ASHLAND, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says he would deport President Barack Obama's uncle, who police say was arrested in August for drunk driving near Boston and is an illegal immigrant.

In an interview with Boston radio host Howie Carr on Wednesday, Romney said "yes" when asked if Onyango Obama should be deported. Romney at first did not recognize the name, but said the nation's immigration laws should be enforced.

Onyango Obama is the 67-year-old half-brother of the president's late father. His case is pending in Framingham, Mass., District Court. He was initially held without bail on a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on allegations he violated an order to return Kenya issued 20 years ago but has since been released.
