Zeituni Onyango, the aunt of President Obama who fought deportation in a controversial courtroom saga in 2008, has died, her immigration lawyer told the Herald.
Onyango died this morning at a rehabilitation hospital after a lengthy bout with cancer and respiratory ailments, attorney Margaret Wong said.
Shes been ill for quite some time. She didnt like people to know, because she is so strong, said Wong, who kept in touch with Onyango in recent years and called her auntie.
I dont think she accepted she was dying, said Wong. She just kept thinking she needs to go on.
Onyango, a Kenyan national whose illegal-immigrant status came to light during her nephews first presidential bid, was famously defiant in her fight for asylum and insisted she had a right to live in taxpayer-funded housing in South Boston.
Onyangos family is making funeral arrangements, which are being complicated because of her estrangement from her husbands side of the family, Wong said.
One less welfare leech! We must make sure she doesn’t vote in November!
Is he going to order that flags be lowered?
Finally got deported.
She’ll find a way—the Dems and their union buddies will find a way to make sure someone votes in her name...but yes let’s hope we can stop it!
She will live on in our hearts, and voting booths in multiple cities, in 57 states...for the next 100 years.
Won’t prevent her from voting.
He probably will unless he has a more important prior engagement. Like 18 holes or maybe a visit form his crack dealer.
Another example of who you know meets our dormant deportation system
Let’s give 90 days for the hero of Benghazi to prove he’s a citizen.
Yup when I vote here in MA I am not asked for ID. Surely her name will still somehow be on the rolls and someone will vote in her name
She meant she needs to go on sucking fedgov $. Now the checks will stop, thank goodness.
Will Zero pay for her funeral costs out of his own pocket? Will he finally have her sent back to Kenya? As long as this doesn’t cost America any more money it’s all good.
Besides, he never knew her anyway. She was just some woman that happened to be related to the guy that was purportedly Zero’s daddy.
Twice if the vote is in Chicago!
I wonder if she will vote for Hillary in 2016?
