Lauren Jauregui voices anger over Trump's immigration policy

Lauren Jauregui is one of the many music stars recently to have expressed anger over Trump's inhumane policy of separating familes crossing the southern border into the US illegally.

The former Fifth Harmony and "Strangers" star condemned the heartlessness, tweeting on June 20:

"I’m ready as fuck for those in power to stop playing political games with INNOCENT lives. Children and adults included. There are millions displaced, and millions more trafficked, and millions more dead. When do your wars end?!???? @ANYBODY

"Also because I see a lot of people talking about this administration. This administration definitely went blatant fascist on these latest policies but make no mistake, these centers have been around for longer than trump has been president and they are the very foundation of this country since it’s confiscation from the First Nation people.

"The Japanese internment camps, the ghettos, the prison industrial complex, all of the different things the US government has disguised with nice words and endless “policies”. We need to acknowledge our roots before we can actually permanently solve any of these problems."

At least 2,342 young children have been separated from 2,206 and kept in 'Tender Age Shelters' for at least 6 weeks as part of Trump's crackdown on illegal immigrants.

Yesterday (June 21) Trump bowed to relentless outrage and pressure from the US and around the globe, altering his policy on migrant family separations with an executive order - something he said would not be possible without Congress passing the policy. The executive order, however, may now instigate a 20 day maximum detention being changed until proceedings have been completed, which could take months if not even longer.

"You're going to have a lot of happy people,"  he said whilst signing the order and calling it the most significant presidential move on immigration in half a century, despite the fact that his own administration had caused the problem in the first place.

Meanwhile, amongst the chaos, smiles were at least raised worldwide when Halsey dropped her long-awaited "Strangers" video yesterday featuring Lauren Jauregui (see below), which was met with overwhelming excitement and praise.
