Obama administration wants to deport German homeschoolers

In 2010 a German family was granted Asylum in the US because they were not allowed to homeschool their children in Germany. Now the Obama administration wants to deport them. Get ready, US! If homeschooling isn't a right anymore, how long will it take until everyone in the US has to go through 12 years of brainwashing?

Other German parents that homeschool gave statements about what happened when they didn't send their children to the public school. One couple had their child taken away for six months and they were not allowed to see each other. Another had their child sent to a mental clinic because they said she had "school phobia", a mental illness.

The parents in this story had the police come to their home and forceably take their children to school. Mom went and got them at lunch time. The next time the police came, the neighborhood was alerted. They blocked the road and turned the police away.

The appellate court reversed the judge that granted asylum saying that the family wasn't here because of religious persecution. The Germans do the same thing this country does when we disobey. The family faced extraordinary high fines, failure to pay results in property seizure, children removed, and constant harassment.

Now that they are technically illegal aliens, can't they stay like all the others.

Did anyone bother to read

Did anyone bother to read why? It has nothing to do with homeschooling.

From my understanding. This case is about a German family that left Germany because they had been fined for home schooling their children. They sought asylum in the US. They were denied and appealed. They argued that they should not be sent back to Germany because of religious freedom. The US Government argues that they do not qualify for asylum.

This has to do with whether or not the GERMAN family qualifies for asylum here in the US. Nothing to do with US homeschooling.

Now, with respect to the following: "There are two major portions of constitutional rights of citizens—fundamental liberties and equal protection. The U.S. Attorney General has said this about homeschooling. There is no fundamental liberty to homeschool. So long as a government bans homeschooling broadly and equally, there is no violation of your rights."

That may be another story, but I would like some clarification on that statement. Most of these articles are pro-home-school.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Look at the argument though

Look at the argument though Brian, "There is no fundamental liberty to homeschool." If they are using this argument to justify sending this family back to Germany they could just as easily use it to place a ban on homeschooling here in the US. Frankly, I think it's terrifying that they are even making this claim at all, that parents do not have the fundamental liberty to teach their own children at home. Just let that sink in for a second. Think of the implications of that statement.

Just look at the steps they went through to demolish due process in America. It started out with foreign Muslims, but nobody cared because they are all "savages" or "terrorists". Little by little the definitions have become more broad and lines have been blurred to the point where we now have to worry about assassination of American citizens by drone on US soil.

I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
Spiral out.

Show me somewhere, anywhere,

Show me somewhere, anywhere, where the Government is trying to ban homeschooling. The statement from Eric Holder is disturbing, but it needs to be verified and in what context it was made, if made at all. Still, I would need to see if there was an effort from any Government body to ban homeschooling. If not, there this is nothing but hyperbole.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

There is no fundamental Constitutional clause

for nationally programmed education, so as long homeschoolers reject this broadly and equally, there is no violation of the law. lol

Marbury vs. Madison I think it was.

great comment from the

great comment from the aljazeera site:
"They should move to Mexico and illegally cross the border into the US. Problem solved."

Check this out

This is a great article from HSLDA on the same story which shows how the views held by the administration on the right to home school may very well be an indication of what home schooling parents in the US may face in the near future.

This statement in the aljazeera article gave me chills:
"But in 1938, school attendance laws were bolstered to facilitate the spread of Nazi ideology"

And just look at all the comments from the brainwashed collectivists on that story!
