Immigration document listing Barack Obama Sr.'s birthdate as June 18, 1934
Overshadowed by reaction to the release of Barack Obama's long-form birth
certificate was the unearthing of half-century-old files that cast doubt on
whether the age of the president's father indicated on the Hawaii document
The applications, memos and other documents from the Immigration and
Naturalization Service acquired in a Freedom of Information Act request by
Heather Smathers of the Arizona Independent
> - which indicate Barack Obama Sr. would have been 27 at the time of hisson's birth, not 25 - also suggest that the president's father did not leave
the islands from the time of his August 1959 arrival until he departed for
graduate studies at Harvard in June 1962.
Some have speculated that the president's parents ventured together to Kenya
while his mother was pregnant, but the files present a picture of a
financially strapped Barack Obama Sr. known for "playboy ways" who two
months after his reported marriage to Ann Dunham was still "running around
with several girls." His INS records, which show he had a class F-1 student
visa that had to be renewed annually, do not preclude him having made a
return trip to Kenya during his U.S. studies. But the only indication of
travel outside the U.S. was when officials denied a request for a fifth visa
extension and forced him to return to his home country in 1964, when Barack
Obama Jr. was 2 years old.
Among the released documents is a copy of a handwritten memo by an
immigration official that refers to Barack Obama Jr.'s birth in Honolulu on
Aug. 4, 1961.
The age of Barack Obama Sr. listed on the Certificate of Live Birth released
Wednesday by the president is 25, consistent with his commonly reported
birthday of June 18, 1936.
Several documents in the newly released immigration files, including
applications filled in by hand and signed by Barack Obama Sr., also list a
birthdate of June 18, 1936.
However, about a dozen documents - including an alien registration card with
fingerprints and an immigration arrival-departure card which presumably
accompanied his passport - show a birthdate of July 18, 1934.

Sr.'s birthdate as June 18, 1934
That date of birth would have made him 27 at the time Barack Obama Jr. was
(Story continues below)
In some instances, also, Barack Obama Sr.'s nationality is listed as
British, instead of Kenyan.
In an application to extend his visa that was approved July 28, 1960,
officials notated: "presents valid British passport 84764 until 4/29/64.
That passport number, 84764, was entered on a June 6, 1963, application to
extend his stay that stated he held a Kenyan passport. But this can likely
be explained by the fact that Kenya was a colony of the United Kingdom until
Curiously, on an Aug. 17, 1962, application to extend his visa, Obama Sr.
filled in a line asking him to list the names and addresses of children. The
only child he listed was Roy Obama, a son from his Kenyan wife, Kezia. At
that time, Barack Obama Jr. was 1 year old.
On that application he also listed his mailing address as c/o the Koinoinia
Foundation in Pikesville, Md. The organization, according to a website
<http://www.geotrees.com/v_schools.html> , was a "spiritual community" with
"strong Quaker influences" that sought to "take literacy, agriculture,
health, and similar practical skills into the undeveloped world." After
1970, it "shifted to New Age and wholistic activities."

An Immigration and Naturalization Service arrival-departure record filled in
by hand when he left the United States for Kenya in 1964 indicated a 1934
birthdate and British nationality.
The June 18, 1934, birthdate also was handwritten on an application to
extend his temporary stay that was submitted in Honolulu on Aug. 31, 1961,
just weeks after Barack Obama Jr. was born.
On the application, Obama's father also indicated he was married to Ann
Dunham, and he asked for permission to get employment, explaining: "because
unable to get more financial assistance."

as June 18, 1934
On a previous application for permission to work, dated March 3, 1961, he
indicated the reason was "economic necessity," stating, "This is because I
did not come with enough for the entire period of my stay and thought would
get some from scholarships and work."
On Aug. 31, 1961, he was granted an exception to the rule that F-1
non-immigrant students not be allowed employment and was permitted to accept
up to 25 hours a week of work, expiring Aug. 8, 1962. On the application, he
checked: "Because of economic necessity due to unforeseen change in
financial circumstances." In the required explanation, he wrote by hand,
"because unable to get more financial assistance." On the form, he listed
his total income as $1,190 and his total yearly expenses as $2,040.
Interestingly, one year before he filled out that application, he had
indicated on an application submitted in Hawaii to extend his visa another
year that he he had worked for $5 a day as a dishwasher at the "Inkblot
Yet near the end of his time in the U.S., on April 21, 1964, he indicated on
an INS form that he had not "been employed or engaged in business in the
'Child born in Honolulu'
An INS official, William Woods, handwrote a memo dated Aug. 31, 1961, that
referred to Barack Obama Jr. being born Aug. 4, 1961, in Hawaii.
"They have one child born Honolulu on 8/4/1961 - Barack Obama II, child
living with mother (she lives with her parents & subject resides at 1482
Alencastre St.)," Woods wrote.
Woods also noted Obama Sr.'s wife planned "to go to Washington State
University next semester."
As WND reported <http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=107889> , school records show
Dunham did go to the state of Washington to continue her studies, but she
attended the University of Washington in Seattle, not Washington State
University in Pullman, Wash. A girlfriend from Ann Dunham's high school days
in Mercer Island, Wash., near Seattle, has said she remembers Dunham
visiting her, along with newborn Barack Obama Jr., in "late August" 1961.
Dunham's departure from Hawaii shortly after Obama Jr.'s birth conflicts
with the president's account of his life story. He told a gathering of
schoolchildren in September 2009, for example, "My father left my family
when I was 2 years old, and I was raised by a single mother."
In the speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 that catapulted
him to political stardom, Obama told the nation, "My parents shared not only
an improbable love, they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of
'Get rid of him'
The Obama Sr. files show immigration officials rejected his request for yet
another visa extension in July 1964 and forced him to return to Kenya amid
reports by Harvard officials of scandalous behavior.
An INS investigator, M.F. McKeon, wrote in a June 8, 1964, memo that Harvard
officials "weren't very impressed with him and asked us to hold up action on
his application until they decided what action they could take in order to
get rid of him."
"They were apparently having difficulty with his financial arrangements and
couldn't seem to figure out how many wives he had," the investigator said.
A March 6, 1964, letter from an INS official to the American consul in
London expresses concern about a Kenyan woman who came to the U.S. in 1962
as a high school student and had been "associating with" Obama Sr.
INS officials communicated similar concerns when Obama Sr. was at the
University of Hawaii.
Lyle H. Dahlin, in a typed memo with a handwritten notation dated April 12,
1961, said that the University of Hawaii foreign student adviser reported
April 10, 1961, that Obama had been "married on February 2, 1961 to Stanley
Ann Dunham, a United States citizen from Seattle, Washington in Maui,
"The problem," Dahlin wrote, "is that when he arrived in the U.S. the
subject had a wife in Kenya."
The memo stated Obama was "born on June 18, 1934 in Kisumu, Nyanza, Kenya,
Dahlin said that according to the adviser, a Mrs. McCabe, Obama "has been
running around with several girls since he first arrived here and last
summer she cautioned him about his playboy ways."

"Subject replied that he would 'try' to stay away from the girls," the memo
Dahlin said Obama explained to McCabe that in Kenya all that was necessary
to obtain a legal divorce was to declare to the wife that she was divorced.
"Subject claims to have been divorced from his wife in Kenya in this
method," the memo said.
Dahlin noted that Obama could not be deported on a polygamy charge, because
he's a non-immigrant. But he recommended that Obama be closely questioned
before another extension was granted. He instructed that if his American
citizen wife, Dunham, tried to petition for him, "make sure an investigation
is conducted as to the bone-fide of the marriage."
A Lyle H. Dahlin is listed as a petitioner in a 1977 INS court case
as district director of the INS in Portland, Ore.
An INS "Report of Investigation" shows Obama Sr. was to depart the U.S. July
6, 1964, but a memo dated July 17, 1964, indicates he had overstayed his
visa and was still in the country.
The report stated: "A [redacted] has called twice and is quite upset because
her daughter (27) is planning on marrying this alien."
"Looks like he has over two wives now," the report said. "File shows that
his departure time expired 7/8/64 and he is apparently still here. Please
have investigation conducted as to his status."
A Report of Investigation states Barack Obama Sr. finally departed the U.S.
on July 22, 1964.
