The fate of Uwe and Hannelore Romeike – along with their six children – now rests with the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In 2010 an immigration judge granted the family political refuge, but the Dept. of Homeland Security objected and argued they don’t deserve asylum.I am confident that a similar outpouring of sympathy and support -- religious liberty! Parental rights! -- awaits educational refugees from El Salvador and Guatemala where home-schooling is also illegal. Not to mention Albania, Brazil, China and Turkey.
“The Obama administration is basically saying there is no right to home school anywhere,” said Michael Farris, founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association. “It’s an utter repudiation of parental liberty and religious liberty.”
[...]The Justice Dept. is arguing that German law banning home schooling does not violate the family’s human rights.

TBogg informs us of the plight of a family of Freedom Educators who are facing repatriation back to the socialist hellhole of Germany. And just as troths are plighted (every 4 hours, especially in hot weather, or they go off), so must one troth one's plight, and fortunately here is Todd Starnes of Fuchs -- determined that ignorance shall not lack for advocates -- insisting that it is the responsibility of the US to provide a haven for anyone from anywhere in the world where a dictatorial government is thrusting compulsory education down throats.
