Obama Admin. Wins Appeal to Force German Homeschooling Family to Return to Persecution

Photo Credit: WNDAn appeal is planned for a family of homeschoolers the Obama administration wants to deport to their home country of Germany to face persecution from education officials there who seek fines and jail for such individuals.

The word comes today from officials with the Home School Legal Defense Association, who have been arguing on behalf of the Romeike family since they fled Germany in 2008 and were granted asylum in the U.S. in 2010 by Immigration Judge Lawrence O. Burman.

The Obama administration was unhappy with that decision and appealed, and the grant was rescinded by the Board of Immigration Appeals in 2012.

A panel from the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently heard arguments on the dispute, and ruled today that the asylum request should be denied.

“We believe the Sixth Circuit is wrong, and we will appeal their decision,” said Michael Farris, HSLDA founder and chairman. “America has room for this family, and we will do everything we can to help them.”

    this is pathetic and treasonous attitude by Obama Administration, spending so much of our (taxpayer) money to deport good outstanding Europeans while sending material and staff to Mexico to encourage them to illegally “sneak (it’s a cakewalk these days) across the border to enjoy our free food stamps and SSI benefits – more taxpayer money, anything and everywhere to bring down the culture and dollar.

  • Uh, so after using the IRS to tamper with free elections in 2012 is this knd of pure bias from the gov’mint a surprise? This is a no-brainer. The family needs to add a z to the end of their last name, go to Texas and pick vegetables in the valley a year, and wait for amnesty.

    Let’s get this straight. muslim terrorist can come here, receive $100,000 of our tax dollars and blow up our people, Mexicans come over illegally, receive free education, food stamps, welfare and work “under the table” without paying taxes, some receive free guns from the US government to shoot our people and that is OK. A family comes here legally from Germany are self-sufficient without receiving our tax dollars they mind their own business, do not blow us up, and the devils in DC want to send them back where they came from, even at the risk they may loose custody of their children. Something smells fishy ! Know what lucifer and obama have in common? lucifer is the “father of lies” obama is the “liar-in-chief” IMPEACH THE DEVIL !

  • This is really dispicable. Obama, as well as even such Republicans as Rand Paul and Marco Rubio are so concerned about making a “pathway” to citizenship for “11 million” illegal aliens, that they are willing to grant massive and distructive amnesty to what could be a majority of criminals, deadbeats, and low level entitlement hangers-on, who will only be a overwhelming burden on our society. But one family here legally with a genuine need of political asyllum from real persecution is being denied access to the safety and security of the American Dream and Freedom, through no fault of their own. This is a disgrace and absolute shame. Praying for the intervention, protection, and provision of the Sovereign LORD GOD ALMIGHTY on the beautiful family. Praying that Americans rise up and demand that this family be given an appology for this deplorable, dishonorable and unAmerican treatment they have received at the hands of our Courts and Judicial system under the Obama Administration, and that they be granted the right to pursue legal citizenship here in the United States.

  • If the family consisted of gay parents, atheist parents, brown parents, communist parents etc., they would have been welcomed with open arms.

    So people from a hard-working, well-educated country get deported, while endless millions of uneducated Mexicans get a free pass? Not to mention criminals and deadbeats like some of Obama’s own relatives. Democrats are all about buying votes, apparently, and couldn’t care less about the continued survival of the US.
