How does USCIS treat homeschooled DREAMers?

US citizens and legal aliens can typically homeschool their children without any questions, but most sane people are very skeptical of the rapidly exploding homeschooling movement.  It is widely known that many parents who assume the role of teachers aren't really educated themselves and rarely educated in the skills needed to teach children.  They often teach their children nonsense and fail to teach them the basics to survive in the real world.  In fact, many parents are committing outright fraud on taxpayers by demanding vouchers that they can blow on vacations and parties. 

It is no surprise then that the USCIS is very skeptical of homeschooling of DREAMers.  First of all, it is very likely that parents who failed to enroll their children in the American school system are using homeschooling as a coverup; it definitely does not help that illegal immigrants have a reputation for fraud and lies.  Secondly, it is likely that the alien might have secured vouchers and that would be a crime as well.  And finally, the USCIS wants to make sure that the DREAMer has basic education equivalent to other residents in the country.  So what the agency does is that as soon as a DREAMer claims in her or his DACA application that s/he has been homeschooled, the information is passed on to the Center Fraud Detection Office (CFDO) to start an investigation.  Only if the CFDO is convinced that there was no fraud and the DREAMer is genuinely being taught at home by capable parents, the application moves forward.  This means that many DACA applications will be delayed due to the lengthy fraud investigation.
