The following would be headline news across America if Obama was a white Republican. If you recall, over the last few years, two of Obama’s family members were here in the United States illegally. One was ordered deported twice and for years ignored that deportation order but eventually received asylum. Another Obama relative had an ICE warrant out for his arrest for ignoring a deportation order. He too was eventually given asylum.
DC‘s Chuck Ross reports:
Obama is 36 years old and has spent the last eight or nine months in the Rapphannock Regional Facility in Stafford, Va., according to his sister, as his appeal for withholding of removal sits before the Board of Immigration Appeals.
Denied relief most recently on Nov. 6, Obama, who has been in the U.S. since 1997, hopes he can stay in the U.S., claiming he would serve as a high-profile target for al-Shabaab, the Somali terror group whose leader, Ahmed Abdi Godane, was assassinated via U.S. drone strike on Sept. 1.
Though based in Somalia, al-Shabaab, which pledged allegiance to al-Qaida in 2012, is active in Kenya, where the group has carried out several attacks, including one on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi in Sept. 2013, in which 67 people were killed.
Obama initially applied for asylum, filing what’s called an I-589 form. But the application must be filed within a year of the applicant’s arrival in the U.S., which Obama failed to do.
On top of that, Obama has what are called “negative equities” on his record, including DUIs and other crimes.
Though Obama also has a wife and child who are U.S. citizens, an Arlington immigration court judge denied his asylum request on Nov. 6. The proceeding took place in an open courtroom, but was not covered by the media at the time. […]
This is not the first time an immigration judge has ordered an Obama family member’s removal from the U.S. Obama’s half-aunt, Zeituni Onyango, came to the U.S. from Kenya in 2000. She applied for asylum in 2002 but was ordered removed on 2004. She remained in the U.S., living in Boston. When her lapsed immigration status was brought to attention during then-Illinois U.S. Sen. Obama’s 2008 presidential bid, it sparked a media firestorm.
Onyango appealed the initial removal decision and was granted asylum in 2010. Her attorney, Margaret Wong, made an argument similar to George Obama’s – that Onyango should be granted relief because of her high-profile relative. […] Continued @ Daily Caller.
Yet, we’re supposed to believe all is well with Obama?
