Do you recall the Romeike family? They were a family of Christian homeschoolers that fled Germany because the government was going to permanently remove the children from their parents because the parents insisted on homeschooling their kids. Mom and dad didn’t want their kids educated in the liberal government run schools and indoctrinated with anti-Christian teachings.
They applied for asylum in the United States because of the persecution they were receiving from the German government, but then the Obama administration changed their mind and Eric Holder ordered the family to be deported back to Germany. The family obtained legal help from the Home School Legal Defense Association to fight the deportation knowing that they would be arrested and their children taken away from them if they were sent back to Germany.
Every court that heard the case upheld Holder’s deportation order. HSLDA petitioned the US Supreme Court to hear the case but in early March of 2014, they refused. All hope seemed lost and the family feared what was about to happen, when God answered their prayers and the prayers of many when the Department of Homeland Security contacted HSLDA that the Romeike family had been granted indefinite deferred action status meaning they could remain the US indefinitely.
Yet, when millions of other aliens enter the US illegally, the same Obama administration opens their arms and welcomes them into our country and then throws tons of benefits at their feet to make them feel good.
Millions of these illegals have been told, before they ever arrive in the US, to tell authorities that they are seeking asylum because of unsafe conditions and persecution in their home countries. The nearly 100,000 illegal minors that flooded into America last year all made the same claim.
Instead of spending thousands of taxpayer dollars to send them back like they tried to do with the Romeike family, the Obama administration rolled out the welcome wagon for them.
Now, the White House is going one step further by making a new policy which would allow illegal moms and their kids to be freed from federal detention centers back into the street of America. All the illegal moms have to say is that they fear returning to their home countries for fear of being persecuted. Then they can post a small bond and promise to show up for their court hearing and walk out the doors of the detention center.
Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security issued a statement, saying:
“I have reached the conclusion that we must make substantial changes in our detention practices with respect to families with children. In short, once a family has established eligibility for asylum or other relief under our laws, long-term detention is an inefficient use of our resources and should be discontinued.”
What makes them believe that people who broke federal law when they entered our country will keep their word and show up in court? Most of them have spent their time in the US avoiding the government and law enforcement.
Once again we see the unethical and un-American hypocrisy of the Obama administration that goes out of its way to persecute legal immigrants like the Romeike family because they are conservative Christians and then open the doors for millions of illegals who broke federal law.
There is only one reason to explain Obama’s hypocrisy – VOTES! If the Romeikes become naturalized American citizens, chances are they will vote Republican because of their conservative Christian values. On the converse, the millions of illegals who have no problem violating federal laws will also have no problem illegally registering to vote and casting illegal votes. I firmly believe that is the one and only motive behind Obama’s illegal actions.
