America Ferrera & Alicia Keys Give Powerful Speeches at Families Belong Together Rally in Washington D.C.

America Ferrera and Alicia Keys hit the stage during the Families Belong Together March – Freedom for Immigrants March on Saturday afternoon (June 30) in Washington, D.C.

The 34-year-old Superstore actress and the 37-year-old Grammy-winning singer both gave emotional speeches as they joined in the march to end President Trump‘s policy on separating immigrant children from their families.

“I am here not only as a brand new mother, as the proud child of Honduran immigrants and not only an American who sees it as her duty to be here defending justice. I am here as a human being with a beating heart, who can feel pain, who understands compassion and who can easily imagine what it must feel like to struggle the way families are struggling right now,” America said. “It is that simple. This fight does not belong to one group of people, one color of people, one race of people, one gender — it belongs to all of us. What makes humans remarkable is our capacity to imagine. We have an imagination, let’s use it.”

Also hitting the stage at the rally was Orange is the New Black star Diane Guerrero.

    they should keep their mouths shut and stick to their day jobs those families are being separated because the parents willfully broke the law to come here in the first place and were coached on how to seek asylum and tee kids would get everything for free taking it from natural born citizens who need those services

    Hollywood libtards and their powerful speeches what else is new

  • wearing

    At least they can understand the implication of the actions of others. I’m not so certain about you.

  • wearing

    You sound like one of those disgusting nazi sympathizers who’d turn their heads because the Jews weren’t your problem. Just despicable.

  • dillionam

    Hear we go with your Nazi talking points given to you for being a puppet. An American citizen expressing their freedom of speech different from yours is a Nazi.

    Um, no, turning your eyes away from legislation being passed that keeps entire races in the gutter and allows them to be murdered is a Nazi, idiot.

    These celebrities are the worse examples of hypocrisy, they are all for illegal immigration. Just pack them in among ordinary citizens but not in their gated communities, children schools, restaurants or gilded lives. The illegal aliens at the border are not slaves they can turn around and leave. Instead, they chosed to ignore the immigration laws of a sovereign country and use their children to force themselves in. African Americans were brought to this country as slaves they did not have the luxury of being able to pick up and extricate themselves from their terrible, horrible circumstances.

    Your comments are so stupid, sorry milking and wanting benefits from a country that you illegally entered is vastly different then Jews being systematically slaughtered in their own countries because of their religion
    None these people are prosecuted in their home countries, don’t know of any civil war in South and Central America… for them to justify putting their kids in harms way to illegally enter America.

  • Sim

    LoL Entire race…. What race exactly are South, Central Americans?? pretty sure like Canada and America they are made up different nationalities and races.

    If you break the law of someone else’s country you shouldn’t be rewarded. If they want their family together then their children should be sent back home instead being a burden financially on American citizens.

  • Sim

    If they undertook the implications of others actions they wouldn’t be demanding Americans reward criminality… Especially since it would just encourage more of it, putting more children at risk.

  • wearing

    They’re not murdering anyone, they’re crossing an imaginary line. Give me a break.

  • wearing

    What’s stupid is your inability to care about anyone else’s plight until you yourself are facing it. Your ignorance of violence and wars doesn’t even warrant any more of my time. People like you shouldn’t be allowed to comment until they can answer basic questions about current events. Like bot detectors, but for idiots.
