VIDEO: America Ferrera Speaks at Women's March 2017: 'We Are America'

America Ferrera takes the stage to speak to the crowd of a million people at the 2017 Women’s March on Saturday (January 21) in Washington, D.C.

The 32-year-old actress was one of the first speakers at the event and she reminded the people in attendance that they represent America, not the new president.

“It’s been a heartrending time to be both a woman and an immigrant in this country,” she said. “Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack, and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America. We are America. And we are here to stay.”

“We march today for our families and our neighbors, for our future, for the causes we claim and for the causes that claim us. We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war. He would like us to forget the words, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free,’ and instead, take up a credo of hatred,” America added.

    She must not be speaking about herself when she talks about being a woman and an immigrant…she was born in LA.

    She is a little delusional…no a lot delusional. We have an election and the people have spoken. You may not like him, like I didn’t like his destructive predecessor, but you need to move on and support him. To not include pro-lifers in your little group, shows you aren’t speaking for all women. Those who marched today are asking for a permit to commit murder. Should we just write a new law saying to commit murder is now okay? Let’s let all those sitting in prison for the act of murder free because after all, if its okay for a woman to kill another human being it is giving a pass to everyone to kill another human. You celebrities have a right to an opinion, but you have no right to try to jam your irresponsibility down our throats.

    WHAT’S THEIR PROBLEM? all these delusional celebs are the reason Trump won

  • Cooper

    I have voted for Hillary but the left is freaking out, especially these celebs who make up the extreme left. I don’t think they can take that tens of millions of people didn’t care for their opinions. also, they complete forget the American people voted for who is in the house, senate and presidency so the people spoke. There’s also a huge difference between immigrant and illegal immigrant so idk why they insist on the false illusion they are creating that all immigrants are in danger. Every country has a border policy and citizenship process.

  • Cooper

    I think it’s funny they are under the assumption all woman want and are okay with abortions. But they did exclude woman so we know they are just as decisive as trump.
