Obama's Aunt Living Illegaly In United States

By Robert Paul Reyes

The 2008 presidential campaign has bestowed quite a few dubious characters with their precious fifteen minutes of fame: Joe the Unlicensed Plumber, Tito the Builder, The old lady who called Obama an Arab, and of course Sarah Palin.

ObamaNow you can throw in Barack Obama`s aunt who is living illegally in the United States into the mix. This poor woman has been besieged by reporters since it came to light that she`s in this country illegally.

"Sen. Barack Obama didn`t know his aunt might be living illegally in the United States, as media outlets are reporting, and his campaign will return contributions she made, an aide said

Sen. Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws [should] be followed," campaign spokesman Bill Burton said.

According to The Associated Press, a court refused four years ago to accept the asylum application of Zeituni Onyango, 56, the half-sister of Obama`s Kenyan father. However, she has continued to live in a public housing complex in South Boston, AP reported.

Onyango`s refusal to leave the country would be an administrative violation, not a criminal matter."

Very interesting how this woman`s immigration status was discovered just four days before the general election. There is something very fishy about the timing of this story, did someone from the Dept. of Homeland Security or the Bush administration leak this story to the press? Enquiring minds want to know, I`m just a humble blogger but investigative journalists should get to the bottom of this story.

Fox News and conservative bloggers are all over this story like white on rice, but if they imagine they can sink Obama`s presidential aspirations with "Auntiegate" they are crazy. Obama is headed toward a win of landslide proportions, and even if it was discovered that Obama`s Aunt was married to the Antichrist it wouldn`t make any difference. In a few weeks Obama will be living in the White House, and there will be plenty of room there for his relatives who are living in slums in Kenya or housing projects in the United States.
