More Negativity From TRO

Not that this has anything to do with Barry (nothing ever does), but the aunt he is ignoring is an illegal alien.

WASHINGTON (AP) – 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.

Onyango’s refusal to leave the country would represent an administrative, non-criminal violation of U.S. immigration law, meaning such cases are handled outside the criminal court system. Estimates vary, but many experts believe there are more than 10 million such immigrants in the United States.

The AP could not reach Onyango immediately for comment. No one answered the telephone number listed in her name late Friday. It was unclear why her request for asylum was rejected in 2004.

Onyango is not a relative whom Obama has discussed in campaign appearances and, unlike Obama’s father and grandmother, is not someone who has been part of the public discussion about his personal life.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, Kelly Nantel, said the government does not comment on an individual’s citizenship status or immigration case.

No wonder he hasn’t paid any attention to her. Understandable. But what’s not understandable is that this is just now coming out. The media really dug into Barry’s background didn’t it? Bwaaaa.

Oh well, this won’t make a difference by Tuesday, but it does give us another insight into the man who may be president soon. And it is not a good one.

UPDATE:

The Obama campaign is returning his aunt’s donations. Cause, see, they are honest people and would never have accepted those illegal donations if they had only known she was illegal. Perhaps they should have vetted their own candidate? Yep, I would say so. Hmm, I wonder what they will do with all those other probable illegal donations they got from disabling their security system on their donations site?
