Well, barry’s illegal auntie gets to stay in the US until her next hearing Feb 4th 2010. barry sponsored her over 9 years ago and then “lost track of her”. Rest assured axelrod didn’t. In 2004, her pleas for asylum were rejected and she was ordered deported. She wasn’t. She hid out in a Boston housing complex living on taxpayers and donating to barry’s campaign, until her whereabouts were exposed the weekend prior to the election. You know when barry was warning folks that “they were going to try everything” and that “It’s gonna get nasty, I’m sure, in the next four days.” He knew what was going on.
She then fled to Cleveland and got herself a lawyer, Margaret Wong, to fight deportation. Auntie initially had a court date in December that was pushed back so she could, in not so many words, attend the Inauguration. Which she did right out in the open.
Today was her closed to the media hearing and the judge ruled auntie – half sister of barry Sr – Zeituni Onyango (56) can stay in the country until next year when her case for asylum is re-heard. No reason made public.
Michael Rogers, a spokesman for Margaret Wong:
WONG: The decision as to Ms. Onyango’s request to stay permanently in the U.S. will be made during a second hearing.
What are the odds she will be allowed to stay permanently?
The President believes that the case should run its ordinary course, and neither he nor his representatives have had any involvement.
