Romney tells Talk Radio host: President's uncle, Onyango Obama, must heed deportation order

Boston talk radio host, Howie Carr, asked Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, on Wednesday, whether he believes President Obama's Kenyan-born uncle, Onyango Obama, who was arrested earlier this year on DUI charges, and who previously defied deportation orders to return to his native country, Kenya, should be deported back to Kenya.

"If the laws of the United States say he should be deported, and I presume they do, then of course we should follow those laws. And the answer is 'yes'," Romney responded.

Shortly after his arrest on DUI charges, Onyango Obama was asked whether he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail.

"I think I will call the White House," he replied.

However, he was later detained without bail by Federal immigration officials for defying an earlier deportation order to return to his native country, Kenya.

But, a little more than two weeks after his arrest, he was quietly released from prison.

Federal immigration officials refused to divulge whether he posted bail, whether they were keeping track of his whereabouts, or whether they were still seeking his deportation........

And, I suppose we'll never know whether he made that call to the White House or not......
