Laura Dern, Lin-Manuel Miranda, America Ferrera Among Stars at Rallies to Protest Trump Immigration Policy

”We are out here to save the soul of our nation,“ Alicia Keys said at a ”Families Belong Together“ march against family separation at the border

“Superstore” star America Ferrera, “Hamilton’s” Lin-Manuel Miranda and R&B star Alicia Keys were among the big-name stars who joined the thousands of protesters who gathered on Saturday to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policy

In dozens of cities across the country, protesters gathered at various “Families Belong Together” marches to protest the administration’s zero-tolerance policy to detain and separate unauthorized migrant parents from their children attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I am here not only as a brand new mother, as the proud child of Honduran immigrants and not only an American who sees it as her duty to be here defending justice,” Ferrera said at the gathering in Washington D.C. “I am here as a human being with a beating heart, who can feel pain, who understands compassion and who can easily imagine what it must feel like to struggle the way families are struggling right now.”

“This fight does not belong to one group of people, one color of people, one race of people, one gender — it belongs to all of us. What makes humans remarkable is our capacity to imagine. We have an imagination, let’s use it,” she said.

Keys also delivered a speech at the rally, accompanied by her 7-year-old son. “Our democracy is at stake. Our humanity is at stake. We are out here to save the soul of our nation,” she said.

Miranda sang a lullaby rendition of the “Hamilton” song “Dear Theodosia,” which he dedicated to the children who were separated from their parents and detained after crossing into the U.S.
