"President Obama: Please take your Aunt Zeituni off our hands"

From Philip Greenspun's blog:

Barack Obama has taken pains to assure Americans that illegal immigrants won’t be able to buy health insurance on his new exchange. They’ll still get free emergency care but they will be prohibited from paying the world’s highest prices for health care. ...

Meanwhile, we taxpayers in Massachusetts are stuck with the bill for housing Obama’s Aunt Zeituni. The Wikipedia entry on this illegal immigrant has a good explanation of how she has avoided deportation thanks to the U.S. court system taking years to process even the simplest cases, e.g., Should a woman who has already twice been ordered deported, but did not leave, be… deported? ...

Massachusetts taxpayers have been paying for Aunt Zeituni’s housing for six years. Ever since Barack Obama’s ascendancy to the White House, we’ve also been paying for extra police details to deter the curious and the press. ...

What could Barack Obama do to help Massachusetts? He owns a 14-room, 6500 square foot house in Chicago (using fossil fuels to heat 6500 square feet for a family of four in one of the coldest parts of the U.S. is apparently a demonstration of one’s commitment to reversing global warming) that presumably sits vacant nearly all year. The house is guarded 24/7 by Secret Service agents. The street is closed to non-residents. Why can’t Aunt Zeituni live there? ...

If Barack Obama wants to convince Americans that his health care plan won’t burden national taxpayers with the cost of caring for illegal immigrants, wouldn’t it be good for him to relieve the taxpayers of Massachusetts of the cost of caring for his illegal immigrant relative?

Via this posting I hereby offer to pay for Aunt Zeituni’s round-trip transportation to Chicago. I will pick her up in her public housing complex, drop her off at the new Southwest Airlines terminal at Logan Airport, buy her a ticket on Southwest, and arrange for my friend Jen to pick her up at Midway. Jen will drop Aunt Zeituni off at the Secret Service barriers and they can escort her to Obama’s house. We will reverse the process to get her back to Boston for her February 4, 2010 immigration hearing (source).

You know, lately Rush Limbaugh has been hinting that he might [personally] send some money to poor Cousin George, living all alone in that mud hut:

Good. She can pop back into the media in time for the 2010 congressional elections.

Steve, you dropped the ball on this one:

In what sense is the president responsible for his aunt?

I bet you have some deadbeats and assholes in your family too.

So we don't have to help the deadbeats in our family, but are legally required to help the deadbeats in our country, even if they are here illegally? I think that's the point. Generosity is easy when you spend someone else's money.

Steve hasn't made a career out of requiring other people to pay for the deadbeat Sailers.

Re: Rush and the impoverished George Obama, I'm hoping that Rush gives that Kenyan village a ton of money on the condition that they rename the place after him.

Rushville, Kenya
Limbaugh Town, Kenya
Rush Limbaugh City, Kenya.

Such a thing is not unprecedented. In 1950, the New Mexico town of Hot Springs, was renamed Truth or Consequences (after the TV show), as a sort of stunt.

Come on, Rush. Do it!

The president, as the chief law enforcement official in the country, is responsible for all the illegals, and especially his aunt.

Mr. Greenspun should remember that it's his duty as a prosperous, educated citizen of Massachusetts to financially support any person of color who should desire such support. And it's also understood that one does not mention such burden in polite society. Or perhaps he would prefer to move to a state with fewer such burdens? How does Texas sound, Mr. Greenspun?
