Victory!

The homeschooling community and proponents of school choice all over the world are still rejoicing over the wonderful news that the Romeike family is allowed to stay in the United States.

The DHS Tells Romeike Family “You Can Stay”

Good news! The Department of Homeland Security verbally informed the Home School Legal Defense Association that the Romeike family is being granted indefinite deferred action status. In other words, this means that the order of removal would not be acted on and that the Romeikes can stay.
