If you are illegal.. it is always good to have a relative in the White House: Obama’s Aunt Onyango came to America in 2000 was denied requests to stay in the country in 2002 and ordered deported in 2004. During that time she lived in Public Housing for 5 years. Now that her Nephew is the pres, she gets Asylum. Guess the Law means nothing.
A federal judge on Monday granted asylum to President Barack Obama’s Kenyan aunt, Zeituni Onyango, who had been in the country illegally, according to reports.
Onyango, 58, had previously been denied to requests to stay in the country after she moved to the U.S. in 2000. She was ordered to be deported in 2004, but has been living in a Boston housing project for several years.
Her attorney said in February she was seeking asylum due to medical problems related to her Guillain-Barre syndrome, an autoimmune disorder she says she has, and because of threats of tribal violence in Kenya.
