On Wednesday the Associated Press released a statement that President Trump will be “signing something” in regards to the immigration issue with families that are being separated and children being held in warehouses.
A wide range of celebrities are speaking out against the issue saying that America needs to take action now. From Gigi Hadid to Chrissy Teigan, these celebs are holding nothing back. To their advantage, having millions of followers makes them an influential source of change in the digital era that we live in.
Teigan posted an image of a toddler the same age as her oldest daughter, Luna, highlighting how devastating it would be to separate a child of that age from their parents.
this little girl is the same age as my daughter. luna is the happiest thing. the funniest girl. and she is absolutely terrified to look around and realize she is too far away from us, even for seconds. the fear she would feel here fills me with rage and sadness. pic.twitter.com/riSV8ADRFe

Karlie Kloss took to Instagram to encourage everyone to call their senators in support of stopping these immigrant families from being torn apart saying that, “It’s not the time to say “there are no words”, there are many.”
It’s heartbreaking to watch from halfway across the world what is happening in our own country. It’s not the time to say “there are no words”, there are many. Politicizing the lives of these defenseless children and ripping them from their parents is heartless. We have to be the voices for these kids, and I support anyone standing up to do right by them. What can you do? Many things but FIRST, call your congressperson RIGHT NOW and support the bill, US – S 3036. No matter what side of the aisle you are on – speak up. #KeepFamiliesTogether
Thousands of other people are taking to social media in support of this issue hoping to make a change for America and make a change fast.
