Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, and more stars rally to read mom's letter after she was separated from 2-year-old son
Oscar-nominated actress Maggie Gyllenhaal referred to as in an enormous want from her Hollywood friends to lend a hand in an American Civil Liberties Union video to handle President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration coverage that has separated just about 2,000 kids from their folks, who had been stuck crossing the border illegally.
On Tuesday, the ACLU launched a four-minute video titled, “My Title is Mirian” that presentations stars Amy Schumer, James Franco, Chadwick Boseman, Jamie Lee Curtis and plenty of others studying the tale of Mirian, an asylum-seeking Honduran mom who was once separated from her 18-month-old son in April.
The letter main points Mirian’s revel in wherein she fled Honduras in January looking for coverage from govt violence after her house was once tear-gassed. Mirian claimed Border Patrol officers on the U.S. – Mexico border “didn’t supply any reason why” for keeping apart her from her son who grew to become two on July four.
Gyllenhaal created the video along side Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Venture, which Mirian is concerned with as a part of a lawsuit towards the U.S. govt for keeping apart migrant households.
Different stars within the video come with Glenn Shut, Lena Waithe, Riz Ahmed, Aubrey Plaza, Casey Affleck, Jeff Bridges, Means Guy, The RZA, Miguel, Adam Shankman, Alia Shawkat, Anthony Ramos, among others.
