Once she was determined who she was, She finally was granted asylum in 2010 by a judge who said she could be in danger if she returned to Kenya because of her relationship with Obama. She was written about by Mr. Obama in his Auto Biography as one of the leading lights in his life. I absolutely agree that she needed to be protected, and granted Asylum after that. And the fact that she had been here illegally for years to me was irrelevant from that point forward.
What I do find horribly sad, is that despite the fact that she is related to one of the most powerful men it the world, that she remained in Boston Public Housing for the remainder of her days.
Her Obituary is Lovely:
Onyango was born in Kenya in May 1952 under a mango tree and was delivered by a midwife, Wong said. She raised a family in Kenya and worked in the computer department of Kenya Breweries, she said.
“She was an awesome, funny, shrewd, smart lady born at the wrong place at the wrong time,” Wong said. “If she was only born in America or born in more Western open society instead of being bogged down by tribes, lineage and being a woman in Kenya, she could have been anything she wanted to be.”
Glad she got to spend the rest of her days where she wanted to be, in America and a more Open Society via the kind heart of the American Taxpayer… Too bad she could not spend them in nicer digs via a relative, say her Nephew?
