The Romeike Family

Sign the Romeike petition!
A few years ago in 2008, the Romeike (pronounced ro-MY-kuh) family moved to the United States from Germany. They had begun homeschooling their eight children in 2006. They faced fierce persecution for this, with fines up to $9,000 and having their children forcibly removed from their home. They fled to America. A judge in their home state, Tennessee ruled that they had a right to stay in America as refugees, seeking asylum.

Then five years later, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (part of the Department of Homeland Security) declared that they didn’t have a right. And issued a deportation decree. If this is not overturned, they will be forced to leave the country and go back to Germany. They will be before the circuit court on April 23rd. We must take action!
