Plenty of celebrities are using their platform to speak out about the recent photos released of children being separated from their families at the border.

Zendaya tweeted “…” yesterday as a reaction to a tweet that showed a young boy with Down Syndrome who was separated from his mom at the American border. The tweet she reacted to also said, “This is one of the most inhumane moments I’ve ever seen.”

Since May, over 2,000 children have been separated from their parents in after they crossed the Southern U.S. border in Texas, as part of a new immigration strategy presented by the Trump Administration.

Cardi B also reacted to the crisis on Instagram yesterday with a picture of a young boy crying out of fear after being separated by his family. The post also included instructions on how to call local representatives in order to make a difference, with “DO IT NOW!!” as the caption.

DO IT NOW !!
