Obama himself has shown no indication – at least not that this writer is aware of – of being torn up by the death of his illegal alien aunt, Zeituni. However, he did provide aid and comfort to this illegal (along with millions of other illegals) in direct violation of his oath of office. What’s worse, is that Obama isn’t the only president who has specifically protected Zeituni from being sent back where she belonged. From Michelle Malkin:
Auntie Zeituni’s ridiculous asylum application and what happened afterward are reminders that our asylum and deportation systems are appalling jokes. Auntie Zeituni’s bogus request was rejected by the immigration court system. A judge ordered her to return to Kenya in 2003. She appealed. She lost. A judge again ordered her to leave in 2004.
But Auntie Zeituni never went home. Like an estimated 700,000 other deportation absconders, she evaded the judicial order for nearly a half-dozen years and continued to feed at the government trough. When the Bush administration had the chance to put the pedal to the enforcement metal in 2008, they caved. Pandering to pro-amnesty forces, Bush officials issued a 72-hour cease-and-desist order to all fugitive apprehension teams to spare Obama embarrassment over his auntie right before Election Day.
As an Immigration and Customs Enforcement source told me at the time: “The ICE fugitive operations group throughout the U.S. was told to stand down until after the election from arresting or transporting anyone out of the U.S. This was done to avoid any mistakes of deporting or arresting anyone who could have a connection to the election, i.e., anyone from Kenya who could be a relative. The decision was election-driven.” Such stand-down non-enforcement orders are standard operating procedure in Washington.
And if it wasn’t the direct involvement of the White House, our corrupt judicial system was doing all it could to keep Zeituni here. Not that she appreciated it, mind you. More from Michelle Malkin:
Auntie Zeituni’s illegal activity and ingratitude were rewarded time and time again. She got multiple bites at the immigration court apple, where it ain’t over till the alien wins. Despite twice being ordered to go home, the feds allowed her bogus case to be reopened. After breaking visa laws, campaign finance laws (she donated illegally to Obama three times), deportation rules and judicial orders, she was allowed to have yet another hearing. Her manufactured claim of a “credible fear of persecution” in Kenya made a mockery of every legitimate case for asylum or refugee status.
“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen,” Auntie Zeituni demanded. She griped that America had “used” her and then cashed in on a book about her travails called “Tears of Abuse.” And then, after a decade of doing absolutely nothing to enhance the well-being of our country, she received a coveted green card in 2010.
Plenty of blame to go around here. Every single politician and bureaucrat in this country who are enforcing amnesty upon us – up to and including Obama and Bush 43 – would be tried for treason in a more sane society. Treason is just par for the course these days, though, and most Americans are utterly incapable of recognizing just what ‘treason’ is. In fact, treason seems to be rather fashionable in these ultra-politically correct times. But, I digress. Rest in peace, Zeituni, but know that you’ll always be remembered as a celebrity pawn in our treasonous government’s scheme to overrun this nation with cheap illegal alien labor.
