US Still Fails to Protect 10 Year old Ariana-Leilani, But Deports Children for Seeking Home Schooling

A German family that fled to the United States in 2008 to home school their children is on the verge of deportation after a Tennessee appeals court denied a request for asylum.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike, devout Christians from the southwest of Germany who now have six children, came to the United States in 2008 after the German government threatened them with legal action for home-schooling their children, which is banned in Germany.

They were initially granted asylum by a US judge who believed Germany had restricted their religious freedom.

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, however, ruled this week in favor of the Obama administration, which challenged the family’s asylum on the grounds that Germany’s ban on home-schooling did not constitute persecution and thus could not be used as a basis for political asylum in the United States.

Meanwhile, thousands worldwide have signed the petition to save German child Ariana-Leilani in Washington DC, USA, for whom the German Government has asked the Obama Administration in the USA to help get her needed medicine and medical attention.  But, so far, the USA has failed to act, and Ariana-Leilani is in dire need of life saving medicine and medical attention.
