That being said, I can't believe that these governments don't have better uses for their resources. This strikes me as a slightly more heinous crime that jaywalking. Surely our attorney general faces more important issues that would be a better use of tax dollars.
I guess my next question is; where is this family in the process of earning citizenship?
Homeschooling is also not allowed in most of Mexico and Central America. You allow homeschooling as a legit reason for granting asylum, you just opened the door for every Honduran, Guatemalan, and a huge part of the world to automatically qualify for relocating here simply because their home countries mandate public school. That ok with you?
Note that it is not being applied to a particular religion--it applies the same for the whole population.
