Obama's Aunt Deied Deportation Order

Just before the election it was revealed that one of Barack Obama'a Kenyan aunts was living in Boston despite an order to leave the country. She had been denied asylum by an immigration judge and ordered deported. She was released to get her affairs in order, but did leave. There are a half million similar cases. To defy deportation places the immigrants in little danger so long as they do not call attention to themselves -- like get swept up in a workplace raid or stopped for a traffic violation. In Obama's aunt's case, a lawyer will take up an appeal. (See AP article.)
