Sophia Amoruso, the founder of online retailer Nasty Gal and author of #GirlBoss, kicked off the trend when she tagged Trump in a post encouraging the First Daughter to advocate for a clean DREAM Act for immigrant youth.
The DREAM Act is a bill whose purpose is to protect undocumented minors who arrive in the United States as children and receive legal status through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). In September, President Trump announced that DACA would be rescinded. The clean DREAM Act is a plan to protect youths, known as Dreamers, who are currently protected by DACA.
Other celebrities that Ivanka follows on the platform, including Olivia Wilde, Sophia Bush and Cara Delevigne have all followed Amoruso's lead, sharing the post on their Instagram feeds in the hope it might influence Ivanka.
"Dear Ivanka," the post reads. "I see you're following me on Instagram. This Thanksgiving I would be grateful if you use the influence you have to advocate for a CLEAN Dream Act by December. Every day that passes without a clean Dream Act means anxiety and deportation for immigrant youth. 7,901 youth have already lost DACA and 122 more will use it each day. Thank you and Happy Holidays."
