London, May 21 (ANI): US First Lady, Michelle Obama was put in a spot when a seven-year-old girl asked whether her mother, an illegal immigrant would be deported by the Obama administration.
The incident occurred during a visit by the First Lady to the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School just outside Washington, when the little girl told the her that her mother believed “President Barack Obama was taking everybody away that doesn”t have papers”.
When Michelle Obama responded that “this was something we have to work on”, the girl replied: “But my mum doesn”t have papers.”
Michelle Obama replied: “We have to fix that. And everybody”s got to work together in Congress to make sure that that happens.”
The seemingly innocuous question has cast the spotlight on the Obama administration’s immigration policies
According to The Telegraph, Obama supports the idea of granting the country”s estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, mostly from Mexico, a “path to citizenship”. (ANI)
