The news of Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt came into the light during his 2008 campaign for President. Just a few short years later, Zeituni Onyango died on Tuesday at the age of just 61.
Onyango made national headlines as she stayed in the country illegally for 10 years after being denied asylum from Kenya. The entitled woman went on to several news interviews where she explained her belief that everything given to her by the U.S. government was something she deserved.
Spouting on about the American dream, the misinformed illegal alien managed to stay in the country illegally, without fear of deportation and even managed to secure housing, paid for by the government. When asked if she felt that she was willingly taking advantage of the charity given by America, she simply explained that she wasn’t.
Furthermore infuriating Americans and immigrants who followed the rules, she went on to say that America has an, “obligation,” to grant her citizenship. She had only recently been granted asylum as the judge feared for her safety upon returning to Kenya due to her nephew’s position.
Apparently Onyango had recently been suffering from and receiving treatment for cancer and respiratory problems. Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong relayed that Obama’s aunt died earlier in a Boston rehabilitation center.
Wong explained that Onyango was born in Kenya in 1952 under a mango tree. She went on to share that after getting to know her, she discovered that Onyango, “was an awesome, funny, shrewd, smart lady born at the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Describing why she thought in such a way, Wong mentioned, “If she was only born in America or born in more Western open society instead of being bogged down by tribes, lineage and being a woman in Kenya, she could have been anything she wanted to be.”
