President Barack Obama’s Aunt Zeituni admits she illegally overstayed her visa. Instead of obeying the law, she went to a judge in 2003 with a bogus request for asylum. She was turned down. She ignored the deportation order and instead filed an appeal. She was told again: It’s illegal for you to stay.

She’s still here.



Mr. Graham apparently doesn't understand what the word "appeal" means. I don't know what the specific merits of her case are, but it looks like she went through the proper legal channels to stay.

Has anyone demanded she produce her birth certificate yet?

want to buy a big bridge i own in brooklyn? :rofl2:
just kidding Brian!
but i'm with the editorial on this one.



I'm certainly not saying I believe she deserves asylum. I don't know anything about the circumstances. All I'm saying is you don't have to exit the country while your case is under appeal. That's the whole point of appealing.

She is the aunt of the president. I think there may be more problems deporting her then letting her stay. Now, I DO think that she should be made accountable for all the money she collected from us taxpayers after she was ordered to deport! I want my money back! (Yes, I know that would never happen)
