Or even just a relative of the king ... (http://bostonherald.com/news/regional/view/20220403uncle_obama_on_the_roads_again_rmv_approve s_hardship_license)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Just a week after he copped a plea in a drunken-driving rap, President Obama’s illegal-alien uncle has landed a hardship driver’s license from the Registry of Motor Vehicles, making it perfectly legal for him to drive in Massachusetts — even though the feds say he doesn’t belong here.

Onyango Obama, 67, who lost his regular license for 45 days last week, scored his limited license yesterday from the Registry’s Wilmington branch, after convincing a hearing officer that life without wheels would have posed an undue hardship on his livelihood as a liquor-store manager. Obama bolstered his case with a letter from his employer, Conti Liquors, as well as proof that he’d enrolled in an alcohol-treatment program.

“He met all of the criteria,” RMV spokeswoman Sara Lavoie said.

Of the state’s decision to award Obama a license even though the federal government considers him an illegal alien</div></div>

States are enabled to do many things, regardless of federal laws. (Medical marijuana in CA, e.g.)

Your position seems to be that although the man 'met all the (state) criteria,' the state should nonetheless prevent this equal application of law, because you don't like his nephew. Is that about right?

Nope.

I'm suggesting that he is an illegal that committed a crime and should be deported.

You DO know, don't you, that simply being in this country without proper immigration papers is no crime at all? It's a civil infraction, carrying no prison penalty or monetary penalty. It's about the same as a parking ticket-- a civil, not criminal, violation.

What am I asking? Of course you don't.

As to the other potential crime, OUI, it's not clear how much of a crime that is in that jurisdiction, but evidently one that upon a plea agreement at least required no jail time, and no sanctions or even proceeding with the case except for a probationary period of 1 year. DWI down here in Florida is a misdemeanor for a first offense, also carrying no jail time.
