Selena Gomez took to her social media to decry the treatment of immigrant children at border facilities and slam their living conditions as “absolutely inhumane.”

According to Glamour.com, the singer spoke out on Sunday and encouraged her fans to do the same.

“Kids in cages! Sleeping on concrete floors with aluminum blankets! No access to simple dignities,” she wrote. “How is this still happening??? It’s absolutely inhumane to treat anyone like this let alone children. 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.”

She also added the hashtags #CloseTheCamps and #FamilesBelongTogether.

Gomez has been increasingly vocal about the issue for the last year. She previously told The Hollywood Reporter that the border situation was “extremely disheartening.”

Gomez is among numerous celebrities to criticize the situation, including Rihanna, who told The Root that concerned citizens should “put all your heads and all your voices together and be as loud as possible.”
