Obama's Kenyan aunt arrives in a wheelchair to plead with judge not to throw her out of U.S.

Barack Obama’s Kenyan ‘auntie’ appeals last night to an immigration judge not to throw her out of America.
Zeituni Onyango, 57, who turned up to the hearing in a wheelchair, was predictable to claim that her relationship to the president would make her a target in her homeland’s unstable political climate.
But the hearing at the U.S. Immigration Court in Boston, Massachusetts ended without an urgent decision in her second bid for asylum in the U.S.
The half-sister of Mr Obama’s late father moved to America a decade ago but her first asylum appeal was discarded.
The president affectionately refers to Ms Onyango as ‘Auntie Zeituni’ in his memoir Dreams from My Father and described meeting her during a 1988 trip to Kenya.
But he has adamantly denied that he knew his aunt was living in the U.S. and said she would not get any particular treatment.
