Obama's Aunt Zeituni Onyango Granted "Asylum" by U.S. Immigration Court

Via Weasel Zippers

President Obama's Aunt Zeituni Onyango, from Kenya, has been granted "asylum" by a U.S. Immigration Court, it was announced today. This is the same Aunt Zeituni who said last year that she "loved President Bush," calling him "the number one man in my life":

Boston Herald
A U.S. immigration court has granted asylum to President Barack Obama’s African aunt, allowing her to stay in the country, her attorneys announced Monday.

The decision was mailed Friday and comes three months after Kenya native Zeituni Onyango, the half-sister of Obama’s late father, testified at a closed hearing in Boston, where she arrived in a wheelchair and two doctors testified in support of her case.

Onyango plans to apply for a work visa and can apply for a green card after she gets it, her attorneys said.

The basis for her asylum request was never made public. People who seek asylum must show that they face persecution in their homeland on the basis of religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a social group.

"The asylum process is confidential and she wants to keep it that way, so we can’t get into details on why the judge granted asylum or the exact basis for her claim," said her attorney Scott Bratton. He added: "She doesn’t want people to feel sorry for her." . . . . READ MORE

Heard today that Auntie Zeituni was granted permission to STAY ILLEGALLY IN AMERICA.

Now, ain't that nice????

Article quote from wikipedia:
"Waiver of Deportation Granted

Zeituni Onyango was granted a waiver of deportation on May 17th 2010 by the United States and currently resides here legally.[48] Immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro granted Zeituni Onyango her lawyers Margaret Wong and Scott Bratton and her two doctors an extended hearing which lasted five hours. At the end Shapiro granted her legal residency and permission to work in the United States. She has Guillain Barre Syndrome which requires plasmapheresis which is extremely difficult to get in Kenya."

NOW, AIN'T THAT NICE?!
GUESS THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS WILL BE FOOTING THE BILL FOR HER HEALTH CARE AS WELL AS HER FREE APARTMENT.
