to employ Illegals?

    This is SO ridiculous! It has been determined the guy is an ILLEGAL immigrant, yet he still gets rights??

    Ship him off on the next plane – but take all his money first for back taxes and wasting taxpayers money. This should be done with ALL illiegals – follow the proper channels for citizenship or get sent home when found out. Oh, and when the time comes, DO NOT re-elect Deval Patrick. Idiot. Key word “ILLEGAL”!!

    meanwhile, a 19 year old student in New York is being deported.
    She was brought here as a baby by her mom illegally

    She should just move up here to Boston and be illegal in plain sight
