House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is calling for President Barack Obama’s “drunken uncle” to testify before Congress.
Onyango Obama, who allegedly does not have a valid visa, was arrested in Framingham, Massachusetts, on August 24 and charged in Framingham District Court with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He is the half-brother of President Obama’s father.
King suspects that Onyango Obama will get favorable deportation proceedings due to his relation to the president.
“We have to bring drunken ‘Uncle Omar’ in front of the House Judiciary Committee, drill down into this, and tell America what’s going on,” the Iowa Republican told Fox News’ Chris Stirewalt Monday.
“I watched as President Obama’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, also evaded [Immigration and Customs Enforcement],” King added. “The sympathy, the bleeding heart, of [Department of Homeland Security Director] Janet Napolitano decided to use an administrative authority to grant President Obama’s aunt asylum.”
