Obama’s uncle gets Mass. driver’s license back

BOSTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s uncle has been granted a hardship driver’s license by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles just a week after he lost the right to drive for 45 days in a deal in a drunken driving case.

The license granted Monday allows 67-year-old Onyango Obama to drive from noon to midnight to get to work as manager of a Framingham liquor store.

A Registry spokeswoman tells the Boston Herald that Obama “met all of the criteria” to qualify for the hardship license, including proof he was enrolled in an alcohol treatment program.

Obama is the half brother of the president’s late father. He was arrested in August.

He pleaded to sufficient facts last week.

Onyango Obama is from Kenya. He’s appealing a deportation order.

What is this country coming to, when 11 attorney generals of different states file an ‘Amicus Brief’ that in essence said what has been stated from the very first, that local immigration enforcement can succeed in reducing the illegal population. These states have ganged up on the frontier state of Arizona, that are the epicenter of the illegal alien invasion. They have suffered the most from court ordered unfunded mandates, that all 50 states must obey laws of educating illegal alien children, paying for uncompensated mandates for medical care. The federal government refuses to ignore the consequences of the daily crossings of illegal aliens that has literary turned into millions. That this administration keeps soaking the American public to pay for their welfare of people, who have scorned our immigration laws. Not satisfied with that Obama and his gremlins are going to force through this backdoor amnesty while the Republicans sit on their hands and do little or nothing. Their pleading message to the high court, as stated by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman “Because Arizona cannot compel the federal government to remove Undocumented residents, SB 1070’s provisions have a primary effect of redirecting undocumented immigrants to other states.”

Well this nincompoop should have thought of that, when more competent states decided to enforce their own policing laws, when the Obama czars in Washington have adamantly ignored the laws as implicated by the US Constitution. That States like California, Nevada deserve all the fleeing foreign nationals that are now squatting in their communities. They have already favored giving food stamps, section 8 housing and a whole wealth of extras to aliens, with “foothold babies”. Only Congress has the authority to enact laws governing changes in Immigration and Naturalization. Whereas according to the national press the Obama administration is proposing to make it easier for illegal aliens who are family members of American citizens to apply for legal permanent residency. In Article I, Section 8 in creating the authority of the Congress, “To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization.” Thus from a Constitutional stand point it is the responsibility of Congress to establish all laws and rules of naturalization or immigration. The core thought of the 14th Amendment which interpreted with several other provisions establishes in the Constitution confirms that the intent of the Founders was that only citizens of the United States whether by birthright or naturalized are granted the rights and privileges that are available here. Once again Obama and socialist liberal staff are treading on the laws, which made this country great.

We must remove the Obama administration, before we become a nation of beggars, in the eyes of the world? Take a few minutes and read the news editorials that the Socialist and Liberal newsmakers don't want you to see at AMERICAN PATROL, www.americanpatrol.com. Also follow the U.S. sovereignty web site of NUMBERSUSA, www.numbersusa.com. Learn the stomach heaving costs to all Americans from illegal immigration. Join the local Tea Party in your area or phone your Representative in Washington, to stop this madness. We still have time to teach these arrogant politicians a lesson in humility, and unseat them from their comfortable Democrat and Republican offices. The Washington switchboard number so you can insist on your will and not the special interests at 202-224-3121. These so & so are going to keep treading on our Constitutional rights until the public speaks out with one voice.

The House Republicans saying President Obama is making an end run around Congress.

“President Obama and his administration are bending long established rules to put illegal immigrants ahead of the interests of American citizens,” said Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. “It seems President Obama plays by his own rules."

We can only hope whoever wins the presidential election, follows the will of the American people and stand by the laws and not giving an inch to the Church hierarchy, Union bosses, radical minority influences and the special interests. It seems that ordinary American have no say in their rights anymore. Obama more or less behind closed doors forced through his nationalized health care program, when 68 of Americans say—NO! Unknown numbers of illegal aliens, people with no working ethic and the Americans who think they deserve something for nothing, while the rest of us pay their tab. isn’t about time both sides of the house and senate, worked for the Public who pay their salaries and benefits.

Be reassured that if the TEA PARTY “THE PEOPLE’S PARTY” make great headway, in removing the unconcerned lawmakers who are catering to illegal aliens, that the laws on the books will be strictly adhered too? That will include the immediate removal of many in Congress who refuse to enforce our immigration laws. Then states as Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina and those other states that will adjoin will no longer be hounded in their “Witch Hunt” by the Department of Justice cronies. Favoritism--such as it appears to be with President Obama’s Uncle, who arrested in a DUI charge gets to drive all the same. Shouldn’t he be held for deportation, since he has been in the country illegally since 1992?

Not necessarily just the politicians, but state lawmakers and other elected officials, who have passed Sanctuary City ordinances, not amending the “foothold baby citizenship law” and a whole measure of laws shoved down taxpayers throats, as the Dream Acts, Chain migration of relatives, that eventually the man/women in the street gets the bill. Every prudent US citizen and permanent resident must demand from Congress a mandatory E-Verify electronic authentication program, linked with the Secure Communities system of locating illegal aliens in the workplace and equally effective running down criminals by verifying their fingerprints through ICE and FBI data bases. That we must insist on at least one official piece of documentation, such as a driver’s license for people to vote, specifically in this election paramount to the survival of a Democratic country, not taken over by a socialist agenda.

One wrinkle in your logic, Brit. If you deported all the aliens, or asked them to self-deport as Mr Romney suggests, then all of the republicans wont have any housekeepers or lawn maintenance. My goodness, Mitt said in one debate that he had to fire a lawn service because they employed illegals, AND HES RUNNING FOR PRES FOR PETES SAKE!
I suggest you read the book, FAST FOOD NATION. The author exposes the largest food company, Iowa Beef Processors, that bus aliens up to iowa to work in their beef processing plant, then lets them go before 6 months, else they pay benefits.

Now, i will agree with you on one point. The legislators that did nothing, the party of no, the do-nothing congress, that are "scheduled" to be in session for 3 days, and off 4... should be voted out.

TTT At least Romney has some sort of plan for immigration. That foreigner in the WH doesn't have a plan because if he did, he would have to leave to.
