With her husband on a plane heading to Washington, D.C., Beyoncé is taking a stand against the president’s immigration policies, and she has made a point of expressing her opinions and views on social media.
In an open letter, the “Lemonade” singer and songwriter writes, “I do not agree with the actions taken by President Trump, but I do agree with my family’s decision to come to the United States legally.”
She says her family is the victims of a “racist” system and she believes “the actions taken against my family, and my loved ones, have a deep and profound impact on our nation and our people.”
She also calls on the president to end the “continued targeting” of people who have been in the U.S. for years.
“We have the opportunity to be part of the solution to this crisis.
We have to be willing to speak up,” she says.
Beyoncé, who was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and moved to New York at age 8, says she wants to “open a dialogue about what this country is about” and “why it is that we’re seeing people forced to flee their homes, to be deported, to lose their jobs and their homes.”
She wants people to “learn how much our country means to me and my family.
I want to be able to share my story with others.”
In a video on the album’s YouTube channel, she explains, “To have an opportunity to speak out, to tell my story, and to share it is the most powerful thing I can do.”
In her video, Beyoncé shows her supporters that “the United States of America is a country where you are not only welcomed, but you are celebrated.”
“There are people who are in fear of their safety because they are a minority, or they are queer, or because of their race,” she adds.
“I want people to know that the United Kingdom is a safe country.”
Beyonacontinue to explain her stance in a video that was released Friday, saying, “This country was built on immigrants.
People of color were not given equal rights, but they were given a chance to live their dreams and contribute to our country.
I am a proud immigrant and I want everyone to know it.”
She added that she believes that “we need to continue to talk about the issues that are happening around us, because they affect all of us.”
“As long as we continue to ignore and downplay these issues, we will continue to fail our most vulnerable people, and we will not be able for this country to thrive,” she wrote.
The country’s new immigration policies are “extremely discriminatory,” she said.
“This is not a one-time thing, this is happening on a daily basis.
It’s not just about one person.
This is happening to all of the people who live in this country.””
The government should be able and the government should do everything it can to make sure that we do not continue to see people of color and immigrants be targeted in ways that are illegal,” she added.
In a series of tweets Friday, the pop star shared photos of her daughter, Laganja, who is 4, and her husband, Jay Z.
In one of the tweets, Beyonce wrote, “Our family is so proud of my daughter Laganjia, and our family is committed to the safety of our daughter and all of our people.
I know that her heart and her spirit will always be with us.”
Beyonce has been criticized for her immigration stance, and critics say she’s used her platform to push her personal agenda.
She has also faced criticism for saying on “The View” that people of African descent should not be allowed to serve in the military.
“The fact that a black person has a service member with whom she is not even close is really, really, scary,” she told the show’s co-host, Joy Behar.
“I want to tell you that our country does not treat people like that.
We treat people with dignity and respect.
And we treat them like everybody else.”
Beyons husband, rapper Jay Z, also addressed the issue of her stance on immigration on Friday, telling Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” that he believes immigrants should be allowed into the U, but that “they should be vetted.”
“I think that we need to make a distinction,” he said.
“You have to make it clear that they are coming in the United State of America, but we’re not going to let them in.
I think that that is what we have to do.”
He added that he has a “very different opinion” on the subject.
“In general, I think if they’re coming here to work and we’re all here working, I would love to see them here,” he told Fox News.
“But the bottom line is, they have to get through the vetting process.
They have to
