Alexa Chung, Amy Schumer and others are using the social media platform to refocus attention on child separation
Celebrities including Amy Schumer and Alexa Chung have launched a coordinated campaign urging Ivanka Trump to speak out against the effects of the Trump administration’s family separation policy and to call for the resignation of the secretary of homeland security Kirstjen Nielsen.
Last Thursday, the president’s daughter gave her view on the child separation policy adopted by the White House for the first time. While many have called the policy inhumane, Trump’s assessment was that it was more like a bad day at the office. Describing the policy as “a low point for me”, she added that she was “vehemently against family separation” but that immigration is “incredibly complex as a topic”.
