Daughter can't attend Surendra Dangol's funeral??

I just read in the paper that the State Department won't allow the 9 year old daughter of Surendra Dangol to attend her father's funeral becasue they were afraid that if she were allowed to come with her mother the family would try to stay in the U.S. This is an outrage.
I'm not sure what to do about this, but my first thought is to call the State Department. The phone number is 202-647-4000 . I encourage anyone who reads this to make the call and complain that the daughter should be able to attend her father's funeral.
If anyone has any other ideas, please reply!

This turnaround was due to Rep. Capuano's intervention. I have written to thank him and encourage others to do the same. Also wrote to Maria Cramer thanking her for breaking the story in the Globe. Small consolation but so important for the family.

I just heard on the news the State Department will be allowing her to attend the funeral.
