Thousands of people amassed across the country for Families Belong Together, a day of action to support keeping immigrant families together. Of course, politically active celeb couple Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend were at the Los Angeles event.
They brought their children to witness democracy in action and most notably, Chrissy wore her newborn baby son, Miles, on stage.
Chrissy introduced John who performed the song “Preach” and also took a minute to give a rousing, heartfelt speech that left many in tears.
“This is his first rally,” Chrissy said, referring to Miles. “I’m really proud to be here, obviously. You guys are so incredible and give me so much hope . . . I’m incredibly proud to be a daughter of an immigrant. My mother grew up in a very small village in Thailand . . . we love that the American story is filled with people who come from all over the world to have a better life here. America at its best is big, beautiful, and diverse. It’s not small, it’s not petty, and it’s not exclusive, like Mar-a-Lago.”
“Can you imagine this city without immigrants?” she continued. “Immigrants don’t come here to take away from America, they come here to add to America.”
She also impersonated Donald Trump during the speech.
