Funny how the Obama bunch is fine with importing tens of millions of lawbreaking foreigners from criminal cultures (like Mexico) but will not accept a German homeschool family who face punishment at home for keeping the kids out of state school. Perhaps if the Romeikes were Kenyan Muslims instead of European Christians, America’s diversity-beguiled government might be more welcoming.
More than 100,000 Americans signed a White House petition favoring the family’s asylum case. That number is a threshold that is supposed to require a response from the White House.
The family was threatened with criminal prosecution in Germany for homeschooling their kids, so the Romeike request for asylum was grounded in genuine danger. European nations take the liberal indoctrination of the young very seriously; for example, Sweden strongly suggests parents hand over their one-year-olds for daycare to raise rather than mom and dad at home.
