German couple Uwe and Hannelore Romeike moved to America 15 years ago so they could homeschool their children, but are now facing deportation.  Uwe explained, “They did not tell us anything. We don’t really know why [this is happening]. We wonder ourselves because we can’t understand.” They fled Germany after being fined for homeschooling, claiming asylum from persecution. Kevin Boden, an attorney for the family said, “I can tell you today, I talked to families today that have fear in Germany and the fight there, the persecution there, is very real today as it was 15 years ago.”  He added, “We think this is, in fact, an asylum case.”  Boden asserts that the family can stay in the U.S. legally, just as they have for the past 15 years, and that the Biden administration and federal agencies can make it happen.
