Ashton Kutcher is the latest celebrity to speak out against Donald Trump’s controversial immigration ban. The actor took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the news, reminding fans that his wife, Mila Kunis, came to the United States on a refugee visa.
“My wife came to this country on a refugee visa in the middle of the Cold War! My blood is boiling right now!” Kutcher Tweeted. “We have never been a nation built on fear. Compassion that is the root ethic of America. Our differences are fundamental 2R sustainability.”
Kunis was born in Soviet Ukraine and came to America at the age of seven during the Cold War. Although she isn’t active on social media, her husband was sure to use his account to support her.
“If standing for the America that doesn’t discriminate makes me a left-wing actor who is out of touch. Fuck it,” he continued. “As an American I respect my president but I do not respect this policy #ABetterWay.
“I believe in protecting borders. I believe in enabling safety and security but we do so with honor. We are Americans #ABetterWay. This isn’t no-nonsense policy, this is no-sense policy.”
Kutcher also chose to make a statement during Sunday night’s SAG Awards, where he said that everyone is welcome in his America.
