Just two days after welcoming her first son and presenting him to the world in an exclusive interview, Longoria is speaking out about the current border crisis following Trump’s zero tolerance policy.
43-year-old actress Eva Longoria gave birth to her first child in Los Angeles on June 19, and she didn’t take long to reveal the first photo of her and her husband’s José Bastón newborn to Hello! USA.
The news outlet had the privilege of releasing the first official picture of little Santiago Enrique Bastón, son of Longoria with her husband, Mexican businessman José Bastón, sharing the loving portrait on their Instagram account.
The Desperate Housewives star shared the post by the popular magazine, and, apart from thanking her fans for their words of support and congratulations for becoming a mother, the actress addressed the immigration crisis.
With the new perspective she already has after giving birth to a child, the 43-year-old she took to the social network to share her feelings about the separation of families that have resulted from the recent policy.
‘In light of my son’s birth, I wanted to bring focus on the families that have been separated at the border. Having my son next to me, I cannot imagine him being taken from my arms,’ wrote Longoria.
‘Families belong together which is why we must do what we can to reunite them,’ she added.
Longoria went on to reveal that she is supporting some of the non-governmental organizations that are working to help the families affected by the latest decisions from the administration, namely ACLU and RAICES.
These organizations, with the help of thousands of contributors, are funding legal services from the separated families.
In a recent development, President Trump announced on June 19 that he was going to reverse the executive order that started the crisis, explaining that detentions of immigrants are going to continue, but the families will be kept together. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
