James Taranto: Obama Is Pandering To Xenophobes
The news that Barack Obama`s aunt
Zeituni Onyango has been living illegally in
the last four years
(at least! — apparently she`s been coming to the
since 1975) in
public housing and has
for work she does as a "resident health advocate"
says a lot about tour immigration crisis.
Barack Obama`s passive remark that "laws should
be followed" reflects the presidential candidate`s
pandering to xenophobes—presumably us—I see it as
further exposing his hypocrisy.
I`ll offer another example. In light
of Obama`s comments referring to those of us who do not
want to "redistribute the wealth" as
exactly, is selfish?
Short answer: Obama and John McCain
as well as other politicians who support open borders
and amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Their selfishness centers on
providing cheap labor for their campaign contributors
As Patrick Cleburne asked
in his blog, what is a Third World alien with no
cultural ties to
Why is Obama`s aunt still here?
Why hasn`t she been deported following the
rejection of her asylum claim
four years ago?
Yet Onyango, in addition to the
housing and public funds she receives, no doubt also
gets free health care since she uses a cane and lives in
ground floor apartment
reserved for people with a handicap.
All of this as an illegal immigrant!
These benefits should be exclusively reserved for
Americans. The Boston Globe reported that more
than 20,000 residents are on waiting lists for the
apartment Onyango occupies. To deny that housing to
Americans is more selfishness in order to accommodate
Onyango is more Obama selfishness. [BHA
