Following Trump's orders to put an on the Obama-era program that protects young undocumented immigrants, many celebrities announced their support on social media for DACA recipients.
Nearly 800,000 DREAMers protected under the policy, established during the Obama administration in 2012, could now lose their legal protection and become eligible for deportation. As thousands have already started rallying after the announcement, Spotify created a playlist, titled “No Moment For Silence,” to show support to DREAMers.
The pro-DACA playlist includes 56 tracks from artists such as Daddy Yankee, Demi Lovato, Juanes, and many more. Aside from the songs, some artists also contributed a personal audio message in support of the Dreamers.
Cuban-born singer Camila Cabello shared her own journey about growing up as an immigrant in the United States. “As an immigrant who came to the U.S. as a child, I know what it’s like to struggle and to never take any opportunity that came my way for granted. I stand with DREAMers, who have fought so hard to be recognized as the Americans they are,” the former Fifth Harmony bandmate said.
“I encourage each and every one of you to support and stand for immigration. For everyone out there who is fighting for this cause, I encourage you to stay strong,” Lovato also shared.
