OBAMA II: He’s Related To An Illegal!

Several conservative bloggers were outraged to learn that Obama’s aunt is living in the U.S. illegally:

  • Carpenter: “There’s so much that’s personally and politically offensive in this story I don’t know where to start. First, the millionaire Obama leaves his aunt to live in the projects. Obama became rich through his best-selling books based on his own life story. Seems like he could have at least helped the aunt who helped make that story better to tell. So much for spreading the wealth. Second, he takes her money even though she’s an illegal alien. That is against the law. His campaign can’t even screen out illegal money from his FAMILY MEMBERS. This underscores what a huge problem his campaign has had in the campaign finance department. Last, I thought deportation was supposed to be inhuman and undoable. Wasn’t that Obama’s whole rationale for amnesty? He’ll stick up for millions of other illegal aliens but not lift a finger to sponsor his own auntie to stay?? Cold.”
  • NRO‘s Victor Davis Hanson: “How many laws can one break? […] How ethical is it for someone who is in violation of immigration law, and receiving some sort of public subsidy, to then donate money, illegally again, to a campaign? Message: defy immigration law; ignore a deporation order; obtain, again illegally, public assistance; donate illegally to a presidential campagin; and then count on the press attacking those who worry about such serial flouting of the law.”
  • Malkin: “Turns out Aunti Zeituni Onyango, one of Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama’s many relatives made famous in his memoir, is an illegal alien. And not just a run-of-the-mill illegal alien on welfare. She’s one of the hundreds of thousands of deportation fugitives — absconders — whom I’ve been reporting on for the past six years. […] Lucky for Aunti, anyone who thinks she should face the music and get the boot is considered a ‘hater’ and a ‘xenophobe’ and a RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST. Lucky for Aunti, she can always take up shelter in a sanctuary-offering, rule-of-law defying church.”
  • NRO‘s Mark Steyn: “When first I heard about the Undocumented Auntie, I thought I’d finally figured out how this spread-the-wealth thing works: The government taxes Joe the Plumber to fund public housing agencies that illegally provide welfare and accommodation to illegal immigrants thereby freeing up their cash flow to enable them to make illegal campaign contributions to any nephew who might chance to be running for president and get him elected so he can tax Joe the Plumber even more to fund even more public housing for even more illegal immigrants to make even more illegal campaign contributions… Etc.”
