"At some point in the future our children will ask us: 'Is it true, did our country really take babies from their parents and put them in detention centers?'" George and Amal Clooney said in a statement posted to their website. They said the Clooney Foundation for Justice will donate the money to the Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights.

'And when we answer yes, they'll ask us what we did about it.

George and Amal Clooney are joining the leagues of Hollywood's A-listers-including Reese Witherspoon, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and more-standing in opposition to the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy, which has resulted in the separation of thousands of immigrant children from their parents. "We can't change this administration's policy but we can help defend the victims of it".

"We are seeing things right now on our American borders that are so shockingly and disgracefully inhumane and un-American that it is simply enraging", Springsteen said.

Maria Woltjen, Executive Director, Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights at the University of Chicago thanked the Clooneys in response. "This Administration's policy disregards worldwide law and basic principles of human decency", Woltjen said. The celebrity power couple said their twin toddlers inspired them to make the donation. "To treat children in such a cruel manner not only violates their legal rights but also their basic needs", Woltjen told Us in a statement on Wednesday.

For the famous couple, it comes as just one of their recent good deeds, as in February they also donated $500,000 to the March for Our Lives campaign, which was demonstration to advocate for gun control.
