'Dear Ivanka': Celebrities target Trump's daughter in Instagram campaign

Trump commented at an Axios event last week that separating immigrant families was a "low point" for her.

The same celebrities launched a campaign directed towards Trump past year in response to the president's announcement that he would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a policy that extends certain protections to undocumented people brought to the U.S.as children.

The administration has scrambled for weeks to reunite children with their families following a federal court order, but hundreds remain separated. This resulted in the separation of thousands of children from their parents and an global outcry, until the president reversed course and signed an executive order to keep families together. "You said family separation was a "low point" for you". This crisis is ongoing. "There have been multiple claims of sexual and physical abuse in detention". These abuses have occurred on your father's watch and under the leaderships of Secretary Nielsen. The #DearIvanka campaign is also calling specifically for the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

"End these racist, inhumane and unconscionable abuses now!" the post demands.

Now can we please just have PeeCee flash us a proper glimpse of that bling on her finger so we can all calm down a little? In an interview, Priyanka had stated, "I am a very live in the today, maximum live in the next two months kind of person".

"These are not easy issues, these are incredibly hard issues and like the rest of the country, I experienced them actually in a very emotional way", Trump said.

"I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children so I would agree with that sentiment". I think immigration is incredibly complex as a topic. "Illegal immigration is incredibly complicated". The children were separated as a result of the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policies.

Flicker said they reached out to anyone they could get hold of on the list of 1,147 Instagram accounts Trump follows, but only a handful have posted the image so far - though to be fair, Trump's following list is a varied bunch, including actor Gal Gadot, Republican senator Joni Erst and fellow White House daughter Charlotte Rose Pence.
