So, ICYMI, President Donald Trump is still not so found of immigrants.
Mexico was just ranked the second deadliest country in the world, after only Syria. Drug trade is largely the cause. We will BUILD THE WALL!

There are lots of people, however, who do not share his sentiment â€” and have been plenty vocal in speaking out against Trumpâ€™s â€œAmerica Firstâ€Â public policy strategy. (The phrase â€œAmerica First,â€ incidentally, hasÂ rootsÂ tracing back to anti-Semitic and racist movements in the U.S. in the 1940s.)
One suchÂ person â€” who is not taking the anti-immigration â€œAmerica Firstâ€ policy sitting down â€” is aÂ Twitter user withÂ a T-shirt that says, â€œImmigrants Make America Great,â€ a riff on Trumpâ€™s infamous â€œMake American Great Againâ€ slogan and type treatment. She then went shopping while wearing the T-shirt. After all, June is Immigrant Heritage Month.

Clearly,Â her fashion choice â€” worn while shopping at Old Navy â€” hadÂ a huge impact.
You came into my old navy we all talked about your shirt when you left! The lady I was ringing up was an immigrant and said she was touched.

Some on Twitter shared that they too were out rocking the â€œImmigrants Make America Greatâ€ shirt.

And lots of people on Twitter have also been voicing their support for the Immigrants Make America Great message in all sorts of different ways:

For those looking to respond to anti-immigrant sentiment through what they wear, there are other like-minded T-shirts available online.
Thereâ€™s aÂ Robert Geller-designed shirtÂ that benefits the ACLU. Celebrity chef JosÃ© AndrÃ©s wore anÂ â€œI Am an Immigrantâ€ shirt when heÂ spoke outÂ against Trumpâ€™s immigration policy at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami in February. (AndrÃ©s alsoÂ backed outÂ of his deal to open a restaurant in Trumpâ€™s Washington, D.C., hotel in 2015 following Trumpâ€™s anti-immigration rhetoric on the campaign trail.)
Independent #resistance designer Eleven5 offers aÂ T-shirtÂ that states, simply, â€œImmigrant.â€ And Pinkshop offers anÂ â€œAleppoâ€ T-shirt,Â sales of whichÂ go to support Syrian refugees, another population of immigrants whoÂ have been targeted by Trump through hisÂ refugee ban.
