    Just in time to pack your beach bag with some good summer reading, President Obama’s aunt has penned a book sure to connect with a wide swath of Americans. Zeituni Onyango’s new memoir “Tears of Abuse” was released quietly in late March. The Boston Herald’s Howie Carr brought national attention to it Friday in a tongue-in-cheek column based on a fresh press release for the book. According to Carr, Onyango’s book deals with her supposed victimization in America while living off the taxpayer’s dime. “Auntie” Zeituni Onyango indentifies herself as “an advocate for peace and a writer” on her personal...

    Americans are a good people, fair-minded and compassionate. Despite Michelle Obama's condemnation of the United States as "just downright mean" while stumping for her husband in South Carolina in 2008, Americans lead the world in private charitable giving. A month after the deadly Haiti earthquake in January 2010, American charities and churches had given $409 million in aid. More than half that amount — $210 million — had been raised within five days. This spirit of charity has been demonstrated time and again, as after the 2003 earthquake in Bam, Iran, and the devastating Indian Ocean tsunamis the day after...
  • Obama's Illegal Alien Aunt Sucking Taxpayers Dry

    Zeituni Onyango's arrogance and contempt for America is breathtaking. She came illegally, lived in public housing for years, collected welfare, even got $51k in disability. And still she is angry at America. This case is beyond depressing. And it underlines what many eople see today: that in the old days, immigrants came to America to lend a hand to our growing nation. But far too many today merely come for a handout. And their arrogance and sense of entitlement is a symptom of the broken borders and lawlessness we have permitted, which lets anybody in, asks nothing of them, and...

    Forget the Statue of Liberty - we now need a statue of Auntie Zeituni, the untired, unhuddled, in fact extremely well-rested illegal alien yearning not to be free, but to live free. So here she is, the president’s half-aunt, 58 years old, “retired,” living in public housing where Americans must wait years for an opening, getting $700 a month from a system into which she never contributed. “I have been treated like Public Enemy Number One,” she told Channel 4’s Jonathan Elias the other night. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If I ever get in a...
  • Zeituni Onyango, President Obama's Kenyan aunt, says Obama didn't pull strings to keep her in US

    President Barack Obama's aun tZeituni Onyango, right, is the half-sister of Obama's late father President Obama's Kenyan aunt says her nephew didn't pull any strings to help her stay in the U.S. "Don't drag my child into this," Zeituni Onyango said in her first interview since she was granted asylum in May, apparently referring to Obama. Onyango, who lives in public housing and collects a $700 monthly disability check, also insisted "the system" took advantage of her. "I didn't take advantage of the system," she said. In the first of a two-part interview with WBZ-TV in Boston, Onyango said she...

    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...

    Kenya's government expressed anger today about a ruling by an immigration court in Boston that granted asylum to President Barack Obama's aunt after she declared she could be targeted by members of Kenya's government if deported. Government spokesman Alfred Mutua told The Associated Press that the case of Zeituni Onyango was an embarrassment and said the allegations made against Kenya were untrue and unrealistic. "It has become a habit for Kenyans seeking asylum in other countries to lie. Her case is an embarrassment to this country and President Obama," Mutua said. "We are not looking for her. The government does...

    BOSTON (AP) -- A judge in Boston who granted asylum to President Barack Obama's African aunt ruled she deserved to stay in the United States because a federal government official leaked her status to a news organization. U.S. Immigration Judge Leonard Shapiro granted asylum to Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUH'-nee awn-YAHN'-goh) in May. His written decision was released this week through the Freedom of Information Act and first was reported by The Boston Globe. The judge found a federal government official disclosed Onyango's immigration status and her relationship to Obama to The Associated Press three days before the 2008 presidential election. He...

    Congressman Steve King, an Iowa Republican, today requested that President Obama's aunt, Zeituni Onyango, testify before the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security and International Law in order to address "the public perception that favoritism played a role in the grant of asylum to Ms. Onyango." In a letter to the chair of the subcommittee, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, King writes that "[i]n order to better determine whether favoritism played a role - especially because Ms. Onyango had been earlier turned down for asylum and ordered deported in 2004 before her nephew became president - the Subcommittee needs to...

    SBI is a critical element of the larger DHS-CBP effort to increase border security, which includes construction of the border fence.

    BOSTON (AP) - An immigration hearing for President Barack Obama's African aunt has ended without an immediate decision in her bid for asylum. Kenya native Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUH'-nee awn-YAHN'-goh) testified for about two-and-a-half hours Thursday at the closed proceedings in U.S. Immigration Court. Two doctors also testified in support of the case her lawyer said includes medical reasons to stay in the U.S. Attorneys for Onyango and the government have 30 days to file closing briefs. The hearing could continue on May 25 if the judge does not issue a ruling before then.

    Baltimore Republican Examiner ^ | March 26, 6:02 AM | Sean O'Donnel
    Boston, Ma. – Zeituni Onyango, aunt of President Obama and illegal immigrant from Kenya, is scheduled for a deportation hearing on April 1. Since being ordered deported in 2004, Onyango has resided in the U.S. illegally; living five years in Boston's taxpayer-funded public housing. This will be the third effort by the 56 year-old to avoid deportation. Onyango came to the U.S. in 2002, seeking political asylum from the violence in Kenya. President Obama stated that he hasn’t been involved in the matter and that it should be resolved the same way as any other case. Some critics of the...

    President Barack Obama's aunt, a Kenyan immigrant who ignited controversy last year for living in the United States illegally, has returned to her quiet apartment in a Boston public housing project to prepare for an April 1 deportation hearing that will be closed to the public. Zeituni Onyango, a tall, frail-looking woman in her late 50s who walks with a cane, had fled Boston to stay with relatives in Cleveland last fall after media attention erupted over her case. She was spotted at Obama's inaugural festivities in January and, according to neighbors, returned to Boston a few weeks ago for...

    An anti-illegal-immigration political group is calling on Barack Obama today to deport his aunt, Zeituni Onyango, who apparently remains an illegal immigrant fugitive from justice in Cleveland. Americans for Legal Immigration posted its "public demand" on its Web site, basically telling Obama he's a hypocrite if he won't have his aunt arrested and removed to her native Kenya: "Actions speak louder than words, Mr. President," said William Gheen. "If you do not execute the deportation order for your aunt, then your lip service about the Rule of Law is no CHANGE from George Bush." The 56-year-old Onyanga was found living...
