Lauren Jauregui used her celebrity for a good cause on Saturday. The Cuban singer joined the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) as part of the “Keep the Dream Act Alive March.” The organization caught up with Lauren in the middle of the protest, where she shared her feelings about the Dreamers waiting to learn their fates.

Britney Spears has had enough of her own silence, it seems. The singer famous for trusting former Republican President George W. Bush to a fault may have surprised some on Friday when she took a stance against the administration of President Donald Trump. Britney showed her supports for the Dreamers facing deportation under Donald’s regime.
Selena Gomez is finally using her Instagram platform to speak on real issues. On Friday night the singer spoke out against President Donald Trump’s plan to end the DACA program that celebs like Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, Lauren Jauregui and many other celebs have spent the past week protesting.
“My definition of dreamer is someone that thinks big and believes anything is possible,” the singer’s note stated. “The wonderful people being threatened by the unfortunate reversal of DACA are exactly that.” Selena’s silence on the issue spoke volumes to many, but it looks like she’s finally had a change of heart.
Demi Lovato joined dozens of artists for a new playlist from Spotify. Tons of musicians offered up songs to “No Moment For Silence,” a massive collection of tracks collected to support efforts to protest President Donald Trump’s decision to end the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) immigration program.
Alongside tracks like Justin Bieber’s “Despacito,” Rihanna’s “Needed Me” and Lady Gaga’s “Americano,” Demi added “Sorry Not Sorry” with a message for Dreamers, the children protected by DACA.
“I encourage each and everyone of you to stand for immigration,” Demi said in her recorded message. “To everyone out there who is fighting for this cause, I encourage you to stay strong.”
President Donald Trump has made another step towards not making America great again and has announced his plan to end DACA. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was a program created by Barack Obama in an effort to allow illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors to have their deportation deferred.
Now that President Trump is ending the dreamer’s program, celebs are flocking to Twitter and voicing their anger towards the political move. Trump’s biggest critic, Lauren Jauregui, used her Twitter fingers to once again voice just how disgusted she is by the ordeal.
DACA has the chance to be saved as long as Congress can come to a deal with President Trump, saving 800,000 undocumented immigrants.
