Obama’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango The Illegal Immigrant
A Kenyan aunt of Obama who has lived illegally in the U.S. for years. Onyango is the half sister of the Obama’s late father. Obama calls her “Auntie Zeituni.” In 2002, Onyango applied for public housing in Boston and also requested political asylum from violence in Kenya. She was ordered deported in 2004, the year a federal judge denied her asylum application, but remained in the country. Americans for Legal Immigration posted its “public demand” on its Web site, basically telling Obama he’s a hypocrite if he won’t have his aunt arrested and removed to her native Kenya. Onyanga was found living in an impoverished Boston neighborhood by the news media in October 2008. Then, on the first of November, an Associated Press story appeared that detailed how Onyango now in Cleveland had actually been an illegal immigrant living under a deportation order for four years. Obama claimed he had been unaware Onyango was living in the country illegally. Onyango’s next immigration hearing is slated for February 2010.
Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, “Improper Entry by Alien,” any citizen of any country other than the United States who:
- Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or
- Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
- Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;
has committed a federal crime.
Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.
“Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”
Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):
A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:
* assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or
* encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or
* knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his or her work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief. I guess the Laws are DIFFERENT since it’s Obama’s Illegal Aunt! What Do You Think?
