Obama's Aunt Zeituni Onyango: The System Took Advantage of Me
See BS ^ | 5 Mins Ago

Posted on 09/20/2010 3:50:21 PM PDT by jessduntno

President Obama's Aunt Zeituni Onyango lived in public housing as an illegal immigrant for a time because the "system" took advantage of her, she said in a recent interview.

"I didn't ask for it; they gave it to me," Onyango said in an interview with CBS affiliate WBZ-TV, scheduled to air tonight and Tuesday night.

"Ask your system," she continued, unapologetically, when asked about the situation. "I didn't create it or vote for it. Go and ask your system."

Onyango, the half-sister of Mr. Obama's late father, moved from Kenya to the United States in 2000. She first applied for asylum in 2002, citing violence in Kenya, according to the Associated Press. Onyango's request was rejected in 2004, but she stayed in the country, living in public housing in Boston. WBZ-TV reports that Onyango fell seriously ill but she did not have enough money to travel home after recovering.

When it was reported in 2008 that Onyango was possibly in the country illegally, Mr. Obama said he had no knowledge of her status. As a presidential candidate, Mr. Obama told CBS News' Katie Couric that he was not against the possible deportation of his aunt. "If she has violated laws, then those laws have to be obeyed," he said. "We are a nation of laws."

Onyango, however, told WBZ-TV, "If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen."

Onyango was granted asylum earlier this year.

Notice the family resemblance? They are both idiots.

He also had no knowledge of her financial need or her health. He was too busy caring for the poor.

They come here illegally so they can spit on our country. Is there, or has there ever been, a country on earth that tolerates this crap?

France and England? The Moose Limbs have them hiding under the bed. Of course, they are legally doing it ... so, no ... probably not.

She didn’t and we don’t. Poor little black victim.

My butt! We have no obligation to do anything but kick her sorry ass out!

By what criteria does she deserve asylum?

The only criteria I can see is that which qualifies her FOR an asylum.

With great power, freedom, and priviledge comes great RESPONSIBILITY.

What is it with that kenyan bunch, do they ALWAYS blame someone else? Are they not accountable for anything they do?

Somebody talk to them, will ya! Sheeeeeeeesh!

A LITTLE BESIDE THE POINT;

Have you seen the history of the Electric Guitar on History channel? Took it back through the Hawaiian Steel and the Slingerland all the way up ... pretty well done. Gave Charlie Christian his due, too.

the obligation to make me a citizen.”

I think the response citizens of the USA would be:
“POUND SAND, you beotch!!!!!!!”

That is said with apologies to all dogs that are faithful and attentive
mothers of puppies.

Nothing like being appreciative.

If it were up to me she would be on the first plane outta here. Bag and baggage.

Kenya doesn't know either: Kenya angry over ruling granting political asylum to Obama’s aunt

The article doesn't mention that the city apparently feared for her safety or something in regular public housing -- so transferred her to elderly housing (for which there's a wait of about 6 years for citizens).

Apart from the immigration questions, if you had an aunt in dire straights and you had made $5 million last year, would your aunt be in any kind of public housing????

Has anyone looked into the likelihood that two years of state sponsored college, or two years doing anything at all in the military, will essentially create a whole pot load of twenty one year old anchor babies?

If precedent is any guide, their parents, children, cousins, and spouses (sic) will be handed "rights" based on that dream.

Is everbody at the immigration service asleep?

By the way, does anybody know how many people actually work for immigration? There must be an army of bureaucrats working to process all of the millions of immigrants who enter the country. This is one bureacracy badly in need of reduction.

Obviously graduated from Harvard Law School. She'll be formidable to expel.

And I bet you didn’t refuse it either?

Has anyone asked this woman where BOH was actually born?

Has anyone asked this woman if BOH is a Muslim?

Has anyone asked this woman if BOH is a Marxist/Socialist?

If not, why not...”

Inquiring minds want to know....

“I didn't ask for it; they gave it to me.”

Sure......

THEY came knocking on my door just last week and asked if I wanted free housing.......

“The ruling said a return to Kenya might put Onyango in danger.”

That's right folks, she feared for life..............

If returned she would be smothered to death with hugs and
kisses for her family doing what Hitler, Stalin and al qaeda could not.

WRECKING AMERICA.

How does one get public housing without asking for it? There is an application process. The government just doesn’t troll the streets, pick folks up and put them in public housing.
