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

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.

Of course they’re white Christians. They never would get deported if the were Muslim or black. America what have we become?

But we can’t deport illegal Mexicans? This family needs to enter the US through it’s southern border.

This White Christian family will be deported after doing everything right, while illegal squatters from Central and South America and the Middle East are welcomed with open arms on blatantly bogus claims of persecution in their native countries. This is outrageous.

Armed men should surround the home and accompany the family wherever they go and stand against, at the potential loss of their own life, the government force that uses law and arbitration to dictate evil in a land of liberty and freedom.

We are never going to get away from the fact that, someone, sometime is going to have to stand against an army ... and it won't be pretty, and it may never even be known ... but it is the way we became free and the lack of it is how we are losing freedom.

Obama relied on the FDR precedent of returning a ship full of Jews to the nazis.

This is DISGRACEFUL. Criminal foreign invaders roam American streets and Obozo does nothing, in fact encourages them. A family comes to America LEGALLY and want to home-school, so they are extreme and need to be sent packing. FUBO and F every moron who voted for this communist dicktaster. Oh, did I spell that wrong?

Of course Obama opposed the family.

They challenge the authority of an oppressive state.

He doesn’t want them giving sleepy Americans ideas.

It might make for an interesting bargaining position...have a Republican politician float the notion that he would consider relaxing his position on illegal immigration if the German family would be allowed to stay as well.

Also, I think a new petition should be put up on Obama’s petition site!

Lots of news being missed now that America is distracted by the Ukraine situation.

Just this morning Judge Napolitano talked about a federally funded gun sting that deliberately broke federal law. Apparently the news broke Friday but this morning was the first I heard it.

This family does not fit the profile of being easily re-educated into future socialist sheeple so therefore they are viewed as undesirable by the current satanic regime ruling The People’s Rupublik of The USSA.

That is the least of his [Obama's] worries. The sleepy "Americans" are too busy worshiping Obama and watching the main stream media. Only a few have woken up and those few probably saw the bastard for what he is all along.

The Germans were foolish to seek sanctuary in the US. There are Latin American countries that would be far more helpful, and are historically far friendlier to Germans.

“...a petition we can sign??...”

It sounds like another job for Senator Cruz, Sessions, or some conservative. Who would be willing to take up their cause (have their caseworker work for someone who is not their constituent)?

Not to mention Ike returning Russian ex-pats to Russia, ex-pats that wanted to join the west during WWII.

See: Operation Keelhaul.

Update from Michael Farris’ facebook page:

BREAKING NEWS!!! The Romeikes can stay!!!

Today, a Supervisor with the Department of Homeland Security called a member of our legal team to inform us that the Romeike family has been granted “indefinite deferred status”. This means that the Romeikes can stay in the United States permanently (unless they are convicted of a crime, etc.)

This is an incredible victory that can only be credited to our Almighty God.

We also want to thank those of who spoke up on this issue—including that long ago White House petition. We believe that the public outcry made this possible while God delivered the victory.

This is an amazing turnaround in 24 hours. Praise the Lord.

Proverbs 21: 1 “The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord, He guides it wherever He pleases.”
