A family of modern-day Pilgrims needs your urgent assistance. You may have heard of the Romeike family; Uwe and Hannelore Romeike were persecuted for homeschooling in Germany -- where for homeschooling their kids, they faced prison, fines, and loss of parental rights in their home country.
A few years ago, they fled to the United States and received asylum from an immigration judge, only to have the Board of Immigration Appeals overturn the judge’s ruling and order them deported. The Home School Legal Defense Association is appealing their case to the 6th Circuit right now.
The Home School Legal Defense Association is working to build a groundswell of support for the Romeikes, and we urge you to help these modern day Pilgrims, fleeing persecution for freedom in America.
The Home School Legal Defense Association has put-up a petition on the White House web page.
We at CHQ urge you to help them get the word out for signatures on the petition (they need 100,000 signatures in 30 days in order to receive a response), and also to help get the word out in any other way you can think of – tweets, Facebook, blog posts for example – that the Romeike family needs help NOW.
