As most of you are aware, Adolf Hitler banned homeschooling in Germany, as a way to erode parental influence in German youth. Most, also know that to this day, Germany aggressively enforces Hitler’s homeschooling ban. What you may not know, is that the United States is now helping Germany enforce Hitler’s law!
After being terrorized by German officials for homeschooling, the Romeike Family fled Germany in 2008 and then sought asylum in the United States. Asylum was rightfully granted in 2010 and the Romeikes have been enjoying their “American” freedoms ever since. However, our current administration and the Department of Homeland Security, immediately sued to have the Romeikes deported, arguing that homeschooling is not a fundamental human right!
If homeschooling is not a fundamental human right, then it follows that denying citizens the “privilege” to homeschool is a matter of preference, not tyranny. The fact that this administration is strongly advocating amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, many of whom fill our prisons, and is at the same time working hard to deport this “legal” immigrant family, seems contradictory. We must ask, “On what charge does the Romeikes deserve prosecution and deportation?” The only thing that sets them apart from other immigrants, is their desire to homeschool. So it appears, this administration is making a specific statement against homeschooling, not against immigration. And if the Department of Homeland Security wins this case, they will have set the precedence to restrict, or even ban, homeschooling in America.
So, please support the Romiekes. If not for their sakes, then for the sake of your family and your homeschool. We need to let our federal government know that, “Yes, homeschooling is a God–given, fundamental right!” Click on the image above, or go the Homeschool Legal Defense Association and sign their petition.
