Obama uncle faces hearing in fight against deportation

A Boston immigration judge has set a Dec. 3 hearing to determine if President Obama’s uncle, ­Onyango ­Obama, should be deported to his native Kenya 50 years after he first arrived in the ­United States.

Immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro set the date at a short preliminary hearing Wednesday. After­ward, Obama’s lawyer, Scott Bratton, said he will ask the judge to grant Obama legal residency, in part because he has lived here for so many years.
