Team Obama wins fight to have Christian home-school family deported

Team Obama wins fight to have Christian home-school family deported
By Todd Starnes | March 03, 2014 | FoxNews.com


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.

“I think this is a part of the Obama administration’s overall campaign to crush religious freedom in this country,” said Michael Farris, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association. His organization is representing family.

“The Obama administration’s attitude toward religious freedom, particularly religious freedom for Christians is shocking,” he told me in an exclusive telephone interview. “I have little doubt that if this family had been of some other faith that the decision would have never been appealed in the first place. They would have let this family stay.”

Had the family stayed in Germany, where homeschooling is illegal, they would have faced the prospect of losing their children. Like the Pilgrims, they fled their homeland yearning for a place where they could be free.

Farris said the religious bias perpetrated by the Obama administration is “palpable.”

“It’s a denial of the essence of America,” he said. “The Pilgrims left England to go to Holland to seek religious freedom. They came here to seek religious freedom and parental rights for their children. Had this administration been waiting at Plymouth Rock, they would’ve told the Pilgrims to go back home.”

There are nearly 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. You’d think the Obama administration could find a place eight immigrants who want to live here legally.

Farris said the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the case sends a chilling message to Americans who currently home school their children.

“This administration thinks it’s a privilege to home school – not a right,” he told me. “We’d better buckle down and be ready to fight them every step of the way.”

As for now, the Romeike family will be able to stay at their four-acre farm in the eastern Tennessee. But it’s only a matter of time before the Obama administration begins formal deportation proceedings.

Last year, I interviewed 15-year-old Daniel Romeike, a soft-spoken boy with aspirations of one day becoming a mechanical engineer. He told me he was afraid of what might happen if the family was deported. He feared being taken from his parents and placed in government custody.

“If I had a chance to talk to President Obama, I would ask him to let us stay in this great country of freedom and opportunity,” Daniel told me.

So on behalf of the Romeike family, I would like personally appeal to President Obama.

Please, Mr. President, have mercy on this Christian family. They came to our shores longing to be free. They left their homeland to escape religious persecution. Please, sir. Welcome them to our land with open arms. Bestow upon them a small measure of grace so they might be able to raise their children in the land of the free, the home of the brave.

Please spare these dear souls.

A friend of mine from the navy was stationed in England and met his wife there. It took her almost 2 years to get here. He had to raise there daughter here while she waited in England.

I don't know why they say that. The last republican in the white house didn't give a shit. Nor will the next.

There are CONSTITUTIONAL rights and then there are FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN rights. There are a host of Constitutional rights that aren't really fundamental human rights, in my view. Otherwise, then everyone ANYWHERE in the world that has their freedom of speech, or assembly, or right to be free from search and seizure, etc. ad infinitum rights violated can come here and get political asylum. That is RIDICULOUS.

Fundamental human rights are very, very limited, and the right to raise your child isn't one. Not even close in my book.

Ridiculous. No. Just....no. Anyone anywhere in the world that isn't allowed to homeschool their child gets to move to the US and stay under asylum? That's completely crazy. What if German's laws are more restrictive on homeschooling, but only allow it in limited circumstances which dont' apply to some particular couple. Now the US courts get to get involved in that entire mess. On taxpayer dollars.

No, no, no.

I don't want either, but then I voted Romney last election so I dont' necessarily fit your parameters either.

Who the hell ever said "open the border to the south" anyway?!?

Every country must have the same constitutional protections as the US!

CP right-wingers (and RWers in general) are so phony. This cause wouldn't even be on the radar if this wasn't a Christian issue. Any other religion, or if it was an atheist, and there would be no protest. They would be pushing them out the door.

So not very long compared to many other countries. I imagine a family would take a little longer though. My wife's sister and family from Peru have been waiting six plus years.

This thread is full of all kinds of fail. It's funny watching people dance around shit that they've spent their entire CP lives arguing against.

Home Schooling?

We'll turn our backs on Mexicans (and the Majority are also Christian btw)who can barely afford to cloth themselves and live in a damn near 3rd world country but gladly welcome Illegals who fled to America (from Germany of all places...) for.....homeschooling.

I can't believe some of you are seriously arguing over Home Schooling. If that's reason enough for Asylum then we might as well just open the doors and grant Asylum to the entire world as im sure there are a lot of Countries in worse shape than Germany with a ****ing laundry list of reasons they should be granted Asylum. Oh the hypocrisy.

Home Schooling

What if they wanted to be Satanists?

Is it still an issue then?

If we inserted "Satanist" instead of Christian, there wouldn't be a single person in here vouching for their Asylum.

These Germans aren't illegals. They were granted asylum which is being revoked.

And if they were a Muslim family seeking asylum from Germany for the expressed reason of being allowed to home educate their children, then deporting them from America would be seen as yet another example of the WASPy powers that be hating brown people.
