ICE continuing with deportation of Obama's uncle

New York residents dealing with the naturalization process will be happy to know that they aren't alone when it comes to dealing with citizenship issues.

He will now be required to attend regular meetings with ICE officials at an undisclosed location to expedite his removal from the country.
