The Biden administration does not attempt to find out who these individuals are or exactly what they might be planning once they are flown or bused directly into the country. This is happening while the southern border is going through chaos and records are being broken every day by illegal immigrants coming into the country. A lot of them say they are looking for refuge, but the truth is that a lot of them are just using that to gain entrance into the country more easily. But a family that came to the U.S. officially to seek refuge is now being told they will have to leave the country, even though they have not broken any laws and have actually done everything that was required of them.
Christian German refugees Uwe and Hannelore Romeike along with their five children live in the United States. In 2008, they left Germany because the government told them they had to stop teaching their kids. With the German government outlawing homeschooling in 2018, the Romeike children were once taken from their parents and placed in public school—a move that would have made the Biden administration as well as Democrats green with envy. Even though they aren’t American citizens, they have lived in Tennessee for around 15 years and have been good neighbors and hard workers. A process called “indefinite deferred action status” has let them stay in the U.S. since 2014.
The Romeikes are now a problem for the Biden government, though. The Romeikes received notification from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) earlier this month that they would have to apply for German passports and be ready for deportation. Kevin Boden is a lawyer defending the Romeikes through the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). He says they were only told to get their papers ready in four weeks so they could be sent back to their home country. He also said:
“They didn’t explain why. They were just told that the orders had changed. We are unaware of the source of the directives; they may have originated at ICE headquarters and were sent to the local office by the deputy field office director or the field office director. The new orders say that they should get their travel papers together and get ready to go. We’re not sure if they came from the Biden administration or someone higher up in the executive branch.”
Democrats in power have not made things easy for the Romeikes in the United States. In 2010, an immigration judge gave the Romeikes refuge. However, the Obama White House appealed the judge’s decision, and in 2012, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) rejected it. A little more trouble has come up for those in the government who want to send the Romeikes back to their home country. Since they moved to the U.S., they’ve had two more children who are now citizens. Some of their grown children are also married to citizens. Don’t Democrats like to scold us for separating families?
