ICE Won't Deport German Home Schooling Family; 'Deferred Action' Status Granted

"A German family that was threatened with deportation after losing an appeal for asylum in the U.S. because they wanted to home school their children has been granted permission to stay in the country indefinitely, a family attorney said.  Michael Donnelly of the Home School Legal Defense Association told ABC News his office received a call from the Department of Homeland Security informing him that Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their seven children will not be deported.  The news came just 24 hours after the Supreme Court said it would not hear the family's asylum appeal, raising fears the Romeikes could be sent back to Germany, the country they had fled from in order to be able to home school their children. ... The family has had its "deferred action," status extended indefinitely, which means as long as the Romeikes stay out of trouble and stay in contact with the Department of Homeland Security, they won't be deported, Donnelly said." - ABC News, Mar. 5, 2014.
