Zeituni Onyango, Barack Obama and the American Dream

crossposted from Blog @ MoreWhat.com

Imagine that! Another illegal immigrant claims the ‘system’ caused her problems. Nevermind that this illegal is related to the current POTUS. Because that will only dredge up the earlier criticism of why Barack Obama appears to have done nothing for his relative(s) when they could use the help or that this is one more political opportunity to not let a crisis go to waste. Even if it is a family one rather than a national one.

This IS a case in point on why conservative principles of self-reliance, self-discipline, individual rights AND RESPONSIBILITY as well as limited government, free markets and the rule of law are regaining their rightful place in America. Thank the Tea Party.

…Zeituni Onyango, 58 – a Kenyan native living in a South Boston housing project – won her bid to stay in the United States. She had been here illegally since 2004.

An interview with WBZ-TV Onyango declared, “If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.”

This is likely the sentiment shared by every illegal immigrant in the United States. This one was here illegally since 2004, receiving medical treatment, $700 per month in disability checks, living in public housing and claiming the system ripped her off. How many people believe the situation is reversed?

The same judge who refused Onyango asylum in 2004 recently reversed that decision. You don’t suppose Barry from DC had anything to do with that do you? Being president would not even require personal attention from the One. The judge may well have considered career implications while arriving at both decisions.

Is it really necessary to state this simple rule again? If a citizen of another country wants to live in the United States they need to follow the rule of law. This is not rocket science folks.

“To me, America’s dream became America’s worst nightmare,” she told the TV station in her first interview since being granted asylum.

So one might ask, what’s keeping you here?
