arack Obama's Aunt in Boston has been living in the U.S. illegally for four years, the Associated Press reported today:
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.Read it
Information about the deportation case was disclosed and confirmed by two separate sources, one of them a federal law enforcement official.
In another story AP reported that Obama said Saturday he didn't know his aunt was living in the United States illegally.
This, of course, follows similar past statements from Obama, in which he claims ignorance of certain facts about past associations, alliances and family members.
Obama operatives said "that any and all appropriate laws [should] be followed," which raises the question of deportation.
AP reports Obama's aunt had been instructed to leave the country four years ago by an immigration judge who rejected her request for asylum from her native Kenya.Read it
