Multiple celebrities have spoken out in the wake of President Donald Trump's controversial anti-immigration policies—the building of a border wall in Mexico and the ban on refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries—including Rihanna, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Lopez, Chrissy Teigen, and Ellen DeGeneres. The latest to lend their voices—and their actions—to the anti-Trump movement are supermodel sistersBella Hadid and Gigi Hadid, who were recently spotted at a protest march in New York on Sunday.
Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid were seen participating in the #NoBanNoWall march that took place in the Battery Park neighborhood of New York City on Sunday afternoon. The protest march was planned in response to the two executive orders that President Trump signed this past week. The first order set into motion the infamous Mexican border wall that Trump promised during his campaign, and the second placed an indefinite ban preventing Muslims from seven foreign countries from entering the U.S. The refugee ban went into place this weekend, sparking protests at international airports and in cities across the country. At the #NoBanNoWall march in New York City, both Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid sported "Love Trumps Hate" pins and took turns holding a sign that read: "We are all Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Jews," with specific letters highlighted to spell out "HUMANS".
Both of Bella and Gigi Hadid's parents immigrated to the United States: Their mother, Yolanda Hadid, relocated from the Netherlands to Los Angeles; while their father, Mohammed Hadid, is a Jordanian-American citizen who came to the U.S. as a teenager. Their father is also a Muslim. "I wouldn't call myself a 'devout' Muslim… but I’m very proud of my heritage," he once told Modern Luxury magazine.
