Pop star Selena Gomez told her 152 million Instagram followers that it is inhumane to put “kids in cages” as part of the immigration process, during an angry rant in which she pushed the narrative of the political left to her impressionable young followers.
The Disney star used her vast platform to speak out on the “human rights issues” on the southern border and seemingly placed the blame squarely on the Trump administration’s shoulders, despite the fact the policy and “cages” were in place during the Obama administration.

“Don’t stay silent on this human rights issue- please call your reps 202.224.3121 #CloseTheCamps#FamilesBelongTogether, she added.
