Obama's aunt says 'US obligated' to make her a citizen

• AP
US President Barack Obama's aunt, who lived for years illegally in Boston, said in her first interview since being granted asylum that the United States has an "obligation" to grant her citizenship.

"If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen," Zeituni Onyango told WBZ-TV in an interview that first aired yesterday.

Ms Onyango came to the US from Kenya in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She was granted asylum in May by the same judge who said she could be in danger if she returned to her homeland.
