Religion in America is free to practice until it infringes on the rights of someone else.
That is a really dumb argument you got there.
Why don't you research before spouting nonsense...

I homeschooled my oldest for 6 months - not because I had a problem with public school - but because they could only help him to a certain extent with his developmental issues.
Not saying that they didn't help out alot - but he had other problems that needed attention and schools don't and can't provide that - he was suffering.
Homeschooling him was difficult but it helped get him back on track with those other issues.

I homeschool my kids, so obviously I don't think it should be illegal. I would be fine with having more oversight, as it is each state decides how much oversight and that ranges from none to super-intense. I could see, for example, requiring homeschooled kids to take a national exam once a year at an approved testing center. There's a lot of heated debate in the homeschool forums I frequent on this issue, most lobby for less or no oversight, but I've heard too many stories of kids who are supposedly "homeschooled" but in fact are just neglected.
But I am not really on board with granting asylum in this specific case. I think that's a different issue altogether.
