Topic - Onyango Obama
President Obama spent a short period of time living with his uncle, Onyango "Omar" Obama, when he was attending Harvard Law School in the 1980s, the White House admitted Thursday for the first time.
The White House finally acknowledged Thursday that an illegal immigrant detained in Massachusetts recently is President Obama's "long-lost" uncle from Kenya.
In the president's 1995 memoir "Dreams From My Father," he writes that he learned in 1988 through family members in Kenya that his Uncle Omar had come to the United States 25 years earlier.
When it was reported in 2008 that Mrs. Onyango was possibly in the country illegally, Mr. Obama said he was unaware of her status.
