There was a longer article about this in our local newspaper not long ago. It seems the parents were of the hippie era and the travelled around the US and lived in their car much of the time. I think it said the first daughter was actually born in the back of their station wagon or van. They eventually settled in this little town in KY but didn't have a lot to do with the outside world. The father did work someplace there locally I believe but they didn't send the girls to school. I guess they were supposed to be home schooling them. It is a all very odd, but I bet it happens more than people realize.

It's the same reason I objected to the law Arizona passed saying that people could be arrested/detained/deported if they were stopped by police and couldn't prove their citizenship. Regardless of its effect on illegals, the law set up the potential for discrimination against Hispanic citizens who would have to start carrying proof of citizenship just to be safe. While a white or black person, when stopped by police, would have no reasonable expectation that the officer would suspect their legal status.

Being an American citizen entails certain rights, and among them should be not having to meet an onerous standard of proving that you are, in fact, a citizen.
