What is your opinion on the family that immigrated here from Germany so they could homeschool? I think they should stay, because unlike some people who the government has allowed to stay, the members of this family areactually upstanding people, and they just want to give their children a good future. Whatbare your opinions?
I think it's yet another example of how messed up our immigration system is. I don't agree with their 'public schooling is persecution' argument, but I do agree they should be allowed to stay here anyway. If they aren't terrorists or criminals by all means let them in. That's what America is about.
I'm confused, if the Romeikes have pass ports and visas, what's the problem?
They don't have visas. They just flew over here and applied for asylum- which is where you ask to be allowed to stay without a visa because you believe you may be persecuted if you return to your home country. They claim that since the German goverment will not allow them to homeschool their children (they are evangelicals who don't agree with the school cirriculum), they face religious persecution in Germany. A judge decided not to grant them asylum on that basis, meaning they must return there.
Had they applied for a VISa, then duh, let them stay. But since the applied for Asylum, knowing full well that they could be denied, unfortunately I must side with the government on this one. Now if they file for a VISA, sure.
