ASHLAND, N.H. (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says he would deport President Barack Obama's uncle, who police say was arrested in August for drunk driving near Boston and is an illegal immigrant.

In an interview with Boston radio host Howie Carr on Wednesday, Romney said "yes" when asked if Onyango Obama should be deported. Romney at first did not recognize the name, but said the nation's immigration laws should be enforced.

Onyango Obama is the 67-year-old half-brother of the president's late father. His case is pending in Framingham, Mass., District Court. He was initially held without bail on a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on allegations he violated an order to return Kenya issued 20 years ago but has since been released.

    I am all in favor of deporting the illegal Obamas, and the other illegal aliens too. Illegal is a crime, not a ticket to our Social Security and other social benefits for AMERICANS. No wonder we are bankrupt. And while we are at it, I think Congress and the Prez should all take major pay cuts, and NO retirement perks for temp jobs. They do not need retirement benefits for life for a 4 year job. I am also in favor of term limits on them too. I just might vote for Romney. I would also vote for Sherif Joe in Arizona for President. He is the only one doing it right out there in Arizona.

    While there at it, why don't they deport his aunt too. Both of these crooks have been living off the taxpayers for at least twenty years now. Hell, I'd settle for them throwing his aunt and uncle in prison, AND DEPORTING OBAMA!

      I'd Deport anyone with the name NOBAMA and make them PROVE they were born here ! Not some fake birth certificate 2 years after the fact.

    Well Mr. Romney since you're hot on illegal deportation, how about you come to Arizona and boot all the illegals out of my state! Currently no one except Sherriff Joe Arpaio is doing anything about illegal immigration here. The Federal gov't has been NO help to us and we are sick of it!
