Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.
 

Barack Obama's impoverished, Boston-living aunt is an illegal alien (ICE halts all depotations!?)

[UPDATE: Obama throws her under the bus!]

From this:
Barack Obama's aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

Zeituni Onyango, 56, referred to as "Aunti Zeituni" in Obama's memoir, was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request, a person familiar with the matter told the AP late Friday. This person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one was authorized to discuss Onyango's case.

Information about the deportation case was disclosed and confirmed by two separate sources, one of them a federal law enforcment official. The information they made available is known to officials in the federal government, but the AP could not establish whether anyone at a political level in the Bush administration or in the McCain campaign had been involved in its release.
While reading this, I thought that two things would happen: either she'd be shuttled quickly out of the country (perhaps aboard Obama's 757), or there'd be an emergency private relief bill quickly passed to make here legal. It looks like the Bush administration has, for one reason or other, already taken steps in that direction:
Onyango's case — coming to light just days before the presidential election — led to an unusual nationwide directive within Immigrations and Customs Enforcement requiring any deportations prior to Tuesday's election to be approved at least at the level of ICE regional directors, the U.S. law enforcement official told the AP.

The unusual directive suggests that the Bush administration is sensitive to the political implications of Onyango's case coming to light so close to the election.
UPDATE: She also donated to his campaign. That was illegal, but the one who should take all the blame for the situation is Obama himself. She's a sympathetic figure; he is not.

Did he know she was here illegally? What contacts has he had with her? If he knew she was staying in the U.S. on and off he must have had some inkling of knowledge of her immigration status. Did he try to hide her away? The article linked from the last link has her telling a reporter this:
"We'll talk after the election... Come talk to me after the fifth."
And, from this she said:
"I can't talk about it, I just pray for him, that's all... After the 4th, I can talk to anyone."
Did someone from the campaign tell her to keep quiet?

Why was BHO letting her illegally redistribute her wealth to him, when he could have been helping her by getting her an immigration lawyer? If BHO had gotten her a lawyer, could they have appealed? Why then didn't BHO help her out? When is he going to introduce an emergency private relief bill to give her a green card?

Those are all good questions he should be asked, but I'm absolutely positive that no one is going to ask them, least of all so-called citizen journalists.

eh

It was not immediately clear how Onyango might have qualified for public housing with a standing deportation order. [1]

She's a criminal home-invader with no respect for the right of Americans to survive as a distinct people. She should be shot.

eh

Or perhaps gently placed on an airplane home (she is rather old); that works too. One or the other, though -- clearly this situation cannot be tolerated any longer. I know, let's vote on it.

Did Obama know about this? Did he aid and abet breaking the law? What might this portend for his enforcing immigration laws and welfare restrictions? Those who've already drank his Kool Aid will respond to this latest revelation the same way they've responded to revelations of Obama's longtime associations with the domestic terrorist, the PLO spokesman, and the convicted Mafia slumlord-developer : with a big yawn. These concerns are brushed off as 'character assassination'-- even though they're all true. America has been warned, but is apparently ready to substitute emotion and infatuation for sound judgment.

Compromise: shoot her first, then put her on a plane home.

Yoo-hoo, lonewacko. Clean up on aisle two and five please.

Edward, the clean-up we need is twofold: first we must rid ourselves those among us (like you) who will not let us defend ourselves, you are an aggressor; second, we must rid ourselves of those encouraged by our internal aggressors to race-replace us. The approporiate penalty for both sets of genocidists is capital. I'm not saying anything that doesn't have precedence in law or UN Convention.

Err... maybe that's the whole purpose behind his running for president. Getting aunt Bee to stay in your country. There is nothing that that man can't do.
