WASHINGTON A German home-schooling family facing deportation following the Supreme Courts refusal to hear their appeal is being allowed to stay in the U.S.
The Department of Homeland Security has granted the family indefinite deferred status, their attorney confirmed to Fox News.
That means the Romeike family, who claim the German government is persecuting them because they want to raise their children in accordance with their Christian beliefs, can stay in the United States without the threat of being forced return to their home country, the familys legal team told Fox News.
The family moved to Morristown, Tenn., in 2008 after facing fines and threats for refusing to send their kids to a state-approved school in Germany, which is required by law in that country. If the Romeikes had stayed in Germany, they risked losing custody of their children.
Initially, the family was granted asylum in 2010 based on religious freedom grounds, but the Obama administration decided to appeal that decision, and won. The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear the family's appeal.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I bet Obama and Holder are ticked.
I bet Obama and Holder are ticked.
WOW! What a pleasant surprise.
Which is why my suspicions are high.
The DHS is defying Obama here?
Obama/Holder appealed the original order AND WON. Now DHS says it's OK?
Sorry, folks, my cynicism is showing...
Somehow Barry will claim this as one job created and/or saved.
For how long?
Get back in step with The Regime, DHS.
Obama doesn’t want to look bad in an election year.
DHS dosn’t pee without orders from the resident.
They have their legal precedent and can play with it as they wish.
DHS Secretary confused. little islamist confused. Joint confusion inadvertently initiates indefinite deferred status automatically on German Christian family. DHS SEC and soebarkah get angry which increases confusion levels. Putin takes Crimea.
Yup.... These people are mere pawns in some sick twisted game the administration is playing.....
I find it very hard to believe DHS defied the administration.....
The regime frowns upon independent thought...
Something else is going on here...
Seems like DHS is looking “good,” doesn’t it.
Praise THE LORD for His miracle of making things come about to enable this family to stay here!
Yay! Willkommen in unserem Haus! (Welcome to our home!). This kind of immigrant is what we need MORE of.
The Emperor shows his power by being merciful.
DHS = Department of Homeschooling?
Believe me, I'm as glad as anyone this family can stay. We need MORE of their type. I just hate such non-informational stories.
Maybe the ‘Rats did the political calculus and saw something they thought was used better as a sop to the right than to the left.
I agree. It seems to me they are giving them a pass to bolster giving illegals passes as well.
Hafta agree with your cynicism. Something smells here. That decision could be reversed tonight, doors broken down and quietly hauled off to the airport.
Good for them....but not so good for the rest of us. BO and his minions continue to attack our Constitutional rights.
Now is zero going to ignore the court again and still have them deported?
Election year...It cost the administration nothing to do this, but the bad press had they been deported could have hurt the Democrats. DHS capitulated because it was politically expedient to do so.
Thanks be to God. I’m sure there has been a LOT of praying going on for this dear family.
Obama wanted to deport this family, who had fled Germany because the German government wanted to put the parents in jail for violating Hitler's ban on homeschooling.
In Germany in 1938, Adolf Hitler outlawed homeschooling. He said Give me a child when hes seven and hes mine forever. Source: http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/139
