The Romeike family fled to the United States after facing exorbitant fines, the removal of their children, and possible imprisonment for homeschooling. They left family, friends, and their home. In 2010, Judge Lawrence Burman granted their asylum request, saying that Germany’s persecution of homeschooling was “repellant to everything we believe as Americans.”
Their asylum was overturned by the Board of Immigration Appeals, affirmed by the federal courts. They now live under a cloud of uncertainty, yearning to be welcomed as citizens but residing in the U.S. under an order of supervision and indefinite deferred action status.
