In The End Just Another Bogus Asylum Claim

The Romeikes are in the news again.  They lost their appeal of their denial of an asylum claim in a decision from the Supreme Court but were suddenly given the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.

DHS Tells Romeike Family “You Can Stay”
The Department of Homeland Security verbally informed Home School Legal Defense Association that the Romeike family is being granted indefinite deferred action status. The Department told HSLDA that this meant the order of removal would not be acted on and that the Romeikes could stay.
HSLDA Chairman Michael Farris was thrilled.
“This is an incredible victory that I can only credit to Almighty God. I also want to thank those who spoke up on this issue—including that long ago White House petition. We believe that the public outcry made a huge impact. What an amazing turnaround—in just 24 hours,” he said. 

What made the Romeike case interesting was that the family were normal white Europeans who applied for asylum based on a claim of oppression based on their Christianity.  Not quite true, it was based on their belief that their particular Protestant sect requires home schooling.  Well, some Protestant sects require snake handling, polygamypacifism, wife swapping (not that this justified the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Really Big Fires to kill the Branch Davidians) or other heterodox beliefs about our Lord and Savior.  Color me unimpressed.  I could not find polygamy, snake handling, pacifism, wife swapping, or other such nonsense in the Nicene Creed or the the Catechism of the Catholic Church base on the Holy Scriptures, the Church Fathers, and Ecumenical Councils.  Everyone has an opinion on Christianity, but the opinions of most count for nothing.  Give me Aquinas and Augustine over David Koresh and John Calvin.  And the Remeikes were in a long line of Protestant peculiar obsessions with minor passages from Scripture.  And they certainly weren't going to jail for their faith, but on one manner of expressing that faith, homeschooling.  Something, by the way, they could have avoided by selecting a more rigorous school to attend.  

In Germany, public education is not predominately secular, as both Protestant and Catholic education is available to parents.  The Romeikes could have found a school with more religious emphasis, or more importantly, left Germany for a more accommodating nation in the European Union. Homeschooling is not illegal in most EU states and as German citizens, the Romeikes had the right to live in any EU member state.  There was no need for them to flee to the United States. And, more importantly, there was no prohibition in Germany for the families exotic Protestant sect.  They could teach their children all they want after the short German school day that starts at 8 am and ends at 1 pm.  That leaves the Romeike vater und mutter plenty of time to educate their children in their particular theology.

It was however another case of abuse of the asylum process this blog has documented as it degenerated into an alternate or parallel immigration system for those without a way to immigrate legally but use the asylum system to immigrate with bogus claims of oppression from homosexuals, gangbangers, crime victims, the just plain crazy, and fake domestic violence victims.

Not to say that the Romeikes did not have an issue, but that issue was the anti-white nature of our immigration system and hatred of whites and Christians by the Regime.  However, the underlying basis of their claim is without merit.  The Romeikes can return to Europe safely, establish residency in Italy, Latvia, the Czech Republic or any one of a dozen or so other nations.  More power to them. But you don't have a colorable asylum claim.  White South Africans on the other hand do.  They are actually fleeing real oppression by a violent and racist dictatorship where whites are murdered because of their race by the hundreds every week.

Of more concern as exemplified by the Romeikes is that they are winners of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.  The code words for the amnesty in this case is indefinite deferred action status.
The Department of Homeland Security verbally informed Home School Legal Defense Association that the Romeike family is being granted indefinite deferred action status. The Department told HSLDA that this meant the order of removal would not be acted on and that the Romeikes could stay.

Deferred action and its other permutations such as, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA, the Dream Act Administrative Amnesty), prosecutorial discretion, and deferred enforced departure, are illegal acts by the Regime designed to dress up lawlessness with a vocabulary of legality.  This appears to be a jujitsu move by the Regime, using amnesty to appeal the historic American nation. One hopes that the Evangelical Right does not fall for it.
