From Huffington Post:
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said he is skeptical about the recent decision to grant asylum to President Barack Obama’s Kenyan aunt, Zeituni Onyango, a ruling that will allow her to stay in the United State while she pursues citizenship.
“Traditionally, asylum has been granted to those that demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution in their home countries,” King noted in a release. “A judge granted President Obama’s aunt amnesty through asylum despite her blatant disregard for the Rule of Law. Ms. Onyango has been living in the country illegally since her first application for asylum was rejected and she was ordered to be deported in 2004.”
According to King, the New York Times report that Onyango wished to be granted asylum on the grounds that “she would face undue attention and perhaps danger in Kenya because of her relationship to President Obama,” may not be sufficient.
