In looking at your link, I find the following quote from a German govt official to the family most enlightening:My understanding of the Obama administration::
Illegal gays can bring their life partners into the U.S. and get married, become citizens, etc.
Those seeking asylum in the U.S. for religion purposes to home school must be sent back to their country per the DOJ so their home country can punish homeschooling parents.
If the article is correct, it reads like the persecution from the Catholic church before the reformation or the persecution from the King of England which caused the influx of Pilgrims to America to get away from England.
"in order to avoid this in future, the education authority is in conversation with the affected family in order to look for possibilities to BRING THE RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS OF THE FAMILY INTO LINE with the unalterable school attendance requirement.”(emphasis mine)
Given that undeniable evidence of their persecution on religious grounds, asylum should have been automatic, as it was in the judges ruling referenced below - but not to the Obama administration, apparently. They would rather stand with Hitler.
"Unfortunately for the Romeikes, homeschooling has been illegal in Germany since it was outlawed by Adolf Hitler in 1938. According to the German Supreme Court, the purpose of the homeschooling ban is to,“counteract the development of religious and philosophically motivated parallel societies.”
"On one occasion, their children were dragged away and taken to school in police vans."
'Federal immigration judge Lawrence Burnam ... ruled that they had a reasonable fear of persecution for their beliefs if they returned to their homeland. He called the German policy “utterly repellent to everything we believe as Americans.”'
"However, it seems the Obama administration doesn’t concur. In 2012, the Board of Immigration Appeals tossed Judge Burnam’s ruling, forcing the family to head back to court, where Attorney General Eric Holder sought to revoke their asylum and force them to return to Germany."

Force their return to Germany, where they will face fines and the possible/probable removal of the children from their home because the parents dare to not want their children to be indoctrinated by the State in a manner inconsistent with their religious beliefs. Yep, that's a good Leftist position.
