A new book out next week claims that President Obama's father considered putting him up for adoption when he was a child, according to The Hill.
The book, by Boston Globe reporter Sally Jacobs, cites documents in the "alien file" of the senior Barack H. Obama to make the adoption claim in her book, "The Other Barack: The Bold and Reckless Life of President Obama's Father." She obtained the documents from the Department of Homeland Security using a Freedom of Information request.
Obama's father was under "scrutiny" by immigration officials for possibly having multiple wives, which proved to be the case.
reports that the elder Obama stressed to the officials that he was divorced from his previous wife and that he and his current wife, Ann Dunham (the president's mother), planned to put their child up for adoption once he was born.
“Subject got his [United States Citizen] wife ‘Hapai’ [Hawaiian for pregnant] and although they were married they do not live together and Miss Dunham is making arrangements with the Salvation Army to give the baby away," according to the immigration file.
The file also recommended that immigration officials continue to keep an eye on the elder Obama and noted that he had been cautioned previously about his "playboy ways."
