BOSTON -- A national group is calling on President Barack Obama to deport his aunt, an illegal immigrant who was living in Boston.

The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC filed an arrest request with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Monday and issued a public demand for Obama to deport Zeituni Onyango.

Onyango is currently living in Ohio and has vowed to fight against being deported. Four years ago, an immigration judge instructed her to leave the country after her request for asylum from her native Kenya was rejected.

"President Obama has promised the American public that his administration will honor the principles of open government, the Constitution and the Rule of Law," said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "Obama must either deport his aunt or destroy his own credibility by showing her favoritism."

Last year, Onyango was found living in Boston. Obama said that he didn't know that one of his relatives was living in the city illegally and believes the appropriate laws should be followed.

The law is the law. No one should be considered above it. It's way past time for Auntie Squatter and every other illegal alien in this country to leave. If you have anchors please take them with you. We don't have the financial resources or the desire to support you or them.

Obama is the president, not the head of INS. It would be abuse of power for him to intervene on either side in his aunts situation. Certainly you should have learned that after all of Sarah Palin's shenanigans.

An immigration judge has reviewed her case, and she was ordered deported 4 years ago. Itís a travesty that she is still here, and living in subsidized housing. Her story underscores the lax enforcement of our laws.

An anti-immigration group yesterday called on President Obama to arrest and deport his aunt, appealing to conservative activists to make her case a symbol of his administration's immigration enforcement policies.
got that? an anti-immigration group. not an anti-illegal immigration group. for the 4,955,113th time, pro-illegal immigration apologists in the media conflate illegal and legal immigration.

so - what was the name of this so-called 'anti-immigration group', you ask?

"Americans for Legal Immigration"

honestly, you can't make this crap up

You can't possibly be refering to ALIPAC can you? They are an avid anti-illegal org. Maybe you should check out thier web site. Besides all that, JDubsMom is right! The law is the law. Lead by example.

uh, yeah. i made note of that. the wapo, on the other hand, smeared them with a blanket label of being anti-immigration. period.

see the difference?
