    President Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was denied asylum in the United States but stayed illegally for years, died Tuesday at age 61. Onyango, whose immigration status was reported by The Associated Press days before Obama’s election in 2008, had been treated in recent months for cancer and respiratory problems, Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong said. She died in a Boston rehabilitation center, said Wong, who represented her in her immigration case. Onyango, a half-sister of Obama’s late father, moved from Kenya to the U.S. in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She remained in...

    The “good moral character” of President Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle, arrested for drunken driving in 2011, has earned him legal U.S. residency and a chance to apply for American citizenship, a judge has decided. This is a classic example of the benefits of having friends—in this case a nephew—in high places. Onyango “Omar” Obama had lived illegally in the U.S. for decades when he got busted driving drunk in Framingham Massachusetts. At the time of his arrest Uncle Onyango had already been deported yet continued to live and work in the Boston area and he had a valid Massachusetts drivers’...

    ... The half brother of the president’s late father, Onyango Obama has lived in the United States since the 1960s. He was ordered to leave the country in 1992, but remained. Judge Shapiro cited a law that entitles immigrants who are “out of status” to become permanent residents if they arrived before 1972, maintained continuous residence and are of good moral character.

    (CNSNews.com) -- The U.S Board of Immigration Appeals has agreed to reopen the immigration case of Onyango Obama, delaying the deportation of the 68-year old Kenyan who violated an order to leave the United States in 1992. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to CNSNews.com on Tuesday that Obama, who is the president’s uncle, was granted a rehearing last week and his case is being re-opened. “The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) remanded the case back to Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) for reconsideration. It is inappropriate for ICE to offer any further comment on this case,” Brian...

    Following the publication of embarrassing internal government emails by Judicial Watch, the Homeland Security agency responsible for deporting criminal illegal immigrants is dodging questions about President Obama’s illegal alien uncle, who got busted for drunken driving last year in Massachusetts. The case received widespread media coverage because the commander-in-chief’s uncle, Onyango Obama, had previously been deported to his native Kenya yet lived and worked in the Boston area and threatened to call the White House after getting arrested. He also had a valid Massachusetts drivers’ license, which was temporarily suspended after his drunken-driving arrest but, incredibly, has been reinstated by...

    President Obama’s illegal-immigrant uncle has received a limited driver’s license from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles only a week after entering a plea to drunken driving. An RMV spokeswoman told the Boston Herald that Onyango Obama, 67, “met all of the criteria” for a hardship driver’s license that allows him to drive in Massachusetts from noon to midnight. The elder Mr. Obama lost his regular license for 45 days in court last week but convinced a hearing officer that being unable to drive would pose an undue hardship for him in his job as a liquor store manager.

    Perhaps Barack Obama’s drive to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants does not stem from his professed sympathy for immigrants nor his hope of naturalizing millions of new Democratic voters, but from his desire to shield his law-breaking relatives from deportation. On Wednesday, police in Framingham, Massachusetts, arrested President Obama’s uncle, 67-year-old Onyango Obama, for driving under the influence. During the stop, Onyango — whom the president calls “Uncle Omar” — showed the Obama family‘s highly cultivated sense of entitlement. According to the arresting officer, after coasting through a stop sign and nearly causing the officer to hit him, Onyango became...

    The Kenyan aunt of President Barack Obama has returned to her Boston apartment as she awaits a deportation hearing, neighbors say. Zeituni Onyango, believed to be in her late 50s, had fled Boston to stay with relatives in Cleveland after she ignited a controversy during last year's presidential campaign because she was found to be living the United States illegally. But neighbors told Tuesday's Boston Globe Onyango returned to her apartment in a public housing complex a few weeks ago. Onyango faces an April 1 deportation hearing that will be closed to the public. It will be her third attempt...

    President Barack Obama's illegal alien aunt has enlisted the help of an immigration lawyer to help her win asylum and stay in the United States. Margaret Wong and Associates is representing Zeituni Onyango, the 56-year-old Kenyan half-sister of Obama's deceased father, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Onyango and her lawyer are scheduled to attend an immigration hearing in Boston on April 1. "The judge will be looking at evidence that they may not have been aware of four years ago," Michael Rogers, spokesman for Wong, told the newspaper. "Wong is optimistic. We would have preferred to not conduct this case...

    A rule quietly imposed by the Bush administration right before Barack Obama was elected president remains in place. It requires immigration agents to get approval from higher-ups before arresting fugitives in cases where the arrest might generate what Homeland Security terms "negative media or congressional interest." The department's directive was issued October 31st, hours before The Associated Press disclosed the illegal status of Obama's aunt from Kenya. Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUH'-nee awn-YAHN'-goh), was instructed to leave the country four years ago but never left. She spent time in Boston and is now reportedly living in Cleveland. She's fighting deportation and was...

    Zeituni Onyango was ordered to leave the country in 2004 by an immigration judge who rejected her request for asylum from her native Kenya. Her illegal-immigrant status was revealed to the public days before Obama's election on November 4, and now she is fighting the deportation order. Contrary to popular opinion, Obama will not have executive power to unilaterally grant her, or anyone, legal immigration status when he becomes president. His only course of action would be to appeal to Congress to file a private bill providing citizenship. But for President Obama, it would be an avenue dotted with pitfalls....

    I hope Barack Obama remembered to thank George W. Bush on behalf of his illegal-alien aunt this week. The lame-duck Republican president did the Democratic president-elect a generous — and dangerous — favor right before Election Day: Putting politics above homeland security, the Bush administration ordered immigration authorities across the country to halt all deportation enforcement actions until the campaign season was over. According to my sources, the Bush administration issued a 72-hour cease-and-desist order to all fugitive apprehension teams to spare Obama embarrassment over his Kenyan half-aunt, Zeituni Onyango. The Associated Press reported on November 1 that Onyango was...

    President-elect Barack Obama's aunt is in hiding with relatives in Cleveland and mulling her options to fight a deportation order, according to her immigration lawyer. Margaret W. Wong, a lawyer in Cleveland, issued a statement saying Zeituni Onyango did not wish to comment further. The 56-year-old half-sister of Obama's late father had said she would speak to a reporter after the election, but instead declined to comment and fled her apartment in the Boston Housing Authority for Ohio. "Her wish is for this matter to remain private," Wong said in a statement. "She is in Cleveland with close family members...
