While the White House and many lawmakers push to grant legal status to immigrants who crossed the border illegally, the Romeike family thought they followed the rules -- but now face deportation.
They are devout Catholics who emigrated from Germany in 2008 to home school their six children in Tennessee. As Uwe Romeike told Fox News, it is illegal to do that in Germany.
"We don't have the freedom to home school our children in Germany," Romeike told Fox News.
The U.S. granted the Romeikes political asylum, but in 2010 the Justice Department intervened, ruling that home-schooling could not be used as grounds to seek citizenship.
The department has ordered the Romeikes be deported. "Now it means same thing as in Germany," Uwe Romeike said with a chuckle.
The family is appealing the ruling. Their case set for April 23 before the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati.
Home-schoolers in Germany face not just fines, but the potential removal of children from their parents' custody. That is a level of punishment the Romeikes say rises to persecution.

That’s right, throw out the good people and keep the ones that are teaching their children to hate Jews and blow themselves up..
3.They came here legally.
Three strikes against them.
I wonder...from the apprearance of the mother on FOX news last evening, she looked very pregnant. Get a good lawyer to defer the deportation for about 2 months and the baby will be born a U.S. citizen. Voila! Problem solved for all the family.
White, Christian, homeschoolers, law-abiding...they must go. While the hateful, arrogant, racist LaRaza types can break the law, demand amnesty, collect welfare, drop anchor babies, and not only do they get to stay, but we can’t even offend them by calling them illegal!
Really, how much more of this are we going to take? What’s the breaking point?
The Home School Legal Defense Assoc (HSLDA) has posted a petition on the White House’s website to force the Obama administration to directly address this. The address is
and the petition has already received 112,499 signatures (as of a few minutes ago). FReepers should add their signatures to this to show their support of parental rights and individual liberty.
HSLDA has also posted more info at their own website:
You want to grant political asylum for homeschooling? Well that means we are lowering the bar enormously for asylum. Think of all the other claims anyone could make if that’s permitted.
The US granted an illegal the right to stay because he was a victim of Hurricane Mitch! That was like 15 years ago! Insane.
A former INS agent reports that the official court summons, called a Notice to Appear, must list the specific violations, called “allegations,” committed by the family. Usually each individual one begins with, “ You are not a citizen or national of the US; you are a native and citizen of Germany; You entered the US on (date) as (entry status),” and so on.
A careful reading between the lines will show the additional (unspecified) allegations of “you are white; you are Christian; you are not a potential democrat.”
No other explanation, given the obama fondness for undocumented democrats of color flooding from the south.
Yet obama’s illegal alien Aunt Zetuti (or whatever the he’ll her name is) and drunk driving illegal alien Uncle Something Kenyanese get to stay?
Because Title 28 contains statutes which govern all federal courts,
the consistent use of “United States” to refer to the federal
government carries enormous weight. Title 28 is the latest word
on this subject, as revised, codified and enacted into positive law
on June 25, 1948. Moreover, the Supremacy Clause elevates
Title 28 to the status of supreme Law of the Land.
To make matters worse and to propagate more confusion,
the entity “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”
incorporated twice in the State of Delaware:
The main problem that arises from these questions is that
United States Attorneys are now filing lawsuits and
prosecuting criminal INDICTMENTS in the name of the
“UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” [sic]
but without any powers of attorney to do so. Compare
28 U.S.C. 547 (which confers powers of attorney to represent
the “United States” and its agencies in federal courts):
They are NOT “United States of America Attorneys”, OK?
First of all, they do NOT have any powers of attorney
to represent Delaware corporations in federal courts;
Congress never appropriated funds for them to do so
and Congress never conferred any powers of attorney
on them to do so either.
Secondly, the 50 States are already adequately represented
by their respective State Attorneys General; therefore,
U.S. Attorneys have no powers of attorney to represent
any of the 50 States of the Union, or any of their agencies,
They are “U.S. Attorneys” NOT “U.S.A. Attorneys”, OK?
Accordingly, it is willful misrepresentation for any U.S. Attorney
to attempt to appear in any State or federal court on behalf
of the “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” [sic]. And,
such misrepresentation is actionable under the McDade Act
at 28 U.S.C. 530B:
Their only hope is to sneak in from Mexico, claim to be black and pretend they don’t understand English.
Where is John Boehner, Marco Rubio, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and Mr Toomey on this one?
Crickets . . . ?
They are being threatened to have their children permanently removed for raising them according to their faith. Political asylum is certainly justified on the grounds of religious persecution.
This regime is granting asylum to gays, simply because they’re gay.
