Steve King Says Obama's 'Drunken Uncle Omar' Should Be Called Before Congress (VIDEO)


He also took a shot at Obama's aunt, who was granted asylum in the country by a Republican-appointed immigration judge because her immigration status was leaked just ahead of the 2008 presidential election.

"I watched as President Obama's aunt, Zeituni Onyango, also evaded [Immigration and Customs Enforcement]," King said. "The sympathy, the bleeding heart, of [Department of Homeland Security Director] Janet Napolitano decided to use an administrative authority to grant President Obama's aunt asylum."

King's comments follow remarks by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), who said last week that "Obama's backdoor amnesty allows drunk-driving illegal immigrants like his uncle to remain in the U.S."

White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Sept. 1 that Obama expected his uncle's situation to "be handled like any other immigration case."
