"Aunt Zeituni":
Poster Child for a Broken Immigration System

"If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen." That's a quote from Barack Obama's 58-year-old Aunt Zeituni, living off the dole in the U.S. on a system she's never paid a dime into. What about a family's "obligation" to take care of its own?

She's "broke," she says, although she was able to hire a prominent immigration lawyer in Cleveland. She came to the U.S. in 2000, became ill, she says, and "couldn't afford to leave" when in 2004 she was ordered to leave the country. In 2005 she attended Obama's swearing in as the Junior Senator from Illinois. In 2008 she attended his inauguration. But she says, "Obama did not know my whereabouts." Evidently this family has lying in their genes. She says Obama "never pulled any strings" for her. Of course not.

Here she is at her 2010 immigration court date where her expensive immigration lawyer got the judge to grant her US asylum. So she's a "victim"--why? "I didn't take advantage of the system," she says. "The system took advantage of me." Obama's aunt continues to live in South Boston in public housing, unemployed, and collecting about $700 a month disability. In her interview with a local Boston station, Zeituni seems about as happy to be in this country as her niece-in-law, MicHELLe Obama. She hates the USA but loves the "free stuff"--where have we seen that attitude before?

In the interest of getting this woman off our bloated entitlement rolls, I'm pretty sure U.S. taxpayers would be glad to pay for one last "entitlement" for this woman--a first-class plane ticket back to Kenya.

P.S. So Obama has an aunt living on the dole in South Boston and a half-brother named George Obama living in a box in Kenya. While the lamestream media digs up any dirt they can find on Sarah Palin. You really can't make this stuff up.
