Barack Obama’s alien (and British subject) father was here on a student visa and managed to game the system long enough to stay here though he attracted the attention of Immigration officials who were worried about his multiple marriages and “playboy ways.” Obama, possibly to avoid deportation, stated that he intended to put his son up for adoption once he was born.
When he was questioned by the school’s foreign student adviser, the 24-year-old Obama insisted that he had divorced his wife in his native Kenya. Although his new wife, Ann Dunham, was five months pregnant with their child – who would be called Barack Obama II – Obama declared that they intended to put their child up for adoption. Boston.com
No one in the family and none of the friends of Obama Sr’s wife recall any such talk so the speculation is that Obama Sr. stated this to game the system and avoid deportation.
Imagine how much better the country would be had the elder Obama actually carried through with his words. Obama the younger would have made his way to a family and lived a life of relative obscurity and he would likely NOT have been elected.
But, daddy Obama was probably lying to keep his status.
The apple does not fall far from the tree.
Never surrender, never submit.
