leave a comment »

Onyango, 57, who is the Kenyan half-sister of Obama’s late father, has been living in Boston illegally since being ordered deported in 2004. Last year Onyango was granted a temporary stay to remain in the country by U.S. Immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro and he agreed to reopen her case.

Today, Onyango gets a second chance to make her case for political asylum before Judge Shapiro in Boston. The Burden is on Onyango, as an asylum seeker, to prove a well-founded feear of persecution in her home country of Kenya.

Our Attorney, Hanishi Ali, was referenced by AP reporter Denise Lavoie, for the full AP article please see: http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/8ef5320729ce4298abefc1903704c7d5/Article_2010-02-03-US-Obama-Aunt/id-p6d30e5816eb24c7da71e78c5fb9c8ab1
