Jennifer Lawrence Speaks Out Against Immigration Ban, Prays for 'Sanity and Compassion' in the White House

By
Jennifer Lawrence continues to speak out against President Donald Trump.
The Passengers star delivered a heartfelt post on Monday in response to the commander in chief's controversial immigration ban, which left many travelers detained in airports and drew widespread protests over the weekend.
"My broken heart goes out to the innocent lives of Muslim refugees that are trying to escape terror and find safety for their families," the 26-year-old actress wrote. "I and millions of Americans understand that someone's race or religion should never keep them in harms way."
"It should be every person's duty to help and protect anyone no matter their nationality," she continued. "I pray for sanity and compassion to return to the White House."
Lawrence has been politically engaged since the election of Trump, throwing her support last week behind the Women's March, with demonstrations that took place across the United States and around the world.
"Watching the Women's March from the set in Budapest. I wish I could be there but my thoughts and full support are with those marching today," she wrote. "Do not give this administration a 'chance' to do the terrible things it wants to do. LGBT and environmental information has already been removed from the White House website. Fight for equality, fight for women to have control over their bodies. Thank you to all of those who are taking action!"
"PS Donald Trump, you're a bad dancer," Lawrence ended the post.
Meanwhile, in addition to demonstrations in airports around the country, Trump's executive order has drawn criticism from some members of his own party, as well as many in Hollywood.
Stars, including Miley Cyrus, Kerry Washington, Amy Adams, and Mahershala Ali, have spoken out passionately on social media in opposition to the ban, as well as at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. Some also called for donations to the American Civil Liberties Union, which, through swift legal action, won a critical stay over the weekend against a portion of Trump's executive order.
