Agents O (Barack "Barack Panther" Obama) and K (Joe Biden) work for the Pols in Black, an unofficial government agency that provides immigration services and regulation of all things alien on Earth. Well, that's how it used to be, but administration changes have cut off much of their resources at a time they need them most. Now an alien visitor to Earth needs to "phone home" to get back, and until he can, O and K need to keep him from being "put on ICE"!
