So, ICYMI, President Donald Trump is still not so found of immigrants.
Mexico was just ranked the second deadliest country in the world, after only Syria. Drug trade is largely the cause. We will BUILD THE WALL!

There are lots of people, however, who do not share his sentiment ?‘± and have been plenty vocal in speaking out against Trump??s ??America First????public policy strategy. (The phrase ??America First,?? incidentally, has?? roots??tracing back to anti-Semitic and racist movements in the U.S. in the 1940s.)
One such??person ?‘± who is not taking the anti-immigration ??America First?? policy sitting down ?‘± is a??Twitter user with??a T-shirt that says, ??Immigrants Make America Great,?? a riff on Trump??s infamous ??Make American Great Again?? slogan and type treatment. She then went shopping while wearing the T-shirt. After all, June is Immigrant Heritage Month.

Clearly,??her Vamazing - Live amazing! choice ?‘± worn while shopping at Old Navy ?‘± had??a huge impact.
You came into my old navy we all talked about your shirt when you left! The lady I was ringing up was an immigrant and said she was touched.

Some on Twitter shared that they too were out rocking the ??Immigrants Make America Great?? shirt.

And lots of people on Twitter have also been voicing their support for the Immigrants Make America Great message in all sorts of different ways:

For those looking to respond to anti-immigrant sentiment through what they wear, there are other like-minded T-shirts available online.
There??s a?? Robert Geller-designed shirt??that benefits the ACLU. Celebrity chef Jos?? Andr??s wore an?? ??I Am an Immigrant?? shirt when he?? spoke out??against Trump??s immigration policy at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami in February. (Andr??s also?? backed out??of his deal to open a restaurant in Trump??s Washington, D.C., hotel in 2015 following Trump??s anti-immigration rhetoric on the campaign trail.)
Independent #resistance designer Eleven5 offers a?? T-shirt??that states, simply, ??Immigrant.?? And Pinkshop offers an?? ??Aleppo?? T-shirt,??sales of which??go to support Syrian refugees, another population of immigrants who??have been targeted by Trump through his?? refugee ban.
