Change We Can Believe in … Barack Obama’s Aunt from Kenya living in US illegally & Donated to Obama Campaign

Posted in: Barack Obama,Bizarre,Corruption,Illegal Immigration,Politics,Presidential Election 2008,WTF

Change you can believe in … Obama’s aunt is not only in the country illegally and a deportation fugitive, she has illegally contributed to the Obama campaign.

Now Obama tells us he did not know about aunt’s illegal status. Between, Ayers, Wright, Rezco et all … does Obama know much about anything? Or is he lying through his teeth? What else does America need to discover of Obama before they actually question his motives, his policies and his past?

Just the other day we had learned that Barack Obama’s aunt was living in Boston, MA in less than stellar circumstances. One wondered why Obama did not share his own wealth an help with aunt. Instead, Obama would rather have you “spread your wealth” in order to do so.

Now we find out that Obama’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, from Kenya is illegally living in the United States. You have got to be joking. A Presidential candidate has a relative that is an illegal alien and no one prior to today ever bothered to find this out or vet Obama family members? Joe the Plumber had his records illegally searched in seconds; however, when it comes to anything to do with Obama it is never a concern. As Hot Air stated, And so, after six months of being studiously ignored, amnesty makes a last-minute cameo.

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 enforcement 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.

In typical and expected fashion, Barack Obama denies knowing anything regarding his aunts illegal status in the United States. Ssssure he did. Just like Obama did not know that domestic terrorist Bill Ayers was unrepentant or that Obama sat 20 years in a church pew and never heard the anti-American and hateful rantings of Revered Wright.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Saturday he didn’t know that one of his relatives was living in the United States illegally and believes the appropriate laws should be followed.

The Associated Press found that 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. The woman, Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUHN on-YANG-oh), is living in public housing in Boston and is the half-sister of Obama’s late father.

A statement given to the AP by Obama’s campaign said, “Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed.”

Michelle Malkin: Obama’s illegal alien aunt (and campaign donor!) is a deportation fugitive; Bush administration moves to protect her

Well now.

Turns out Aunti Zeituni Onyango, one of Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama’s many relatives made famous in his memoir, is an illegal alien. And not just a run-of-the-mill illegal alien on welfare.

She’s one of the hundreds of thousands of deportation fugitives — absconders – whom I’ve been reporting on for the past six years. After 9/11, the government vowed to crack down on absconders. They’ve failed abysmally.

WIZBANG: Obama’s Aunt an Illegal Alien; She Contributed to His Campaign; Lives in Public Housing

UPDATE I: Obama returns aunt’s donation after illegal immigrant report

So Barack Obama did not know that his campaign contributing aunt was in the US illegally? Obama does not seem to know much of anything. Out of curiosity this raises a larger question. How many of Obama’s campaign contributions are legal? Hell, he does not know his aunt’s legal situation, maybe Obama would like to review all of his campaign contributions and question exactly who is donating to his campaign and where they live.

Aides said Obama had not been in touch with his late father’s sister, Zeituni Onyango, 56, for at least four years, and questioned reporting about her residency status so close to Tuesday’s election against Republican John McCain.

Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt said the campaign was returning 265 dollars donated by the aunt to her nephew’s White House bid.

Foreigners cannot donate money to US presidential candidates. But aides refused to say whether returning the money was an acknowledgement that the aunt was an illegal alien.

“Given the information that has been brought to our attention, the contributions are being refunded,” LaBolt said in a statement, without elaborating.

Obama’s chief strategist David Axelrod would not comment on the aunt’s immigration status but said Obama last met her for sure at his Senate inauguration ceremony in 2004.
