​A couple hours before President Donald Trump finally reversed the horrible family separation policy his administration previously enacted, celebrities such as Nicki Minaj used their voice to tell their stories and spread the word about the atrocities of children being torn from their families trying to cross the border.

"I came to this country as an illegal immigrant @ 5 years old," Minaj wrote on ​Instagram. "I can't imagine the horror of being in a strange place & having my parents stripped away from me at the age of 5." Born Onika Tanya Maraj, Minaj hails from Saint James in Trinidad & Tobago. 


"This is so scary to me. Please stop this," she continued. "Can you try to imagine the terror & panic these kids feel right now? Not knowing if their parents are dead or alive, if they’ll ever see them again.."

While the executive order ended the separation of families, it made ​no mention of reuniting the thousands of children already separated. Though the families will now stay together, they could still be detained by ICE agents ​indefinitely.


Nicki Minaj, arguably the most famous female rapper of all time, is now prepping the release of her ​next album Queen, due out on August 10th, as well as as upcoming tour with Future.
