GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he would deport President Barack Obama's uncle, who authorities say was arrested in August for DUI near Boston.
Onyango "Omar" Obama is, allegedly, an illegal immigrant.
In an interview with Boston radio host Howie Carr, Romney said "yes" when asked if "Uncle Omar" should be deported. Romney at first did not recognize the name, and was far from incendiary about it, saying simply that U.S. immigration laws should be enforced.
Take a listen to the exchange:
Onyango Obama is the 67-year-old half-brother of the commander-in-chief's late father, Barack Obama, Sr. His case is pending in Framingham, Mass., District Court.
He was initially held without bail by immigration officials on allegations he violated an official order to return Kenya issued 20 years ago but has since been released.
