German home-school family will not be deported from US


A family who left Germany so they could home-school their children in the US will not be deported despite being denied asylum, officials say.
 US immigration officials confirmed the Romeike family have been granted “prosecutorial discretion”.
 In Germany, parents who refuse to send their children to state-approved schools face fines, imprisonment and the removal of the children.
 The family sought asylum in the US, saying they feared persecution at home.
