romeikes-and-michael-farrisThe Home School Legal Defense Association has asked its supporters for “5 days of prayer” that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of the Romeikes, a German homeschooling family that the Obama administration is attempting to deport. The Supreme Court will meet on Friday and announce its decision on Feb. 24. On Monday, Feb. 17, HSLDA sent a message to its supporters asking them to pray each day this week, Feb. 17-21. “We ask now if you will join us, beginning today, for five days of prayer? Let’s join together and pray that the court will agree to hear HSLDA’s appeal and that God will move in the hearts of the justices in favor of the Romeike family,” the message says. Homeschooling is illegal in Germany. The Romeikes fled to the U.S. in 2008, with the assistance of the HSLDA, after they were threatened with the possibility of losing custody of the children. They were initially granted asylum by a U.S. district court. That decision, though, was appealed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The U.S. Justice Department sided with ICE in that and subsequent cases. More
