Premium Episode 26: What About the Children (Sample)

The Romeikes, a white, evangelical Christian family who fled Germany to the US seeking the religious freedom to homeschool their seven children. Now DHS is deporting them, and conservatives all of a sudden love asylum seekers—at least the right kind.

Next we catch up on what’s happening with Tim Ballard, ousted CEO of Operation Underground Railroad, and the focus of the largely fictional but still runaway summer hit, Sound of Freedom.
