Obama's uncle wins immigration battle, gets OK to stay in U.S.

(CNN) – Onyango Okech Obama - an uncle of President Barack Obama who has been in the United States illegally for decades - has gotten a federal court's OK to stay in his adopted country, according to an attorney representing the uncle.

Federal immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro in Massachusetts agreed without argument Tuesday to allow the uncle, who has been living and working in U.S. for 50 years, to stay and obtain a green card, said attorney Margaret Wong.

    This is great cannon fodder for the right wing. It will give them a chance to show their true feelings.

    Wow, almost 50 years of looking over your shoulder expecting INS to show up at your place of business or at home.
    I am glad that he obtained a lawyer to plead his case.
    I am also enocuraged that the judge put him on the path to citizenship by allowing him to apply for his green card.
    There will be those, of course, on this thread who will fail to see that the President's uncle landed illegally on our shores at around the same time the President was born, but that won't discourage them from drawing random parallels and screeching about other unrelated issues.
    Proceed.....
