Because it isn't persecution. If they don't like the rules of the country they live in, they are free to legally immigrate elsewhere, they don't have to stay. Isn't that what you all claim about all the illegals living here? Doesn't seem to matter to anyone what their home situation is. I have a suspicion that if this family wasn't Christian and lily-white, you all would be clamoring for them to be sent back to where they came from.
