Your support can protect this homeschool family from deportation and persecution. Urge the Biden administration to let them stay.
The Romeikes fled to America for homeschool freedom.
Now their freedom is being threatened.
Persecuted. Fined. Children seized. Threatened with imprisonment. Their crime? Homeschooling. The Romeike family fled Germany in 2008 and sought asylum in the US. After more than a decade of making the United States their home, the family was abruptly informed they had four weeks to return to Germany.
