“Orange is the New Black” star Diane Guerrero fought back tears Saturday as she told tens of thousands of protesters about being separated from her immigrant parents at age 14.

Guerrero attended the “Families Belong Together” march in Washington, D.C., where she told the crowd about her immigrant parents being deported when she was a teenager.

The article goes on to state the following:

The actress condemned President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that led to more than 2,000 migrant children being separated from their parents. The policy, announced in April, seeks to prosecute those who illegally cross into the U.S. at the southern border.

“I would have had a much different story to tell if I had been imprisoned after being separated from my family, without a warm bed and only the cold faces of [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] agents and the crinkly feeling of a Mylar blanket,” Guerrero said.
