Peruvian child becomes symbol of US undocumented

"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," Michelle Obama replied.

"But my mum doesn't have papers," said Daisy, a US citizen by virtue of her birth.

The colour immediately drained from her mother's face.
