GOP Rep. Steve King (R-IA) – a stalwart opponent of illegal alien amnesty, came out with a strong response to Barack Obama’s “Uncle Omar” – the 20-year fugitive from justice busted for DUI in Massachussetts 2 weeks ago, who was then summarily released by ICE a few days ago. This follows the outrage of Obama’s Aunt Zeituni mooching off welfare and public housing for years in Boston, before being outed – and then getting asylum in an unprecedented closed immigration hearing.
As Judiciary Chariman Lamar Smith said Friday, “It appears there is a double standard — one for President Obama’s family and one for everyone else.”
Pulling no punches, King demands hearings on Obama’s “drunken Uncle Omar”…
Chairman Smith should permit Rep. King to conduct these hearings as soon as possible.
Putting aside the issue of illegal immigration, we simply cannot believe how unseemly this all is. These are the blood relatives of the President of the United States – a man with an $11 million net worth – who wrote lovingly of his “Uncle Omar” and “Aunt Zeituni” is his book “Dreams from my Father”. Yet he sat idly by while the two of them stayed for years in this nation illegally, bilking the taxpayers for welfare and public housing, and committing an unknown number of additional crimes.
Why didn’t he ever urge them to go through the process of complying with Federal law? Why didn’t he ask his Uncle Omar to turn himself in to authorities and set things right before he put himself – drunk – behind the wheel of a car. Omar could have easily killed someone, as an illegal did in another Mass. town a week earlier. Why didn’t he send Aunt Zeituni – mentioned 28 times in his book – a couple of bucks from time to time so she didn’t have to live off the public dole (while Michelle’s Mom lives in the White House)?
In other words, why didn’t he take steps to keep this from becoming a shameful incident for the entire nation.
Have you no shame, Mr. President?
