Alejandro Sanz has arrived in the U.S. to begin the long-awaited #LaGira tour but also to create a new movement in support to a cause: the Dreamers. As a defender of the Dreamers -- undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. at a young age -- Sanz has launched a charitable t-shirt which will be available to purchase at all of his concerts in the United States and through his Charity Stars web portal

"They [dreamers] came to this country from a very young age and don't know another," Sanz tells Billboard. “They did not commit a crime and did not ask to come. They are here because of the circumstances of their parents.”

The collected funds will help the Dream Big Nevada DACA renewal fund that provides status renewal assistance; Ascend Educational Fund that provides funds for their education, and the "Entrepreneurship Fund" of Immigrants Rising's that provides subsidies to undocumented entrepreneurs who work to create positive social change.

Alejandro Sanz is not alone for this campaign. The Spanish singer is also being supported by many stars including Puerto Rican Ricky Martin who tweeted “ #WeAllDream. We all belong. We are all one. And everyone matters.”

#LaGira starts today (Aug. 28) at the Rosemont Theater in Chicago and will be visiting cities including Chicago, New York, Miami, Houston and Los Angeles. The first international run of the tour wraps up on Oct. 5 in San Jose, California.
