Pop singer Kesha has debuted a new music video pleading the case for illegal alien DREAMers amid an announcement that she has partnered with United We Dream, a group that supports DACA recipients.
The Praying singer announced her support of the illegal alien group after meeting with its co-founder, Cristina Jiménez, at the Time 100 Gala in April, according to the New York Post’s PageSix.
“I was so moved by what she and her team are doing to empower immigrant youth in our country,” the 31-year-old singer wrote on a Facebook post.
The visual see Kesha singing in the back of a driverless car while immigrants are seen leaving their homes in hope to find freedom with the pop singer in a floating car.
Even the stars and the moon don’t shine quite like we do
Dreamers searchin’ for the truth
After all we’ve been through, no, we won’t stand and salute
So we just ride, we just cruise, livin’ like there’s nothing left to lose
If we die before we wake, who we are is no mistake
This is just the way we’re made
You know what I mean, you on the team
Kesha praised United We Dream for “working to protect” DREAMers who may face deportation with the “scheduled end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.”
“Even though DACA is scheduled to end,” Kesha continued, “United We Dream has continued to fight for justice and dignity for immigrants and helps DREAMers apply for protection.”
“I dedicate my song ‘Hymn’ to DREAMers because I don’t believe that people who came to this country as children should be punished by potentially having their families torn apart if they haven’t done anything wrong,” the singer concluded. “We are all the same, born into whatever circumstance the universe hands us, and I believe it should be a right to be able to dream big.”
The artist has amassed a long record of supporting liberal causes. Kesha has spoken out against the Second Amendment, has criticized religion, and is a major LGBTQ activist. Kesha has also revisited her older music to change pronouns to satisfy gay activists.
