    In the note signed “With love, Chrissy, John, Luna and Miles,” Teigen wrote:

    “John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration. These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent. The ACLU is committed to defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families.”

    Teigen noted that the ACLU also supports reproductive rights, criminal justice reform and First Amendment rights.
