This surprises me.

Is there some hope for religious liberty in this once great country of ours?
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

They immigrated here legally in 2007. Their youngest child is an American citizen.  I don't see on what grounds they were to be deported.

This administration doesn't need grounds since it doesn't believe in the law except for what they make de jour.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Crudely speaking it's the Administration letting SoCons slip a hand up a skirt.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

BTW while SCOTUS refused to take on this case, they ARE taking the case of a man who stabbed and slashed his wife to death and is serving a life sentence in her murder - the reason HIS case is so important?  The prison wants him to shave his beard and because he is a  - wait for it now - MUSLIM - he hand wrote a letter to SCOTUS to have his right to kep his beard heard...  and they are going to hear it.

So the SCOTUS wasn't interested in a family who were here legally, broke no laws and want nothing more than to home school their children, but a Muslim murderer who wants to keep his beard -- well......... THAT is important.

What!!!!!

It's a sop to the SoCons to undermine the Right.  See the article about getting men to vote Dem?   First step.

A very odd result.  it suggests that the federal leviathan pursued this case for some ulterior motive - in other words, they didn't really care about whether these folks stayed in the US, they cared about establishing the precedent they now have.

To go far out on a tangent, since forced public education is now not a ground for political asylum, this case could be used as persuasive precedent that forced public education also doesn't infringe on any constitutional rights, and that the old cases holding otherwise should be overruled.

Yes, I believe that your points are correct, regrettably...
