I bet if they were Mexican, or African/Middle Eastern Obama and Holder wouldn't be trying to send them back.

Homeschool family's fate up for discussion by Supremes

A conference is scheduled among U.S. Supreme Court justices on Feb. 21 where the fate of a German family now living in America but facing government persecution if they return to Germany will be discussed.

Thatís according to a report from the Home School Legal Defense Association, which has been working on the case involving the Romeikes, Uwe, Hannelore and their children, for several years.

As homeschooling parents, they faced government persecution in the form of fines, jail time and loss of their own children in Germany, based on a Hitler-era law that still is enforced by SWAT teams with battering rams and weapons.

They sought, and obtained, asylum in the United States because of that persecution, but the Obama administration, unhappy with the result, appealed and has forced the issue up to the high court.

The HSLDA is reporting that the case is expected to be discussed at a Feb. 21 conference among justices, where they discuss what cases to review. The result could be announced as early as Feb. 24, when a series of orders is expected to be released.
