Zeituni Onyango is back in the news.
WKYC in Ohio got an exclusive interview with the deportation fugitive aunt of Barack Obama.
See it here (hat tip: Denise).
An excerpt from the station’s write-up:
Onyango is very protective of her nephew. She won’t say whether she’s spoken to him since her deportation troubles, but says her problems are her own.
“Right now with this controversy, I don’t want to disturb him because he’s got a big job to do. I’m not an issue. I am not Barack Obama’s daughter. I am not Barack Obama’s wife. I am not Barack Obama’s constituent. I’m Barack Obama’s auntie. So anything happening to Barack Obama, I should not be included,” Onyango says.
And on the advice of her attorneys she will say little about the case. “That depends on the judge. I can’t talk about it.”
Onyango is a computer programmer, who first came to the United States in 1976. Today she is ill, and uses a cane to help her get around. But her spirits are lifted when she talks of the President Obama’s father, her late brother.
“He told me on his death bed that one day Barack would lift up the Obama name to the world,” Onyango says.
Our talk turns to her time in Cleveland, as she awaits her hearing. She has nothing but praise for this city, and place that offers her privacy. “I love Cleveland. It is beautiful and clean,” Onyango says.
She believes her case will be settled and she will live for the rest of her life, in the United States. Her hearing is set for early next year.
She’s been the beneficiary of de facto amnesty for more than three decades. Why shouldn’t she feel entitled to it the rest of her life?
Oh, and I’m sure Lindsay Grahamnesty approves!
