After President Donald Trump's executive action on immigration and refugees, Jennifer Lopez took to social media to stand in solidarity with immigrants around the country with a post she captioned, "We are all immigrants."

The multifaceted artist added: "Honestly, I feel like we are in a nightmare right now! In a country founded by immigrants how did immigrant become a bad word!!!"
