Family affairs, indeed!
Former President Barack Obama’s brother, Malik Obama, decided to speak out against his brother’s boycott of Trump’s decision to have the DACA program revoked:
Barack Obama calls President Trumps decision on ending DACA “cruel”. Complete Hypocrisy!Why didn’t he lift a single finger to help his Aunt?
— Malik Obama (@ObamaMalik) September 5, 2017
At the time, Obama never lifted a finger to help her out, well not until 2010, when a federal judge (not Obama), granted her with asylum. Obama cared so little for his aunt he didn’t even attend her funeral.
Her body was later transferred to Kenya where she was buried. The costs fell on her family, without having Obama contributing. As Obama stated on the Dreamers earlier, they are “some of our best and brightest young people… who want to contribute to the country we love.”
What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray. What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals – that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation.
Barack Obama was also caught noting on several occasions, “I cannot pass amnesty through executive action… I am not a dictator.”
Here what was said about the DACA introduction program while Obama still served as President: “In bypassing Congress, Obama blatantly ignored the rule of law that is the foundation of our democracy and violated his presidential oath to uphold the laws of this land.”
Ramos was quick to set the record straight with Obama:
“Mr. President, my question will be as follows: With an executive order, could you be able to stop deportations of the students? And if that’s so, that links to another of the questions that we have received through univision.com. We have received hundreds, thousand, all related to immigration and the students. Kay Tomar (ph) through univision.com told us — I’m reading — “What if at least you grant temporary protective status, TPS, to undocumented students? If the answer is yes, when? And if no, why not?”
To this, Obama replied:
“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed, and I know that everybody here at Bell is studying hard, so you know that we have three branches of government. Congress passes the law, the Executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws, and then the Judiciary has to interpret the laws, there are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system, that for me to simply, through Executive Order, ignore those Congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

Well, there you have it, folks- when your most immediate family memeber suspects your intentions, what is there to say about the rest of us!
