Obama’s Aunt Living in US Illegally

1 Nov

The Assosciated Press reports: “that Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago.”

Are you kidding me! A presidential candidate has a relative illegally living in the US and we learn about 3 days before the election? Yep, the media failed to conduct any real research into Obama’s background. If they had done their jobs properly, we would know things like this. It’s so frustrating. Can you imagine what we might have learned about Obama during the primaries if the media were doing their jobs? Perhaps it would have been a Hillary vs. McCain election decision this Tues. instead of Obama. Can you imagine what information will come out about Obama after the election? I shudder to think about the scary possibilities.

Here’s an excerpt from an excellent post at NoQuarter which details this story well:

On 30 OCT 2008 we learned that Obama’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, the child of Obama’s paternal grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, resides in a dilapidated public housing block in South Boston. Although residents of the same metropolitan area, she and Obama led parallel lives: he edited the Harvard Law Review and gamboled about Harvard Square, while she lived in squalor with other immigrants in an economically depressed area of Boston.

He did describe her affectionately in his memoir entitled Dreams of My Father, however. Recounting his first meeting with Onyango, Obama recalls how she said, “You take good care of Barry now.” “Make sure he doesn’t get lost again,” she admonished Obama’s cousin. But as Obama climbed the political and social ladders of the Ivy League and of inner city Chicago, he became more and more “lost” to the relatives about whom he waxes poetic in a text he wrote for personal and political profit.

“I have been coming to America ever since 1975,” Obama’s aunt boasts when interviewed by a London Times reporter. But there is one problem: Obama’s aunt is not a United States citizen. In fact, she received a deportation order in 2004, when her application for political asylum was rejected. I quote the New York Times:

Zeituni Onyango, 56, referred to as ”Aunti Zeituni” in Obama’s memoir, was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request, a person familiar with the matter told the AP late Friday. This person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one was authorized to discuss Onyango’s case.

Zeituni Onyango’s status as illegal immigrant begs a few questions.

  • How did she contribute a total of $260 to her nephew’s campaign in a series of small donations from her South Boston address if she is not a United States citizen?
  • Are many illegal immigrants and foreigners submitting small donations to the Obama campaign in order to avoid scrutiny by the FEC?
  • How does she qualify for public housing if she is not a United States citizen?
  • How is Obama to be trusted to reform the immigration system if his relatives are breaking immigration laws and living illegally in this country?
  • And why did the Senator not file a form I-130, a Petition for Alien Relative, on behalf of his aunt after her request for political asylum was rejected? As a United States Senator, he certainly could expedite the adjudication of such a petition.

    This is ridiculous! I still wonder how her famous nephew pulled the strings to let her stay here and get public housing despite deportation orders.

    She most likely is also on wel-fare! The American people better wake up and vote for McCain! Obama will be letting everyone illegal or not into America! Terrorist to!

    Obama may be an illegal alien himself. He still hasn’t produced a brth certificate.

    Obama’s infomercial this week portrayed families in need and how he will help them if elected President. If Obama is serious about helping people in need, why hasn’t he helped members of his own family?

    It’s just a matter of time before Obama releases some version of ‘not the person I knew’ excuse and throws Aunti Zeituni under the bus.

    Obama knows his aunts staus and always has. How does an illegal alien get to list a job working at a government agency such as the Boston Housing Authority? On top of that she gets free housing and monthly checks from the sweat of hard working American Tax paying Citizens.

    Is this what obama will bring to the american people? Hard working tax paying legal citizens picking up the tab for his beloved illegal alien friends and family who come here to live off off hard working tax payer subsidized government bennefits such as welfare, public housing, public education/with free hot lunch and free programs and health care? It makes me think I should denounce my 12th generation birthright citizenship to become an illegal alien so I can get a free lunch and life!

    We’ll see how much everyone loves obama if he does what he says by increasing the US population by 10% overnight thru legalizing the 12 to 32 million people, he is promising to legalize, who are here illegally. We’ll see how many people can find jobs when 25 million people are looking for work instead of the 7 million the state unemployment agencies are reporting as looking for work now. We’ll also see how much the blacks love obama when they get pushed furher down the rung of the american population ladder where they’ll hold a long distant #3 spot 30 million people below the 60 million hispanics who’ll then be legal. And people think obama is going to show them love.
