Pop singer Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity to speak out against the Trump administration's border detention camps.

"Kids in cages! Sleeping on concrete floors with aluminum blankets! No access to simple dignities! How is this still happening???" Gomez captioned the post alongside a picture of herself.

"It's absolutely inhumane to treat anyone like this let alone children," she continued. "I can't even imagine what they are going through. We need to get this to finally stop! Don't stay silent on this human rights issue -- please call your reps 202.224.3121."

Her followers praised her for speaking out:

"🙏🏻👏 So horrible. America should feel ashamed. We know better and need to do better. Thanks Sel for addressing this!"

"Thank you for using your platform to speak out about such important things"

"It’s disgusting and needs to be stopped ASAP 😩"

"I have an idea, why don't you stop crossing the border illegally and putting your children in such conditions."

"Selena you are bringing so much more attention to this!!!!! Thank you!!!!"
