BOSTON (AP) - President Barack Obama’s aunt said nothing as she was led away from a U.S. Immigration Court in Boston where she’s making a second bid for asylum for her native Kenya.

Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUH’-nee awn-YAHN’-goh) attended a hearing that lasted just a few minutes, then left with her attorneys. Federal Protective Service officers kept reporters away from her as she left through a back door.

Her hearing was closed to the media at the request of her attorney.

Onyango was ordered deported in 2004 but has continued to live in public housing in Boston.

Obama has said he did not know his aunt was living here illegally and believes laws covering the situation should be followed.
