A recent letter signed by 27 members of Congress and sent to Eric Holder says: “The Romeikes fled to our country, seeking relief from high fines, removal of their children by armed police officers, and threats of prison and termination of their parental rights. If forced to return to Germany, they will certainly face renewed persecution…As Americans, we have an obligation to stand with those who seek freedom. The Romeike family should find a welcoming home in the United States.”
It was the Obama administration, led by Eric Holder that said there is no fundamental right to home school for parents. We respectfully disagree and believe that the education of children is one of the most basic parental rights, and religious rights of every American. The alternative, if there is no fundamental right to home school, is that it is the sole responsibility of the government to educate children. This is patently false. We hope more members of Congress will sign this letter and that the Obama administration will rethink their position and affirm the religious rights of every parent to educate their children in a manner consistent with their religious beliefs.
