One of the interesting sub-texts in Auntie's (non)-deportation hoax is that U.S. Rep. John Conyers, and others, insist that the leak about her illegal overstay came from the Department of Homeland Security, the Bush administration or John McCain's campaign. [Conyers Demands Investigation into Pre-Election Leak Over Obama's Aunt, Wilmington Journal, November 18 2008]
But over the four years since a judge denied Auntie's asylum request, how many hundreds of people must have known that she remained in the U.S.?
One day in 2004, she leaves her building excited about the possibility of becoming a Legal Permanent Resident. But she comes home in tears!
Among those that certainly realized Auntie's illegal status included her neighbors, her church group and maybe her mailman as well as her newspaper delivery boy.
Maybe some, illegal aliens too, had relatives who were ordered deported but then left in an orderly fashion. That might have created resentment among them toward Auntie.
Annoyed, they may have contacted interested parties including the media by using Juan Mann's guide to reporting illegal aliens.
Really, the possibilities of who exposed Auntie are endless. For Conyers' to imply that the leak was, by definition, politically motivated is foolish.
