An immigration judge in Boston has granted permanent residency to President Barack Obama's uncle, Onyango Obama.
The 69-year-old Kenyan-born uncle Onyango Obama was granted a so-called green card after living in the US illegally since 1970.
According to news.com.au, Federal Immigration Judge Leonard Shapiro found that Onyango qualified for residency under a law that allows residency applications by people who have lived in the country since before 1972.
Onyango entered the country in 1963 under a student visa, which lapsed in 1970, and was ordered deported in 1986 and 1989.
According to the report, he remained in the country illegally after losing an appeal in 1992.
His case was again taken up after a 2011 arrest for drunk driving in Framingham, Massachusetts, outside Boston.(ANI)
