Foreign Homeschooling Families May Get Asylum in America

It is rare that I get a chance to report something positive in the news today. It is also rare to hear of this Federal Government actually making decisions that make some sense, it is It is even stranger to find that they are possibly going to be giving refuge for those who are persecuted for their educational preferences instead of illegally entering the country.
This will hopefully soon be a law.
A House panel has approved a long time coming bill that—among other asylum and immigration concerns—would grant foreign homeschooling family’s asylum in the U.S. if they face persecution in their native country for opting to teach their children at home.
Until now there was the probability that families who came to the U.S. to escape persecution would be deported. If these families were leaving a country that made homeschooling illegal, they would have no grounds for staying in America. That now might change.
Christian News further reports:
HR 1153, approved 17-13 in the House Judiciary Committee, was inspired in part by the story of Ewe and Hannelore Romeike, that I wrote about on August 31, 2013 who were under threat of deportation by American officials after they fled their homeland of Germany where homeschooling is illegal.
So, while our president seeks to make the illegal actions of people, seeking only economic advantage, into legal citizens, the House may actually do something to improve liberty. We might be a country flocked to by those seeking refuge; people who believe that it is their duty to teach their children. Something lacking in our own society.
Many fail to see the indoctrination that occurs in our public schools. They do not see that the teaching of any subject with the absence of God is to teach there is no God. If the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord, one must first be taught the fear of the Lord before they can truly understand any subject rightly. And that there is no such thing allowed by Christ as a neutral or moderate position. For this reason in other words there are absolutes, many have wrongly interpreted the facts of science and ignore the facts of history.
The people like the Romeikes may now have a chance to live here and raise their children according to their convictions. Their fight has not been widely publicized.
“The Romeikes had been battling the matter in the courts for several years while continuing to raise their six children in rural Tennessee. The Romeike family fled to the United States in 2008 after German authorities demanded that they stop homeschooling in violation of national law.”
If this bill passes the House and Senate, there will still be the obstacle of Obama, but there might be the possibility of a friendlier administration by the time the bill makes it to that desk. We can only pray.
