Romeike family wins deportation case in Christian homeschooling battle

The Home School Legal Defense Association announced today that the Romeikes had been granted “indefinite deferred status,” meaning that they can stay in the country permanently.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike brought their family to the US from Germany, where homeschooling is illegal.

The Obama administration responded to their efforts last February when the DOJ stated that “There is no fundamental liberty to homeschool. So long as a government bans homeschooling broadly and equally, there is no violation of your rights.”

In October the battle was set to go the Supreme Court, but the news from Homeland Security ends the deportation efforts.

Today, a Supervisor with the Department of Homeland Security called a member of our legal team to inform us that the Romeike family has been granted “indefinite deferred status”. This means that the Romeikes can stay in the United States permanently (unless they are convicted of a crime, etc.)

This is an incredible victory that can only be credited to our Almighty God.

We also want to thank those of who spoke up on this issue–including that long ago White House petition. We believe that the public outcry made this possible while God delivered the victory.

This is an amazing turnaround in 24 hours. Praise the Lord.

Proverbs 21: 1 “The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord, He guides it wherever He pleases.”
