Because of a broad German ban on homeschooling, an evangelical Christian couple, Uwe and Hannelore Romeike, withdrew their children from German public school in 2006 because the school’s values conflicted with their religious values, according to CitizenLink. After facing police visits to force the Romeike children into public school, the family sought asylum in the U.S.
The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) took the Romeikes’ case in 2010, and the Romeikes became the first family to obtain asylum in the U.S. for the protection of homeschooling rights. After homeschooling their children in their Tennessee home for some time, Attorney General Eric Holder appealed the decision to the Board of Immigration, and the U. S. government led by Eric Holder now wants to send the family back to Germany where they will face more persecution for wanting to teach their children at home.
