Files Suggest Elder Obama Forced to Leave Harvard

Saturday, 30 Apr 2011 06:10 PM


BOSTON (AP) — Newly obtained federal immigration records indicate that President Barack Obama's father was forced to leave Harvard University in 1964 before finishing his doctorate in economics because the school was concerned about his personal life and finances.

According to immigration memos, Barack Obama Sr.'s request to extend his stay in the U.S. was denied and he returned to his native Kenya.

One memo said Harvard administrators were unsure about Obama's financial arrangements and "couldn't seem to figure out how many wives he had."

The Boston Globe first obtained the documents through a Freedom of Information request.

Harvard says in a statement that it could not find any information to support the account in the government documents.

The federal Homeland Security Department said Friday it does not comment on specific immigration cases.
