While political advocates are putting the hard word on US President Donald Trump to pass a clean version of the ‘Dream Act 2017’, that could lead to around 800,000 children of illegal immigrants becoming US citizens, celebrities are putting the softer word on his daughter, Ivanka. Well, alright, they’re kind of stuffing up her Thanksgiving with these kinda guilt-mongering Insta and Twitter posts:
Earlier this year, President Trump called an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (or DACA) program, one which was doing quite well thanks to its instalment by former president Barack Obama. The hundreds of thousands of children of illegal immigrants now left in the lurch have been dubbed ‘Dreamers’.
Celebrities hoping to encourage the President’s daughter to do the good deed and reinstate the Dreamers project before December include Cara Delevingne, Olivia Wilde, Alexa Chung and Sophia Amoruso, all of whose Twitter followers have pretty much agreed unanimously and posting ditto comments.
The celebrities were inspired to post their messages on Ivanka’s feed, realising how important the Trump family consider their social media presence. Whether Ivanka takes heed and does something decent with the suggestions, we’ll have to wait and see. Or indeed will those decent choices be veto-ed by her own father? Antonino Tati
