In June, President Trump’s “zero-tolerance policy” faced international backlash because more than 2 thousand children had been separated from their parents while crossing the border. Of course, people could not keep silence, and many celebrities took to various social media platforms to react.

Take, for example, Chrissy Teigen. The mom of 2 spoke out against the controversial policy, sharing a picture of a crying immigrant girl and adding a heartbreaking caption.

But Chrissy was not the only celeb to hit back at Donald Trump. Just recently, Kristen Bell gave an exclusive interview to PEOPLE where she revealed she sympathized with separated families. As the actress said:

As a mother, my family is my first priority. And do not underestimate the love of family. When you attack one family, you attack all families. And families fight back.

The policy is now reversed, but there are still hundreds of children removed from the parents. And Bell doesn’t intend to stop there, promising to fight until all these kids are returned to their parents.

Kristen is no stranger to humanitarian work. The Bad Moms actress raises money for a non-profit organization RAICES that aims to provide legal services to immigrant families and children in Texas.
