I got into a FB debate about this. A friend linked to this story that claims that Obama is trying to help persecute this family just because they are Christian. I pointed out that this was a SCOTUS decision and Obama has no influence over SCOTUS. We went back and forth about the definition of “persecution” (she is the type that feels like Christians are being persecuted disproportionately, especially in the US.) and whether or not sending their kids to public schools prevented them from exercising their religious freedom.
Today she linked to this story about DHS allowing them to stay. I started to point out to her that Obama has way more control over DHS than he does SCOTUS, but this article claims
I’m mainly asking about how much involvement Obama and/or his administration had in any part of this.
However, I don’t want to try to prohibit debate about the SCOTUS decision or any other part of this story, so I’m putting it in GD, where it probably would have ended up anyway.
Sorry if this is a dupe thread: I did a search for Romeike, thinking any discussion of this would have their name in it.
