Alicia Keys Tweets Support for DACA: ‘Children Should Have a Field of Dreams to Play In’
On Thursday, Alicia Keys joined a long list of artists who have shown support for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) following President Donald Trump's plan to end the program.
In a series of tweets, Keys showed her support for the program.
"All children should have a field of dreams to play in." She added, "They should be safely wrapped in the security of the endless potential with them."
The singer continued, "They should be free to crawl through tunnels we use to find ourselves. Without having to worry about the rescinding of their human rights. Children should be able to color outside the lines, make a beautiful mess and create their own lives. They should be free to laugh and live without walls, borders, bans or repeals #DefendDACA #IStandWithTheDreamers #DACA #WeAreHere."
Keys has been outspoken about Trump in the past. While performing in New York City in 2016, Keys called out the president for his comments about grabbing a woman by her p----. The singer called out Trump for his comments and put her middle finger up in the air.
