George & Amal Clooney Donate $100,000 to Help Children Separated From Families at Border

George and Amal Clooney have announced a donation of $100,000 to the help the migrant children who have been torn away from their parents at the border between Mexico and the United States.

“At some point in the future our children [one-year-old twins Ella and Alexander] will ask us: ‘Is it true, did our country really take babies from their parents and put them in detention centers?’ And when we answer yes, they’ll ask us what we did about it. What we said. Where we stood. We can’t change this administration’s policy but we can help defend the victims of it,” the couple told People in a statement. “Today, the Clooney Foundation for Justice will donate $100,000 to the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.”

Maria Woltjen, the Young Center’s Executive Director, released a statement thanking the couple. “This Administration’s policy disregards international law and basic principles of human decency,” she said. “To treat children in such a cruel manner not only violates their legal rights but also their basic needs. We are doing everything we can to advocate on behalf of the thousands of children who are separated and alone, and we are grateful for the generous support of George and Amal Clooney and the Clooney Foundation for Justice — it could not be more vital at this time.”

Amal Clooney Speaks Publicly About George for First Time, Brings Him to Tears at AFI Tribute (Video)

Amal Clooney appears on stage to talk publicly about her husband George for the first time at the American Film Institute’s 2018 Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute on Thursday (June 7) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The 40-year-old human rights lawyer opened her speech by saying how she is nervous to speak. “It’s somehow easier for me to address a court on behalf a detainee, than to speak publicly as I am doing for the first time tonight about my husband,” she said. “I do so out of immense pride of all he has achieved.”

“Here are a few things you may not know about [George]. First, he is a gentleman. He is a gentleman in every sense of the word and in a way that seems so rare these days and perhaps even outdated,” Amal said. “Everyone who knows him, even those who oppose him politically or who have quarreled with him professionally, will tell you, he has not forgotten his Kentucky manners. On every sense I visit, I’m told by crew that George sticks up for the most vulnerable.”

“Although George modestly attributes much of the success we are celebrating here to luck, I think it’s incredible talent and character that got him here,” Amal continued. “And these attributes also make him an amazing husband and father. I met George when I was 35 and starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster. Then we met and started hiding out in my London flat and very soon it felt like, no matter what happened, I would never want to be with anyone else.”
