Leave it to the Trump administration to ax a program benefiting undocumented immigrants. And leave it to celebrities to voice their displeasure about it.


Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday, Sept. 7, the end of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which protects 800,000 young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Congress has six months to decide on a replacement plan before it’s removed completely.

Celebs like director Ava DuVernay, “Insecure” actress Yvonne Orji, T.I. and others have spoken out against the move, one which Trump promised his supporters during his campaign he’d make.


Gabrielle Union retweeted several responses to the decision, including this one from actress Yvette Nicole Brown.
