THE ILLEGAL INVASION CONTINUES TO CLAIM LIVES AND ROB AMERICANS OF THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

(Sept. 21, 2010) — The acknowledged step-aunt of Barack Hussein Obama, Zeituni Onyango, says that the United States is obligated to give her citizenship now that a judge has allowed her to remain in the country.
A video of her first television interview since the May ruling is here.
Onyango reportedly “moved from Kenya to the United States” in 2000. She “fell ill,” reportedly lived in a homeless shelter for two years, and later began receiving disability income, despite the fact that she was ineligible. Her nephew, Barack Obama, is believed by many to be ineligible to have collected millions of dollars in campaign contributions and to serve as President of the United States because he does not meet the definition of “natural born Citizen.”
Onyango claimed in a television interview that following her hospitalization, she did not have the funds to return to Kenya.
But who paid for her hospital bill? Why did she come to the United States in the first place? Was it to obtain free medical care, or better medical care than she would have received in Kenya, Obama’s “home country?”
In May, Onyango was granted asylum due to a chronic illness and fear of “persecution if forced to return to Kenya” as a “member of a minority tribe.” The judge ruled that she deserved to stay in the United States because “a government official had leaked Onyango’s status to the Associated Press three days before the 2008 presidential election.” In her interview with WBZ TV, Onyango stated that “The system took advantage of me.”
Today, a defense bill containing a provision that would have allowed “some children of illegal immigrants to earn legal status in the U.S.” was defeated, as it lacked the 60 votes necessary for passage in the Senate. Various “immigrants’ rights” groups supported the “DREAM Act,” which would have awarded legal status to “certain undocumented immigrants if they attend college for two years or join the military.” An editorial in The New York Times described it as “inspired” and “the best hope for legalizing any significant number of Americans-in-waiting.”
Gen. Colin Powell had expressed his support for the DREAM Act by stating, “We have to educate our immigrants. The DREAM Act is one way to do that.” Powell also stated that he hires illegal immigrants to work on his home when needed.
…the technical assistance to develop key elements of a bipartisan immigration bill and have taken important steps to make interior enforcement smarter, more effective, and reflective of our values, as well as addressing problems in the detention system to improve accountability and safety.
However, the Obama regime has filed a lawsuit against the state of Arizona over its new immigration law, SB1070 as well as a second lawsuit against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on the grounds that he “s refusing to cooperate with a federal investigation into allegations of discrimination and illegal searches and seizures by the [Justice] department.”
A border patrol agent lost his life in a vehicular accident in 2008; another was killed last summer near San Diego, CA, and this month an agent was killed last week, also in San Diego County. U.S. border agents have been fired upon and have returned fire across the border into Mexico during drug raids that have yielded thousands of pounds of marijuana.
The cost to Americans of illegal immigration is measured in the billions. Medicaid and medical bills for the uninsured are “among the largest costs.” One report states that 12 Americans are killed daily by illegals; another states that many illegal aliens who perpetrate crimes are often arrested multiple times.
While cities are told by appellate courts that they cannot enact their own anti-illegal-immigration laws, others designate themselves “sanctuary cities,” in violation of federal law, apparently without legal challenges.
