WHITE HOUSE CONSIDERING REPEALING DIRECTIVE RELATED TO PRESIDENT'S AUNT

Rate this Entry

Strange politics here. President Bush's Homeland Security Department issued an order last November when the story broke that then Senator Obama's aunt was in the country illegally and subject to deportation. Now the President is seeking to scrap the directive presumably to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest.

    I applaud his effort, and I do not vote for him. Obama realizes this situation is more of a favoritism issue, and he has dealt with it accordingly.

    Obama's aunt story is very interesting compared to the story of Mr. Ng, for whom we also read here.
    They both came on legal documents. They both asked for asylum. They both had the asylum applications rejected. They both had order to leave. They both overstayed.
    The difference is that Mr. Ng worked and supported his American family, while Obama's aunt lived on government support.
    Mr. Ng was arrested and put in jail. Obama's aunt was not.
    I wonder how does it look from a legal point of view.
    Don't understand me wrong. I am not saying that an elderly woman with health problem should be put in jail. I'm just wondering if her situation is a precedent that would, or should change the treatment of other overstays?
