Auntie Zeituni

18May10

President Obama’s aunt was recently granted political asylum in Boston and will be able to apply to become a citizen in 5 years.  However, there’s a whole host of problems here, and probably an indication of how the President would handle other illegal immigration cases.  As far as illegal immigration goes, this is about as cut and dried as you can get.  From the Boston Globe:

Onyango, who turns 58 this month, came to the United States in 2000

So she’s been here for 10 years now.  But was she ever here legally?  Maybe just a misunderstanding or delayed paperwork?

applied for political asylum in 2002, but was rejected in 2004 and ordered to leave the country.

Oh, so not so much.  She’s been here for 6 years with orders to leave the country.   But hey, maybe she was living a very productive life, providing for her family and trying to live the American Dream

Onyango, who lives in public housing in South Boston

She lives in public housing?  So she’s here illegally, but is living in housing paid by American taxpayers?  But the left tells us that this almost never happens.  It’s just all made up by the right-wing-nuts.

The president included Onyango in his 1995 memoir, “Dreams from My Father,’’ but has said that he was unaware of her immigration issues before the case came up.

So he visited her in Kenya, had enough of a relationship with her there to include her in his book and then totally lost all contact with her from 2000 to 2008?  C’mon.  Where are all those people who were so upset a few years ago about the White House lying to us?

As for the asylum ruling:

The US government’s lawyers have 30 days to appeal the decision, according to the immigration court.

Oh yeah, I’ll hold my breath on that one to happen.  This from the same government, the same president who thinks the Arizona law, which mirrors federal law, is a bad thing.
