Hopefully, it will be -- 3 strikes you’re out.

Boston, Ma. – Zeituni Onyango, aunt of President Obama and illegal immigrant from Kenya, is scheduled for a deportation hearing on April 1. Since being ordered deported in 2004, Onyango has resided in the U.S. illegally; living five years in Boston's taxpayer-funded public housing. This will be the third effort by the 56 year-old to avoid deportation. Onyango came to the U.S. in 2002, seeking political asylum from the violence in Kenya.

How will the fame of her nephew Obama affect her in Kenya?
Would she be in danger?

These aren't black and white issues. I hope the hearing takes that into consideration.

In this case she would be a hero. Kenya is very proud of Obama -- and Obamas relatives are now local celebrities.

True. She may even receive free housing there. She should not receive preferential treatment simply because she is Obama’s aunt. She was already ordered deported TWICE. Enough is enough.

Absolutely. I still wonder, though who gave her advice about evading deportation and how to get public housing even though she is illegal.

Sounds like something a 'community activist' would know how to do, doesn't it?

You play the race card in almost every single one of your posts that I have read. Are you so insecure about your race that you have to blame others for all your problems? Then again I am very new to this forum so I haven't seen too many of your posts.

Agreed. For those on the side of the illegal alien supporter coin, there's a consistent theme of said racial inferiority complex on a daily basis. Playing the race card is like any other card game. When all you have is one trump card, even though you know it's a loser, all you can do is keep playing it.
