Lydia Romeike may be an illegal immigrant. This is her family: https://hslda.org/post/romeike-fact-sheet They are a german family that wants assylum in the US because of homeschooling laws in Germany, but so far it seems it has not been granted.

Ah, but she's the right color (white) and flavor (fundy Christian) of immigrant, so its OK.  Fundy Christian politicians in US LOOOVE to get all worked up about Christians being oppressed.

Here is Lydia's website: https://www.lydiaromeikephotography.com/  

She doesn't mention religion on her website, and she even takes prom photos. She lives in Morristown, so about 75 minutes from the Bates.

And the fathers website: https://uweromeike.webs.com/

On her photography website, it says you can add your pets to any photo session, but the pets must be up to date with their shots.

Chances she thinks humans must be up to date with their shots? Any takers here?

Trace follows a photographer name Lydia Romeike (so do Carlin and Josie).

The nose looks the same. 

ETA- she did Josie's maternity photos.

This appears to be her family. They would be right up the Bates alley of crazy and Lydia would be about 18/19 (which makes me question her "5 years of photograph y experience")

God I love FJ and our investigative skills, that is all.

Lydia's dad's website says he is the pianist at First Baptist Church Morristown (although the website looks pretty old). I don't have the stamina to look at any of the church's livestreams/videos to see if Trace can be spotted (if we assume the Romeike family still goes there). My sleuthing skills are not on par with other Free Jingerites 🤪.

Anyway, gotta say this is a semi-interesting development as I certainly didn't expect a Bates to be possibly romantically linked to a family seeking asylum so they can homeschool their kids....

Oh and no surprise with fundie hypocrites, Lydia's dad has a college degree from a university in Germany. No idea if this family discourages their kids from going to college, but their whole shtick is that public schools in Germany teach witchcraft....excuse me while my eyes roll back into my head.

If Lydia got married to Trace, would that help with her asylum application/residence status? 

Maybe Pa Romeike is trying to get all his kids married off, as an easier route than the asylum. 

EDIT: Their two youngest kids are US Citizens, I suppose that would help as well?

If Lydia is already 23, why should  she still be eligible for asylum because she can't be homeschooled?  She's a grown ass woman, homeschooling is no longer an issue in her life. Get in the citizenship process line with everybody else.

[I bet most of the white fundy Christians who think Lydia deserves citizenship feel the opposite about Hispanic DREAMERs--including the ones who have served in the military]

There are plenty of countries in the EU that allow homeschooling. They would have the free movement right to move to Ireland with no issue and keep homeschooling. Asylum is 100% not necessary even if you go with them on their own argument. 

And yeah, as @HereticHick says, only 4 of the children are minors and two of those were born in the US.

Homeschooling is legal in Denmark, and there is even a German-speaking minority in the southern part, so they could have gone there as well.

I guess we could refer to the two youngest as "anchor babies".  Pa and Ma Romeike just wanted to emigrate to the US and didn't think the rules should apply to white fundy Christians like themselves. F**k these hypocrites and the American fundies who support & encourage them.

That isn't required.  It's about Trace and no one or whoever at the moment.

Late to the party (as usual), but I think it’s kind of funny that this guy is so boring that his first thread has lasted more than two years.

I find all of the Bates sons so dull that I can’t tell any of them apart.

Did anyone catch Trace's insta story the other day eating crepes for breakfast? It was of his breakfast plate, then pans over to the right showing one other person's plate of crepes next to his. There's no one across from him, there doesn't appear to be any plates/dishes/food to his left or to the other person's right....just a cutesy video of two people's cutesy breakfast on insta with a cutesy filter....

Seems like that's a common thing for Bates boys to do when starting a new relationship- teasing the existence of it without actually showing the girl.

I agree. They will probably announce the relationship after Esther and Nathan’s wedding.

So I'm an American but as a teen I was super into the famous European family The Kelly Family (who are virtually unknown here). They had parents with american/irish citizenship, lived often in Germany, but could homeschool by pointing out they were in fact irish and not technically german, and skipping around different countries often. I think this was publicly addressed as being frowned upon but I don't think the government could do anything? There are definitely loopholes out there. 

Also Europeans, be on your guard. In recent years, the people at HSLDA have been establishing European contacts to try to influence laws over there in favor of de-regulated homeschool. 

Back to your regularly scheduled snarking!

      Did whatever I had change my personality at all?  Maybe a good thing if it makes my asshole tolerance even lower than before.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.
