Yes She Can

Ready for a bit out outrage?

Remember the controversy surrounding Obama's illegal alien aunt during the 2004 election? It seems that she can now remain in the U.S., with us paying for all of her medical bills and welfare and with NO consequences for the time she was here illegally despite being ordered to leave the country.

From this source:

President Barack Obama's Kenyan aunt can stay in the United States, a U.S. immigration judge has ruled, ending a more than six-year legal battle over her status.
Judge Leonard Shapiro made the decision Friday, court officials told CNN. Two government sources confirmed Monday that the ruling will give legal status to Zeituni Onyango, allowing her to remain in the country.
Onyango's attorneys plan to hold a press conference at 2 p.m. in Ohio.
Onyango, who is the half-sister of the president's late father, applied for political asylum in 2002 due to violence in her native Kenya. She was a legal resident of the United States at the time and had received a Social Security card a year earlier.
Onyango's asylum request was turned down in 2004, and she has been living in the United States illegally since then. She appealed the rejection of her request twice, but was denied each time and ordered to leave the country.
Judge Shapiro gave Onyango permission to remain in the United States in April 2009 while he considered her case.
In February, Onyango arrived at an immigration court in a wheelchair and testified before the judge for more than two hours, her representative, Amy Cohn, told CNN at the time. Two doctors, including her personal physician, also testified on her behalf. Onyango's medical condition was part of her legal defense against expulsion.
White House officials said during the appeals that Obama was staying out of the matter.

Of course he does. God forbid he ENFORCE the law and expel someone he knows is here illegally.

And I guess that the 'natural course' of this case is that it will of course turn out the way that King Obama wants it to... It just had to go before the right judge.

Like I said on some of the other blogs, this is a case of rank nepotism at best. Hooray for executive privilege and I wonder if he's yet to invite her to the White House?

With all the money Obama makes, he should pick up the bill for his aunt's expenses. Of course, he won't because the notion that at some point you make enough money is only applicable to OTHER people and not THE WON.

Of course he does. God forbid he ENFORCE the law and expel someone he knows is here illegally.

Obama? Enforce laws? Why, he would only do that against American citizens ... you know, like throw people in jail for not purchasing health insurance.

It is hard to read this story about a leech sucking on the carcass that once was the USA.

Parasite will work as good as any word I can come up with at this level of outrage.

It really burns me that Obama KNOWS she's hear, doesn't insist the law is enforced and she's deported, and EVEN WORSE he allows her to live off the public dime while he rakes in MILLIONS.

Why should BHO expect the law to be enforced? After all, he's "The One" and is absolutely convinced that his whole family deserves special privileges.

Disgusting in every way.

Mustang said...

Just one of 20 million other illegal aliens who most liberals want to extend "amnesty" to.

We did this twice before; it doesn't seem to have worked. I agree with LomaAlta ...

Semper Fi

AOW: It's good to be the King, I suppose.

LA, Mustang: AGREED!
