Obama's uncle gets US deportation hearing

A federal immigration judge has scheduled a new deportation hearing granted last year to President Barack Obama's uncle in the state of Massachusetts.

Onyango Obama is the half-brother of the president's late father. He has lived in the U.S. since coming from Kenya as a teenager for school.

On Wednesday, his new hearing was set for Dec. 3.

The 68-year-old Obama was ordered deported in 1992 after he failed to renew an application to stay.

His status emerged after his 2011 drunken driving arrest in Framingham, Massachusetts. A judge continued that case for a year without a finding after Obama acknowledged prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.

His lawyer, Scott Bratton, said Wednesday, "Everybody wants to stay in America," and he hopes the December hearing will settle Obama's case.
