Obama's Kenyan-born uncle allowed to remain in US

BOSTON -- President Barack Obama's Kenyan-born uncle has been granted permission to stay in the U.S.
An immigration judge ruled Tuesday that 69-year-old Onyango Obama is a person of "good moral character."
Obama is the half brother of the president's late father. He has lived in the United States since the 1960s. He was ordered to leave the country in 1992, but remained.
Onyango Obama and a longtime friend testified at a hearing that he has lived in the U.S. for 50 years, been a hard worker, paid income tax and been arrested only once.
His immigration status didn't become public until his 2011 drunken driving arrest. At the time, he allegedly told police, "I think I will call the White House."
