Cased Closed: German Homeschooling Family Denied Asylum

I was deeply disappointed to hear that the German family seeking an asylum in America in order to homeschool their children were denied their final appeal at the Supreme Court. Homeschooling is illegal in Germany and as a matter of conscience, the family came to America in order to raise their children as they see fit. Strangely, though, the Obama administration has worked overtime to deny them their asylum. I am not sure what is in it for them or how America is hurt by this family.

Here's the story and the panel discussion to follow from Special Report with Bret Baier.

The videos above make a number of great points. Politically speaking, we will have to wait and see if the Obama administration will send the family back to Germany. It is interesting that the Obama administration favors amnesty for illegal immigrants and yet has done its best to deny this family a home in America.

Pray for this family. I believe that education is a decision that parents must make on behalf of their children. If they choose to enroll their children in public or private school, that's their business. The same is true for those who choose to homeschool their children.

Pray for this family.
