The 26-year-old actress argues for a genuine Instagram post they share on Saturday night, gathering her fans to stand up against the & # 39; absolutely inhumane & # 39; crisis.

& # 39; Children in cages! Sleep on concrete floors with aluminum blankets! No access to simple dignities! How is this still happening? & # 39; the actress is from Texas and is of Mexican-American descent wrote on Saturday.

# It is absolutely inhumane to treat someone like this, let alone children. I can't even imagine what they're going through. We must ensure that this finally stops! & # 39; she added.

The former Disney star then urged its fans to call their local representatives to complain about the camps with the hope of making changes.

The post earned more than 5 million likes, but not everyone supported the Come and Get it singer.

Some people called on her to post a seductive photo of themselves while giving the caption to the detention camps instead of giving a picture of the circumstances at the border.

& # 39; Because posting a glamorous photo of yourself gives real light to the situation & # 39 ;, an Instagram user commented.

But most Instagram users thanked her for using her platform to speak out.

& # 39; A woman with power who knows how to use it for better change is also called a queen. I stand, & # 39; wrote a fan. & # 39;

& # 39; THIS is exactly how you should use your platform for things that matter, thanks queen, & # 39; another added.

& # 39; Thank you for using your platform and addressing what's going on in this sick world! We need more people like you, & someone else added.

Migrants arriving at the border between the US and Mexico are held in foreign prisons in miserable conditions.

In the detention centers for children, minors are not only separated from their parents, but also basic provisions such as soap and toothbrushes and towels are refused while waiting for their family status as a citizen.

A case brought to the US Court of Appeal, which was summoned last week, asked a federal judge to undergo immediate inspections and described terrible conditions under which migrant children had no showers for eight days, no diapers, no toothbrushes or soap, and unsanitary conditions that lead to extreme cold and flu.

Kinderen Children have refused soap and toothbrushes, immersed in unsafe conditions. Divorced from their family, subjected to cruel treatment that leads to permanent trauma. And some die in custody – or die with parents crossing the Rio Grande.

& # 39; They are the by-product of a deliberate Trump government strategy to terrorize immigrant communities and criminalize immigration – from imprisoning children in inhumane circumstances to imminent widespread raids to break families over reports of immigrants living in American custody dying and abuse by ICE and CBP agents, & the organization added.
