Steve King wants congressional hearings on Obama’s ‘drunken Uncle Omar’

Last month, Onyango Obama, half-brother to the President Obama’s father, was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and then held by authorities due to an outstanding deportation last month. He was released last Thursday. Even before his release, House Republicans were already issuing statements calling the arrest a potential conflict of interest, with Rep. Louie Gohmert (Texas) going so far as to accuse the administration of nepotistic treatment worthy of a “Third World corrupt government.”

Now, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is accusing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Secretary Janet Napolitano of engaging in preferential treatment by releasing Onyango Obama. On Fox News, King said that “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 accusations of double standards come at a time when the administration has declared its intent to use its power of prosecutorial discretion to grant indefinite stays of deportation on many undocumented immigrants. King, House Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith (Texas) and other immigration-enforcement hawks in Congress are jumping on Onyango Obama as a way to paint deportation reform as an erosion of the rule of law.

They have also pointed to Zeituni Onyango, Obama’s aunt, who was living in the United States without authorization but was granted asylum in 2010. King says Zeituni’s asylum was a product of the “bleeding heart” of Napolitano, in spite of the fact that the order to grant Zeituni Onyango political asylum was issued by an immigration judge, not Napolitano herself.
