Comedian George Lopez is selling a jacket with a message saying American needs to “keep the kids” but “deport the racist” in response to President Donald Trump’s border and immigration enforcement.
The new Lopez jacket is inspired by Melania Trump, who recently raised a ruckus by wearing a Zara jacket with the slogan “I really don’t care, do u?” emblazoned across its back.
Lopez claimed that the proceeds earned from selling his new line of activist clothing will go toward helping illegal immigrants fight U.S. authorities, TMZ reported.
“My George Lopez Store will be making these items, money donated to organizations focused on reuniting parents and their children,” Lopez wrote on a June 24 Instagram post.
The post features a photo of Lopez and fellow comedian D.L. Hughley wearing the jackets.

Lopez is working with the Venice-based Inland store to sell his gear and will be available at Inland outlets as well as the Lopez online store for $99 per jacket. Tees with a similar message will cost $19.99.
Before Trump won the election, Lopez told TMZ “there’s enough racists in this country for him to get elected.”
After the election, Lopez rejected the idea of giving President Trump a chance, saying, “I’ll give him a chance to suck my ass.”
