The Curious Case Of Obama's Aunt Zeituni OnyangoTopics: Immigration and Border Issues, Political News and commentaries
John Derbyshire makes it clear at The Corner that Obama's lying, immigration law-breaking, Aunt Zeituni Onyango that's been living off the American taxpayers was granted asylum in the U.S.A. three months ago after a phony disgraceful hearing before the Executive Office for Immigration Review for one reason and one reason only - Barack Obama and an obviously over-cooperative judge (emphasis added):
.... [T]he Boston Globe has been giving us some details of Judge Shapiro's reasoning, details winkled out of the Justice Department via a Freedom of Information Act request. Reading the Globe report, you can see why the government would much rather not have released these details. Judge Shapiro's reasoning is, not to put too fine a point on it, a blazing disgrace to the American legal profession.Take the time to read it all ...
It is now perfectly plain that Aunt Zeituni received preferential treatment because of her connection to Obama. Her asylum claim is utterly without merit, and Judge Shapiro's adjudication of it demonstrates beyond doubt that we live in a nation not of laws, but of men -- and men's aunts.
.... Judge Shapiro's findings are a disgrace. The only evidentiary foundation for them is unsubstantiated claims made by an applicant the judge himself acknowledges to have lied at previous hearings.
This whole case is a shame and a scandal. Zeituni Onyango has been given special treatment because of her relation to the president. She had failed to obey previous court orders, was a fugitive from justice, living off the public fisc; yet she was permitted to reopen a previously denied asylum case years afterward. How often does that happen?
I'll save you the trouble of researching it: it never happens. It happened in this case because of who she is, in outrageous disregard of all law, rules, and precedent. If the citizens of Boston have the spleen their ancestors had, they will tar and feather Leonard Shapiro and run him out of town on a rail.
Oh, and speaking of precedent: What would normally happen with such a highly questionable decision as this, is that the Department of Homeland Security would file an appeal of Judge Shapiro's farcical decision. Will the DHS actually do so? Don't hold your breath.
If you're a bit slack-jawed over this, don't be. This is the kind of shenanigan and disrespect for our laws and Constitution we've learned to expect during the Obama regime. Fortunately, November is just around the corner and we can begin to bring sanity back in our government.
