Priyanka Chopra Speaks Out Against Trump's Immigration Ban

Priyanka Chopra looks super chic while heading into the studio for an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (February 2) in New York City.

The 34-year-old Quantico actress pre-taped her interview for Friday night’s episode.

That day, Priyanka released a new blog for Linkedin in which she wrote about her experiences as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and why she opposes President Trump‘s immigration ban.

“The US, has always acknowledged that it is a country built by immigrants. The anger, frustration and helplessness that has followed US State Department’s 90-day ban of people from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen from entering the US is justified,” Priyanka said. “As a global citizen, this has deeply affected me.”

“Getting ready to post this blog, I was grounded by the news. All of the ‘banned’ countries are places where a lot of UNICEF work is going on, where children are suffering the most. What can I add that people across professions and age groups have not already said? But adding your voice will definitely make a difference,” she added. “And make a difference we must. Please join me in making our voice stronger so that globally, our children are not discriminated against on the basis of their religion and do not have to bear the brunt of a political witch hunt.”
