Email Shows Deportation of Obama's Uncle Held Up by DHS
"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," the Washington Examiner says.
"'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.'"
