    More on the Romeike homeschooling deportation case

    Last week we examined the case of the Romeike family, which is facing deportation to Germany where they will be persecuted and possibly prosecuted for homeschooling their children, DOJ seeks deportation of family persecuted in Germany for homeschooling.

    On Saturday night Mike Huckabee had a segment on the case (h/t Atlas Shrugs):

    Ok then – just what are the limits LI posters would put on Political Assylum education matters.

    Almost all education syllabi in the eastern & increasingly successful Asian systems are secular. Almost all require compulsory adherence to attendance or approved curricula in whatever & wherever they are taught.

    If family x from Yemen did not like that girls are required to attend school & they hold religiously that girls ought not be educated – could they apply ?

    Btw judging on the neat hair – there are no Einsteins in there. There is a strong link between the state of Einstein’s hair & his creativity – the worse the better.

    We certainly can’t allow anyone to discredit the fine work of the US Department of Education by home-schooling their children, depriving them their basic human right of liberal indoctrination.

    Mr. Romeike must have voted for Romney…

      They are seeking political asylum – hence not voters yet . (Hopefully ) .

      They are not being prevented from homeschooling in the USA. They are trying to convince the Us authorities they are religious & educational refugees.

      Why can they not just get a residency visa until the kids are old enough not to have to got school?

    This case has tremendous implications for the us here. If our courts uphold the DoJ view, then that could well mean that our DoJ or other federal departments could issue a ruling similar to the German’s regarding our rights as parents vs. our children and how we school them or train them or entertain them or what have you. This is just another instant of Obama’s folks wanting to exert their control over our beings as individuals. God help us if DoJ’s viewpoint is upheld by an American Court.

    Ok – there is an American army guy who went AWOL in 2008 & applied for political asylum in Germany.

    His reasons are that as a apache technician he would be forced to be involved in crimes against humanity .

    His case was denied by Germany in 2011 & he has appealed . It will now go to the EU court.

    So it goes.

    What do you think the EU ought do ? Thumb their noses at the USA? Yeah you would be hopping mad if they did.

    I still suspect this case is about precedent.of Asylum & Regugee Staus decisions between allies.
