TIP says, "I’m literally sick to my stomach about these babies being snatched out of the arms of their mothers!!!"
The U.N. Human Rights Council has been critical of the Trump administration. Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the UN's most senior human rights official condemned the US for separating children from their parents at the US-Mexico border. On Tuesday, the administration announced the withdrawal of the United States' presence from the Geneva-based council, calling it "hypocritical". The U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, even called it a "cesspool of political bias." The withdrawals come directly after the council's critique mentioned above. It seems like the American government insists on continuing the practice of splitting families apart. The practice includes detaining and holding children in cages. Some of our fave celebs are bringing awareness to the issue, urging their following to take notice and take action.
Cardi B's slideshow post is a call to action, urging citizens to contact their representatives in order to address the issue.
Kehlani shared her personal thoughts on the matter in the caption accompanying her post:
"haven’t spoken because the words seem so redundant and full of anger. i’m angry. i’m sad. i’m disappointed. the worst is that i’m not surprised. we know this country is absolutely not shit but right now our government is saying “we ain’t shit” wit their whole chests. feeling helpless is damaging but there ARE ways to try. the worst thing you can do is not try when opportunities to are presented. my heart is with these kids, and their parents. this is a next fucking level."
TIP posted the same content as Cardi B in addition to the following. On this second post, he says: "I’m literally sick to my stomach about these babies being snatched out of the arms of their mothers!!! It’s a travesty of enormous proportions that MUST BE PUT TO AN END!!!! We ALL HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!!!! I’m ashamed to be an American!!!"
