MA Police Arrested Obama For Drunk Driving Wednesday Night—Hits Police Car, Fails Breathalyzer!

FRAMINGHAM — A Framingham man illegally in the country from Kenya was drunk when he nearly ran his sport utility vehicle into a police car Wednesday night on Waverly Street, police said.

After the near crash, Onyango Obama, 67, told Officer Val Krishtal that Krishtal should have yielded to his Mitsubishi SUV, according to a report filed yesterday in Framingham District Court. Obama failed several field sobriety tests and was arrested. At the police station, Obama failed a Breathalyzer test, registering .14. The state legal limit is .08.

OK, so it’s not THAT Obama…  But there is an Obama-related aspect to this story:

Obama has a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement warrant for his arrest. ICE has previously ordered him to be deported back to Kenya.  Obama pleaded not guilty at his arraignment yesterday. Judge Douglas Stoddart did not set any bail on the driving charges but ordered him held on the ICE warrant.

This story has a disturbing resonance after a drunk, repeat-offender illegal immigrant crushed and killed a 23-year-old graduate of Framingham State in the nearby town of Milford.  The details of that horrible story are linked here, but the key facts are that the killer had been previously stopped, detained or arrested by local cops many times—including for assaulting a police officer and breaking and entering—but he was never referred to ICE.

Why?  Because it’s the policy of pro-illegal-immigration governor Deval Patrick to refuse to cooperate with the Secure Communities policy.  Obvious Mr. Obama above is another “winner” in Patrick’s pro-criminal game. The NOT-president Obama guy, I mean.

Unfortunately, even if we did have a governor who cared more about public safety than politics, it apparently wouldn’t make any difference. Fox 25 here in Boston reports that they contacted ICE about the killer in Milford and were told that, even if he had been referred to them, the crimes of resisting arrest, assault and B&E “aren’t necessarily serious enough to warrant deportation under current policy.”

So it’s not just Gov. Patrick who’s supports ignoring the law on behalf of dangerous repeat criminals, it’s also Obama.  I mean, the OTHER Obama, not the one from Kenya.

Oh, wait—I mean the other, uh….

Never mind.

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
