Mr. Obama helped pay funeral expenses and sent a condolence note, Ms. Onyango’s family members said, but the...

    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."

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...

In a first-floor apartment of a brick public housing complex on a side street in South Boston lives a woman who city officials believe is Obama's aunt. Her name is Zeituni Onyango, as in the "Auntie Zeituni" in one of his books, a polite and...
