US Grants Asylum to Muslim Terrorists but Not to Christian Homeschoolers

About ten years ago, the Tsarnaev family was granted political asylum in the United States. Curiously over the past 10 years family members have made frequent visits back to the country they fled from. A month ago two members of the family set off pressure cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon as an act of Muslim terrorism.

The United States government received warnings about one of the Tsarnaev boys from Russia. The warning included possible links to terrorist activities in the United States, but after a botched FBI investigation nothing was done. The US government even learned that Saudi Arabia had denied a visa to Tamerlan Tsarnaev and yet they still did nothing.

Now the Obama administration is pushing to allow 11 million illegal aliens to remain in the US and eventually be granted citizenship. It seems that our government is bending over backwards to allow Muslims and illegals access to America.

However, in a clear demonstration of President Obama’s war on Christians, his administration has targeted a Christian family and is hell bent on deporting them back to Germany.  The Romeikes family fled Germany in 2008 because the German government outlawed homeschooling and was about to arrest the parents and make the children wards of the government.

In 2010, the Romeikes were granted asylum by immigration judge Lawrence O. Burman.  The family settled in rural Tennessee and began homeschooling their children so they could teach them Christian values along with their lessons.  The family believed that they had found a new home that accepted them and their Christian faith and life was good.

With so much attention being given to the millions of illegal in our nation and how the Democrats were getting thousands of them to vote illegally in elections, you would think the government would be too busy to worry about one family that was causing no problems.  But you would be dead wrong.

In 2012, the Obama administration appealed the immigration asylum status of the German family and requested that the family be deported back to Germany, where they would face charges for their homeschooling.  The administration argued that Romeikes family’s problems in Germany were insufficient to allow for them to be granted asylum in the US.  Yep, that’s right!  Obama’s people claimed that although the parents face possible arrest and the loss of their children if they returned to Germany, this was not sufficient persecution to warrant being granted permission to stay in America.

On April 23, 2013, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments in the case.  This Tuesday, the three judge panel ruled unanimously to revoke the family’s asylum status which would mean their certain deportation back to German persecution.  In their decision, the court refused to acknowledge that the persecution of German homeschoolers for their religious and philosophical differences with the government qualified as actual persecution under the US asylum laws.

Michael Farris, Founder and Chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) said:

“We believe the Sixth Circuit is wrong and we will appeal their decision.  America has room for this family and we will do everything we can to help them.”

“While we will continue to fight in the courts over the issue of whether our law requires the Administration to give this family asylum, there is no doubt of the ability of the Obama Administration to use its discretion to immediately grant this family permanent asylum. We urge the Administration to do so at once.”

“If our Administration is willing to explore a policy of leniency for millions of immigrants, it is simply inexplicable why they cannot find room for one homeschooling family from Germany.”

Mike Donnelly, Director of International Affairs for the HSLDA also commented about the court’s ruling, saying:

“Germany continues to persecute homeschoolers.  The court ignored mountains of evidence that homeschoolers are harshly fined and that custody of their children is gravely threatened—something most people would call persecution. This is what the Romeikes will suffer if they are sent back to Germany.”

Someone please explain to me why our government is spending so much time, money and effort into deporting a family who has done nothing wrong except wanting to give their children a Christian education. At the same time, our government is working hard to allow over 11 million criminals, (every illegal alien is a criminal because they broke federal law when they entered our country illegally), to remain in our nation.  There is no justification for this, but it does clearly demonstrate Obama’s hostility to Christians and to homeschoolers.

I’ll continue to follow the HSLDA appeal and keep you posted, but in the meantime, you need to be contacting your Representatives and Senators and demand that they get involved to keep the Romeikes family here in the US because they will certainly be persecuted and their family destroyed if they are returned to Germany.

    Sick to my stomach over this but then there are so many things to be sick about in this country. At least half of the country, especially young adults, are fully dumbed down, ignorant of the collapse of the great country that gave them so many wonderful opportunities. We must now draw the line in the sand. Any more ground given and we are no coming back. Any more time given to the enemy only means CWII as the remaining option.

    This family needs to get in touch with Jay Sekulow and the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) and get them in their counsel. They take up many causes to protect Christians and their faith.

    Obama is pulling another one of his Tyranny tricks. He thinks it is great to allow 11+ million illegals to stay here and the majority if not all of them will go on welfare. This Christian family was given asylum to this country by a federal judge and the family appears to be self-supporting, so what is the problem is them staying in this country? Unless Obama doesn’t like the fact that they are CHRISTIANS. The media needs to ask him that question. Obama knows if this family is deported back to Germany that the German Government will take the kids from their parents and no doubt put the parents in prison. Obama already has the blood of the four Americans killed in Benghazi on his hands, plus the two American agents killed with the Fast & Furious weapons he authorized to be given to the Cartel along with many innocent Mexicans. I wonder how many more he needs.

  • catman

    What this German family should have done is to go to Mexico, cross over into the U.S. illegally and they would have been welcome to stay then. Then again, they are Christians and obumass is a Muslim. So, maybe the cross border idea isn’t so good after all. Only a thought !!!!

    A Jihadist terrorist has more value to Baracko Clause than a Christian Homeschooler. The homeschooler is dangerous and the terrorist is a asset and friend, besides the Homeschoolers may not teach his kids to be Homosexuals.

    Sadly, “We the Sheeple” have been so overcome with the dreaded “Ostrich Disease” that we failed to see what has been coming for decades and it has gotten “almost” too late to correct it!! THIS is our own fault because we blatantly refused to those who were crying out, in the dark … trying to warn us, because it was so much simpler to accept it as “A Conspiracy Theory” and sit back down in front of the TV. The Laws and Principles in the Bible apply whether one is a Christian or not!! Look at the Bible and then look at “The Other Side” and you will see how they are following this “Outline”! As one great example: “Bring up a child in the way that he should walk and when he gets old, he will not depart from it”. NOW! Hitler and Stalin both said(not exact quote): “IF I could conquer the minds of one generation of America’s youth, I could overthrow America without firing a shot”!! NOW!! Look we are today!! Whose fault is it that WE could learn nothing from the 20th Century History of Socialist China, Germany, Russia and other smaller countries?? What happened there, is happening here right now … the war is only within our borders, so far!

    Obama is the anti-christ (the muslims call him the 12th imam). I don’t know how anyone coulf not see this. He is exactly what he was descrived to be. Hard to imagine Satan is just an empty suit controlled by G.Soros and old has been hippie wannabee 60s radicals hellbent on instituting stale communist ideologies that have long since been ptoven absolutely idiotic. To think these fools can’t get over themselves.
    Seriously. A 3 year old could tell them what’s what. So what do they do? They try to get to the kid before they become 3 in a desperate attempt to prove to themselves that somebody will follow them if they can only ‘change their thinking’, before they learn to think for themselves.
    There is no more pitiful human being than an alinsky radical.

  • DenisKhan

    It’s unfair to target Obama just because he granted asylum
    to the Tsarnaev family. Obama is a very humble President who bowed before the Saudi
    monarch. The MB reportedly supported Obama in his reelection.

    God will not be erased. The Lord, Jesus Christ will not be silent. And HIS people will not be silent. Pray for this family. And for the immortal souls of those who persecute them, that they will be saved from evil. This case along with the IRS scandal, Patriot Act, NDAA, and executive drone strikes are all saying clearly, ‘ WE, the government, are in charge. WE, the government, can and will destroy you AT WILL. You should be afraid of US.’ Well guess what? We recognize evil when we see it. We see you. And we know WHAT you are. And we will not be silent. You may be able to destroy us at will, but you cannot have our souls. And you cannot erase God. CS Murphy

  • Keenan Eugene Lee

    The simple reason is that we have a rogue criminal administration. Everything about it is illegal. The whole cabinet and DOJ are abhorrent by the way they run the country. Legislation is against the people and God. Morality is non-existent. Patriotism is mocked and slandered. Christianity is tortured, ridiculed, and slapped. Our entire country is being degraded by muslims, homosexuals, and tyrants bent on the destruction of this once great nation.

    If it were a muslum family chanting death to America he’d be granting them full American citizen-ship. The muslum POS.

    Obama thinks he is king and acting on it. People still can’t enter the White House on tours but he has

    scheduled another musical bash this week.

  • disqus_fB7YN7RJoz

    Perhaps if the attorneys in the defense of the home school family would just politely explain to the Obama administration that this family is self sustaining and tax paying- and that allowing them to stay would allow Obama to continue to fund his social welfare state- I bet they’d be allowed to stay then!

  • Walt Duncan

    This, what some people call an admin, has nothing but hate for the people of this country. They had rather protect people that do, and will, kill our citizens, but forbid parents from teaching their child right from wrong.

  • Cindy Mccoy

    We need to gather together get a petition and send to our senators, impeach or arrest for treason mr. obama. This man is so anti-American it isn’t funny. He is completely backwards. He aids our enemy and then wants to toss out people looking for freedom, who come here with work and pay taxes. On the other hand let in 11 million who pay no taxes and draw off the government at every turn. He makes me sick, I want him out however, impeach or arrest!!!!!!! When are we going to put our foot down and say NO MORE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nancy Evins

    I constantly wonder about our media and the common sense of many Americans. Where has it gone?
    Stories like this and the many reports of the infiltration of those who hate us but who are allowed into our country and given welfare (with many other illegals to come in) are ignored. Those of us who realize this are called racists.
    In some cases, I have learned from personal experience, much of our population is totally ignorant of everything or anything going on in the world. I recently spoke to a young woman, a customer service rep, of Humana who kept mispronouncing my home town, Lebanon. I finally asked her if she had never heard of the country by the same name. She giggled and said no. Yet her vote counts as much as mine…and I’m sure will cancel mine out.
    I have never despaired over the condition of our country as I have the past 4 years. If it walks like a duck, etc. etc. etc.

  • Connie Stanson

    Here is another example of Obama’s Treason. He will let Muslim Brotherhood in the White House and grant Muslim Terrorist Asylum. Now he has sent this Fine up-standing Family back to Germany because they don’t want their Children to be taught the Socialist ways. I really hope Obama goes down for his Treachery. I really do.

  • Louis Grue Jr.

    It’s this kind of actions from this fascist administration that tells all Americans that it is time to rid this nation of the Obama administration as early as possible. It is past time for congress to file for impeachment now before they do any more damage to this great nation. Congress, use all the power you can muster or lose it !

    There is an obvious bias on the part of this administration which can not be characterized as representative of the traditional beliefs of Americans. If the “change” which was referred to in the “hope and change” message of the 2007-8 campaign season is the adoption of a deference to the ideas and beliefs of Islam, if not outrightly favoring them above the historical, traditional tenets and beliefs of the Judeo-Christian religious heritage, there is certainly no explanation based in impartiality or equality before the law which accounts for the disparities in consideration or treatment which is evident in the policies of this administration regarding religious organizations and the requirements which have been placed on them by it. Having a president of mixed-race parentage may represent “fundamental change” coming to America. That, alone, historically is significant, but that, alone, is not as significant as the policies which are a radical departure from the Christian theological and philosophical perspective which was responsible for the founding of the United States and the principal, Ivy League, educational institutions which long ago abandoned it in favor of secular liberalism. The obvious question is, does everyone benefit from the “change” ?
    From the case of the Christian homeschoolers, the answer is obviously, “no.”
