...a Supervisor with the Department of Homeland Security called a member of our legal team to inform us...

While I'm grateful to God for this turn of events, it is staggering that some piddly bureaucrat appears to have this much discretion.

They probably don’t. They were probably told to make the call from higher up I would bet?

So, does this mean that DHS is more powerful than the Supreme Court?

That is 2 branches of Govt. to be ignored by this administration.

I remember thinking that the US should have just granted Elian Gonzales citizenship here, and then work with the World Court to figure out how it should be handled.

I think the Romeike family should consider that route as well, because they can easily be betrayed.

The fact that Tennesseans were up in arms over this, vowing civil disobedience, seems to be overlooked on this thread as a reason why this ruling against the Romeike family has been overturned. Hats off to the Tennesseans who rallied for these foks!

I was going to make this point. It's not coincidence that this deferral occurred after there was the threat of strong ground-level push-back.

Conservatives take note.

something to keep in mind as everyone (rightly) celebrates:

“Deferred Status” is the same thing being done with the “Dreamers” under DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) ... which a lot of people here on FR and elsewhere opposed as backdoor amnesty.

So while this is a very good thing on the micro level, its a brilliant move by the Obama Admin because on the macro level we’re going to see it thrown in our faces for continued opposition to the other “deferred” action/prosecution policies Obama is famous for.

Red staters should not let this die, legs need to be put on this. The very fact that Holder attempted to do this to this family is political dynamite. Holder must have known this causing him to back off.

Why was this taken out of news and breaking news? Many of us on FR have been following this case regarding fundamental liberties....and this is totally new information and completely unexpected....this is the very definition of Breaking News, is it not?!

They could have granted these poor folks asylum long ago, in fact the courts did just that. The administration went out of their way to get their asylum overturned and put them through hell for three years, taking their attempts to deport them all the way to the supreme court. These people lose at the supreme court and then the next day the administration grants them deferred action so they can help them put a conservative face on the administrative abuse of power they’re using to informally implement immigration reform.

I’m happy for the family, but don’t freepers understand when they’re being played?

Re: my comment that this is political dynamite and legs need to be put on this. Think about it, folks, Holder and Obama allowing illegals to flood into the country vs this one Christian family from Germany. Conservative politicos should jump on this big time.

This is good news. Unfortunately the precedent has been established that religious persecution by a nation’s education system is no grounds for political asylum. No other families need apply.

Bingo!

The timing shows that this was exactly what the White House wanted: a legal precedent that homeschooling is not an automatic right to enter the U.S., without the publicity of deporting a sympathetic family. So they had this paperwork all ready to go, and filed it the day after SCOTUS declined the case.

I have no issue with that as one of several different legitimate arguments that can be made.

I was speaking on it as matter of political mechanics. We can now expect that our approval and celebration of this deferred action will be used to attack any future opposition by us to deferred action(s) on other matters.

“Obummer did not want us using this as a stick to beat Democrats with during the upcoming elections.”

The day after our mid-term elections are over a federal government SWAT team will breakdown the door of this family’s home, flash bang them, shoot their dog and put them forcibly on the first plane back to Germany.

Color me cynical.

Glenn Beck reported on his radio show Tuesday morning that the family was being deported back to Germany, with Holder stating that the family didn’t meet the criteria of political refugees.

This reversal is excellent news!

The “stick” is still good and should be used to the MAX. The simple fack that so much resource was burned by both sides in coming to the obvious conclusion is reason enough to slamthekrap out of any democrat who had a chance to do anything to streamline the process. This is the kind of dumbass gummint performance that must be screamed about.
