An Example of How Immigrants Are Treated In the USA Today


In 2010 Uwe Romeike and his wife Hannelore were granted political asylum in the USA. They came here in order to homeschool their children. They were not free to do so in their home country of Germany.Uwe Romeike and his wife Hannelore work with their children at home in Morristown, Tenn., where they moved from Germany, where school attendance is compulsory and homeschooling forbidden.

Now, the Department of Homeland Security, has decided the family should be deported and returned to Germany. In a time when, under the Obama administration, illegal immigrants are being allowed to stay in the USA and many who have criminal convictions are being released from prison “due to sequestration”, this family, who have followed the rules, are having to fight in court to attempt to stay.

If you would like to help this family, perhaps the best way would be to pray for them. The case is going to be heard by the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on April 23rd. Pray that the judge will rule in favor of these immigrants. Also, perhaps we should help get the message out to others that the Romeike family needs the same support as those who are in the country illegally. If criminals are being set free to walk our streets shouldn’t this law-abiding family be allowed to live among us?

The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:34

…and that they may teach their children.’ Deuteronomy 4:10

  1. lue, I am disappointed that you did not call for comprehensive immigration reform, instead of pointing a finger at government. If it were left up to democrats, the Romeike family would be O.K.

      Noel, I know you really believe that, but I do not think politicians mean what they say. Democrats had a majority in both houses and in the executive branch in 2008 and 2009 and they didn’t touch immigration. The reason for that is because it is such an overwhelming task and they were afraid of political fallout. The Romeike family have asked for amnesty according to the law of the land. Most immigrants have broken the law. Officials have looked the other way while people broke the law for so long that it is completely out-of-hand. I think something needs to be done, but I don’t think anyone knows what to do about those who came illegally. I know many are taking advantage of entitlement programs as I write this and I know that somehow this has to be dealt with by elected officials because our country is going to be bankrupt in a few more decades. As long as fingers are pointed and politicians use them for pawns in their re-election bids nothing meaningful will be done. I wish both parties would sit down and handle this like statesmen, but in the meantime, I think this family should be allowed to stay.
