Last year, brief mention was made about Obama's aunt, Zeituni Polly Onyango, living in Boston in public housing. Polly is the half-sister of Obama's father and has been living in the U.S. illegally and faces deportation.
The following is from The Boston Herald via foxnews.com. My comments will be in color.
Barack Obama’s aunt at home in Southie digs
With her deportation hearing still six months away, the controversial Kenyan aunt of President Obama has quietly resurfaced in public housing in South Boston, the Herald has learned.
“Beggars can’t be choosers,” Obama’s “Auntie Zeituni” Onyango, 57, told the Herald yesterday with a mischievous smile, wearing a string of pearls and a sleeveless forest-green sheath she said her nephew bought her years before he became leader of the free world. (You shouldn't be a "beggar" in this country. You are a criminal who chose to thumb your nose at our immigration laws. With regards to "leader of the free world": it won't be free by the time your newphew's done with it.)
“I’d like to live in a castle and have a limousine,” she said, “but I don’t. My wealth is my health.” (Your nephew and his evil minions in Congress will make sure that you will just as poor as the rest of us. Be thankful you may be in Kenya if this crap goes through. Your healthcare will be better.)
Zeituni Polly Onyango, the half-sister of Obama’s late father Barack Obama Sr., moved into a discreet apartment complex this past month while she waits to fight a Feb. 4, 2010, removal proceeding brought against her by the Department of Homeland Security in U.S. Immigration Court in Boston. (Who's paying her rent?)
Onyango, a computer programmer, was ordered to leave the country in 2004 after her request for political asylum from the violence in Africa was turned down. Instead, she stayed illegally and was revealed to be living in government-subsidized housing on Flaherty Way in Southie last October by The Times of London during the final stretch of Obama’s run for the White House. (If she is smart enough to be a programmer, you would think she would be smart enough to go about the citizenship process legally. And with the money that can come from being a programmer, how did she qualify for Section 8 housing? We paid her rent for four years!!!)
Though reluctant to discuss her case yesterday, Onyango bristled when asked if she’ll request her nephew stand up for her as a character witness.
“Why should he?” she said. “My problem is my problem. I carry my own cross. I’m an adult.” (An adult who should know the laws of this country regarding citizenship.)
Mike Rogers, spokesman for the Cleveland, Ohio, law firm representing Onyango, said her attorneys are “not discussing legal strategy,” but, “they’re very optimistic about the outcome.” (They may not be discussing legal strategy, but I wonder if they're discussing the case with the resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue being that they're so optimistic about the outcome.)
Rogers said Onyango is “very proud” of Obama. “For a woman who has a lot of things against her, she seemed to be of strong spirit,” he said. (I'd say that having Dear Leader as a relative is one strike against her. That's the proverbial albatross around her neck.)
Attorneys Margaret Wong and Scott Bratton have asked that Onyango’s immigration hearing be closed to the public, according to Elaine Komis, a spokeswoman for the Executive Office for Immigration Review, an agency of the U.S. Department of Justice. (Why should her hearing be private when many others aren't? Are they afraid of information that may be aired during the hearing? Hmmmmm?)
Onyango said she’s been enjoying her privacy since escaping the heat of last year’s worldwide spotlight on her and enjoys joining in on conversations about her nephew with people who don’t recognize her. (Boy, how I'd LOVE to discuss her nephew with her!)
“Boston is my second home,” she said. “(South Boston) is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever lived in. People are very kind, and I’m enjoying the beaches.” (So is your nephew and his family. Tell me, Aunt Polly, did your nephew stop to see you during his vacation? He WAS in Martha's Vineyard recently staying in luxury digs. Did he invite you along? No? Well, isn't that just a wonderful way to treat family!)
Obama has said repeatedly that he didn't know his aunt was living in the U.S. illegally and believes that laws covering the situation should be followed. (REALLY? Why does Barry want Aunt Polly out of the country? Do you think she was also present at his birth? And if he believes the law should be followed covering her immigration status, why is he so gung ho on letting other illegals reap benefits from American taxpayers?)
While I believe, that this woman should be deported under the laws of this country, I'm left with loads of skepticism about this whole situation. Maybe I'm missing something, but my gut is telling me that there's more to this. Something is just not adding up. I could be very wrong, but.....
My suggestion to Aunt Polly is to stay out of Fort Marcy Park. She may get the sudden urge to commit suicide. Vince Foster did.
