Because of the Obama Regime’s refusal to enforce immigration law (and refusal to allow states to do so), illegal alien welfare colonists continue to flood the country — driving up crime and unemployment rates, sinking hospitals into bankruptcy, making roads unsafe with reckless drunk driving, and tilting the country’s demographics in the direction of the Third World. But there are some foreigners that the Regime will go to great trouble to expel — namely those who would make a positive contribution to America by reinforcing its traditional values. For example, the Romeikes:
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.
They came to the right place. That is the very purpose this civilization was founded by the Pilgrims to serve.
Except now America has been fundamentally transformed — into its opposite:
The Romeikes were initially given asylum, but the Obama administration objected – claiming that German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.
The German laws in question don’t go back as far as America’s tradition of serving as a haven for oppressed Christians. They date back to the Hitler Administration.
The Obama Administration approves of them whole-heartedly:
“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.”
“Pluralistic” is libspeak for “ideologically homogeneous.” Forcing all children into government schools, even against their parents’ religious principles, is intended to ensure that everyone comes out thinking the same way — the way the government wants them to think.
On Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the Romeike’s appeal – paving the way for the Christian family of eight to be deported.
Once back in Germany, the children will be confiscated and placed in government custody.
Obviously, our own days of legal homeschooling are numbered if authoritarian statists continue to hold sway.
When the situation gets bad enough here that the government actually secures the border because people are sneaking out instead of in, let’s hope other countries show escaping Americans more mercy than the Obama Regime has shown the Romeikes.
