Appeals Court Hears German Home Schoolers Case

Ad Feedback

A court in Cincinnati is weighing whether a Christian home-school family from Germany should be granted asylum.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike fled to the United States from Germany in 2008 so they could continue homeschooling their six children. The family has been living in Tennessee.

The family is petitioning the 6th Circuit Court of Appeal for permanent refuge, arguing that Germany's homeschool ban amounts to religious persecution.

An appeals board overturned a federal immigration court decision that had granted the family asylum back in 2010.

The U.S. Justice Department is trying to have the family deported on the grounds that homeschooling is not a fundamental right.
