Peruvian officials offer Md. family help
Peruvian officials in the United States want to help the family of the second-grader who told first lady Michelle Obama that her mother "doesn't have papers," ABC 7 reports.
Last week Obama visited News Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring to promote healthy eating. The girl told the first lady, as TV cameras rolled, that her mother "doesn't have any papers."
Consul General Cesar Jordan said Peruvian officials learned of the family's nationality after media in Peru ran interviews with the girl's grandfather.
He said he had reached out to immigrant advocacy groups in an effort to find the family, but they have yet to contact the consulate.
