Chrissy Teigen Delivers Powerful Speech While Holding Baby Son At LA Immigration Rally

On Saturday, people across the country participated in more than 700 protests, in all 50 states, banding together for Families Belong Together marches. 

The protests came in the wake of the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy which forced families apart and put thousands of children in camps. 

This separation sparked outrage that has been further propelled as news broke that children, as young as 3-years-old, are being forced to attend their deportation hearings all alone. 

In Los Angeles, California, protesters included stars like Indigenous artist Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, author, model and activist Chrissy Teigen and her husband, musician John Legend. 

Teigen, who works on behalf of numerous causes, has never shied away from calling out President Trump. And Saturday was no exception. 

Teigen stood in front of the Los Angeles marchers and delivered an impassioned speech while cradling her infant son. 

Teigen’s words resounded with the crowd.

Teigen offers a particularly relevant perspective as the child of an immigrant and mother of two young children.

Powerful words, Ms. Teigen. The Resistance is lucky to have you.
