So Much for Transparency:

Amazing. Remember the BHO's proud 'undocumented' auntie from Kenya?

(BTW, the pic to the left is of her wearing a dress and pearls given to her by her dear nephew.)

Decision day is this week.

The illegal alien aunt of President Obama could learn this week whether she can put down roots in Boston - or start packing her bags for a one-way trip back to Kenya.

And, save for U.S. Immigration Court Judge Leonard I. Shapiro, she’ll know before anyone else. Zeituni Polly Onyango has persuaded Shapiro to bar the public from her removal proceeding Thursday morning at the John F. Kennedy Federal Building, though it’s unclear why.


Reid said removal proceedings are sometimes held behind closed doors in cases of political asylum - such as Onyango is requesting - domestic abuse and security.

“The immigration judge will hear the merits of the case from both parties,” Reid said yesterday. “The judge may make a ruling from the bench, but there’s no guarantee.”

Onyango, she said, can call witnesses if she likes.

Neither Reid nor Rogers claimed any knowledge of Obama meddling on behalf of his late father’s African half-sister, and Rogers said Onyango isn’t trying “to capitalize” on family favortism.

“Everyone knows she’s related to him,” Rogers said. “It’s a no-win situation for him. He can’t get involved in this. The law has got to run its course.”

Onyango, a computer programmer, has been in the country illegally since 2004, when Shapiro ordered her to leave. Recent attempts to reach her at the South Boston housing development where she’s been living since a December 2008 stay of her deportation have been unsuccessful.

I'm sure that NO nepotism will be shown to this shameless criminal whatsoever. Riiiiiight.

Okay, so Obama can't get involved now...but, didn't he know he has an aunt who's been illegal here for almost 6 years? Where was he THEN?
And, closing the procedures? WHY?
"Political asylum?" Does she look like a trouble maker to YOU? Part of some rebel group which has been threatened by the Kenyan gov't?

So many secrets in Obamaville, aren't there........

She'll be moving in at the White House any day now.

I'm sure that NO nepotism will be shown to this shameless criminal whatsoever. Riiiiiight. Brooke!

Brooke said...

Z: Indeed, where was Obama?

Hermit: Nah, if Obama wouldn't do anything for his bro living in a shack, he won't mover her in... He'll just let We the People foot the bill.

Angel: Thanks!

Interesting, Brooke. I didn't even know she lived in New Orleans.


Mustang out

Chuck said...

No, she'll be treated like every other illegal - a job, welfare, health insurance, etc

Pasadena Closet Conservative said...

Oh, come on -- she's simply an immigrant who wants to do the work Americans won't do.

Either that or she's an illegal alien who needs to get the hell out.

Nepotism? C'mon, don't be absurd. It's like I'm detecting some sarcasm or, worse yet, a tinge of jaded pessimism on your part.

Here's a thought ... let her stay, and ship Zero back to Kenya in her place.

Krystal said...

Snarky, I like your idea!

Seriously, he'll let her be deported to prove he's tough on illegal immigration some one. Mark my words. Also, he could have sponsered her a long time ago. He didn't.

But he gave her a dress and strand of pearls. How lovely...

If she were more presentable, I'd bet he'd step in.

Comon people, don't be heartless. There's plenty of room for Auntie Bongo Bongo under Obama's bus.

Brooke said...

Mustang: I believe the story said Boston, but regardless, I'd like to know how she got here.

Chuck: You are likely correct.

PCC: I'll go with the latter.

BZ: A bit of both, perhaps?

SB: I like that idea!

Krystal: All of his Kenyan relatives look like derelicts with their grooming and body language.

I think you are right; Obama will throw his aunt under the bus to avoid the ensuing shit storm... However, he's proven that he really doesn't care what we think, so it could go either way.

Cube: It's a big, big bus with monster wheels, huh? ;)
