I bet she will remain in this country, and she will continue to rely on taxpayers for her support.

BOSTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's aunt buried her face in her hands and sobbed as she described her anguish that she no longer has contact with him and his family after the revelation she had been living illegally for years in the United States in public housing.

"Before, we were family. But right now, there is a lot of politics, and me, I am not interested in any politics at all," said Onyango, whose appeal for asylum from her native Kenya is before an immigration judge in Boston.

The Obamas are her only family in the United States, she said.

"It is very sad when such a thing happens. There are people, outsiders, you know, they come in between, they divide a family," she said last week. "It's not easy."

She refused to discuss how she affords to live now or who is paying for her attorney.

I'll bet she was all set to move into the Whitehouse.

Funny that she has not been 'legalized' despite Obama being President for over a year now.

That's because he wouldn't dare and risk the ire of the anti-illegals and the demands that the pro-illegals would make to then legalize all other illegals.

Which also dovetails with 'amnesty' being pushed further and further back---------much to the dismay of illegal aliens everywhere.

I can imagine her singing the "Movin On Up" song (from The Jeffersons) as she was watching the election results.

The "outsiders" she refers to... might they be US Law Enforcement personnel enforcing (or at least attemping to enforce) the laws of our nation? Which she is criminally violating? Hmmmmmm?

Here's an idea. The President's family give her $10,000 ( they have over $3 million - they can spare that for a relative) and allow her to return to Kenya. Once back there she can apply for a Visa to come back to the U.S. through normal channels. Of course if she were to be sponsored by Barack, he would have to make sure she does not go back on public assistance.
I wonder how his relatives in other countries feel about his neglecting them? If her were a compassionate man, he would spread his wealth around at least to his family members in need.
Maybe he could make the money a Christmas gift! Is Aunt Zeituni going to celebrate Christmas?
