Obama aunt from Kenya living in US illegally
google.com ^ | 103108 | EILEEN SULLIVAN and ELLIOT SPAGAT

Posted on 10/31/2008 8:59:09 PM PDT by Fred

WASHINGTON (AP) — 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, The Associated Press has learned.

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.

Information about the deportation case was disclosed and confirmed by two separate sources, one of them a federal law enforcment official. The information they made available is known to officials in the federal government, but the AP could not establish whether anyone at a political level in the Bush administration or in the McCain campaign had been involved in its release.

Onyango's refusal to leave the country would represent an administrative, non-criminal violation of U.S. immigration law, meaning such cases are handled outside the criminal court system. Estimates vary, but many experts believe there are more than 10 million such immigrants in the United States.

The AP could not reach Onyango immediately for comment. No one answered the telephone number listed in her name late Friday. It was unclear why her request for asylum was rejected in 2004.

So as homeless Americans sleep on the street tonight, Obamas illegal non-citizen aunt sleeps in warmth...thanks to our tax dollars giving her public housing.

That’s why the words “model citizen” were used to describe her previously.

They need to get a deposition from her regarding obama’s birth origin.

I wish Rush or Hannity would put her up in a hotel room for 6 months. The PR would be worth 50x the cost.

She’s probably laying low until Tuesday when she figures Obama will take care of her.

I don’t know if she voted but I know she stated that she donated 300 bucks to Barack. That’s illegal for all but the Leader.

Pity the poor anonymous source on this illegal alien's case. With all in intimidation style investigation on Joe the Plumber, what do you think the Dems will do to the person who leaked this?

Can you imagine the uproar if McCain or Palin had a relative, legal or otherwise, living on government assistance!! To borrow a phrase from John “Silky Pony” Edwards, “there are two Americas!”

Exactly. This story was broken by a reporter from The Times (UK). She told him she couldn't say anything until after election day.

Obama could have at least helped her to immigrate lawfully. I suppose he was to busy helping his constituents in Chicago. NOT.

as Rush calls it, "Slum, Sweet Slum"

I am sure there are many of us whose relatives live simply and never even THINK of looking for assistance from the government...and yet these illegals take and take and take.

Now we find she's CONNECTED and illegal....what a nephew!

"Barry, can you help me with this immigration thing"??

"No".
