Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who also serves as a global Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, says that as a global citizen, US President Donald Trump's recent immigration ban - which she described as a "political witch hunt" - has deeply affected her.
In a blog post on the professional networking website LinkedIn on Thursday, which Priyanka joined last year as a LinkedIn Influencer, she wrote, "All of the banned countries are places where a lot of UNICEF work is going on, where children are suffering the most. What can I add that people across professions and age groups have not already said? But adding your voice will definitely make a difference. And make a difference we must."
I have never dated, says Priyanka Chopra
She continued, "Please join me in making our voice stronger so that globally, our children are not discriminated against on the basis of their religion and do not have to bear the brunt of a political witch hunt."
Priyanka is currently in the US to shoot the second season of her popular TV show Quantico. She divides her time between India and the US.
Protests took place at airports across the US in response to Trump's recent travel ban, preventing entry from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
