Avid President Donald Trump critics, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, have found their own way to celebrate POTUS’s 72nd birthday this year, as their family has donated $288,000 to ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), $72,000 for each member of the family.

Their generous donation was purposely done to make a loud protest to the immigration policies implemented by the Trump administration that have led to thousands of children being separated from their parents at the border. Teigen is one of many who strongly opposes these policies and believes that they’re “inhumane.”

“John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration,” Teigen tweeted on the president’s birthday. “These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent.”

Outrage broke out when it was discovered that more than 1,300 children have been reportedly separated from their parents due to Trump’s “zero tolerance” border policy. Teigen says that she and Legend are making this donation because the ACLU is working on “defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families.”

Teigen then had a follow-up tweet that urged others to make a donation to ALCU in honor of Trump’s 72nd birthday.

Teigen has been very open with her disapproval of Trump, which ultimately led to him blocking her on Twitter last year. However, a federal judge later ruled that it was “unconstitutional” for the president to block anybody of social media based on their political beliefs.
