Second-Grader Expresses Worry to First Lady About her Mother's Immigration Status

While President Barack Obama held a press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and talked about Arizona's Racial Profiling Law,  First Lady Michele Obama and Mexico’s First Lady Margarita Zavala visited an elementary school in Silver Spring, Maryland.  As the First Lady sat with children, one 2nd grader spoke up.

ABC News’ Karen Travers reports what happened:

The student shyly raised her hand and said, "My mom ... she says that Barack Obama is taking everybody away that doesn't have papers."

Mrs. Obama replied: "Yeah, well that's something that we have to work on, right? To make sure that people can be here with the right kind of papers, right? That's exactly right."

The girl then said quietly, "But my mom doesn't have any ..." and trailed off.

Mrs. Obama replied: "Well, we have to work on that. We have to fix that, and everybody's got to work together in Congress to make sure that happens. That's right."
If Congress and the President didn't already think it necessary to pass immigration reform legislation this year, the video of this 2nd grader should help them see the light.
