House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Tx., bashed new Obama administration illegal immigration policies he says the president used to favor his uncle’s release from jail.

“It appears there is a double standard — one for President Obama’s family and one for everyone else,” Smith said in a statement in response to news reports that Obama’s uncle was “quietly released” from jail. “Last year, President Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt was granted asylum and now his illegal immigrant uncle has been released from ICE custody, even though he was arrested by authorities for drunk driving.”

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement reportedly released Onyango Obama, President Barack Obama’s uncle, from jail on Thursday. Onyango Obama was arrested for drunken driving and failing to use a turn signal, and according to the Department of Homeland Security, had a “final order of removal” from the United States dating back to 1992.

According to Smith, the Obama administration made several deportation and illegal immigrant policy changes last month, and Obama’s uncle is one of the first to benefit from it.
