Publisher's note: How is this possible?! A family of legal immigrants that came here in 2008 seeking political asylum so they could freely exersise their faith and home school their children just like scores of men, women, and children did back in the early part of the 1600's is facing deportation. They are facing deportation because our current administration does not believe that German Law forbidding home schooling constitutes persecution, when clearly they may lose custody of their children if returned to Germany.
We in America need to be aware and very concerned about this situation, because with the growing dark cloud of Common Core and anti-Christian sentiment in our own back yard, it could very likely set a precedent of governmental interference with home schooling in the United States.
Fox News: Uwe and Hannelore Romeike came to the United States in 2008 seeking political asylum. They fled their German homeland in the face of religious persecution for homeschooling their children. They wanted to live in a country where they could raise their children in accordance with their Christian beliefs.
The Romeikes were initially given asylum, but the Obama administration objected – claiming that German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.
“The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society,” the Justice Department wrote in a legal brief last year. “Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany.”
On Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the Romeike’s appeal – paving the way for the Christian family of eight to be deported.Add a comment
