Los Angeles, July 1 (IANS) Celebrities including Kerry Washington, Alysia Reiner, Amy Schumer, Padma Lakshmi, Lin-Manuel Miranda, America Ferrera and Lea Thompson were among the people who marched to rally for immigrant families.
They also urged US President Donald Trump’s administration to reunite children separated from their parents at the border.
People turned out across the US on Saturday at more than 600 locations across New York City, Washington and Los Angeles for the cause, reports tmz.com.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen were also in attendance here. Legend gave a short speech about not giving up the fight for families before debuting a new song.
“Orange is the New Black” actress Diane Guerrero also gave an impassioned and tearful speech in Washington about her own experience of getting separated from her parents when she was 14.
Though Trump signed an executive order to keep immigrant families together on June 20, protests have not died down because progress has been slow.
