If Ivanka Trump actively engages on social media like her father, she's in for a rude awakening when she scrolls through her Instagram feed.
But hopefully, it will be the wake up call she needs.
Celebrities are protesting against the Trump Administration's border separation policy with "Dear Ivanka" posts, urging the President's daughter to speak out against the immigration policy as well as demanding for the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Comedians Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler; model Alexa Chung; and filmmaker Paola Mendoza, among other celebrities, have all participated in the campaign. But will Ivanka Trump scroll through and see the posts? We're hoping so.
The campaign to end families being torn apart at the U.S./Mexican border starts out with "Dear Ivanka."
You follow me on social media. You said family separation was a 'low' point for you. The low point is for the separated families.
The post lists harrowing statics: 572 children have not been reunited, one child has died, and there have been claims of sexual and physical abuse in the detention centers.
End these racist, inhumane and unconscionable abuses now!

Filmmaker Paola Mendoza organized the campaign with Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein of Firebrand, all of whom helped with the Women's March.
Mendoza spoke to Bustle about Ivanka Trump's silence on immigration issues.
The separation of families is a tragedy that Ivanka participated in and we will not stop shining the light of truth on her no matter how much she wants to hide from it.

The "Dear Ivanka" campaign was sparked after Ivanka Trump, who serves as a special advisor in the White House, commented that the separation policy "was a low point," during Axios's "Conversation on Workforce Development" forum on August 2.
Mendoza criticized the special advisor for referring to the immigration crisis in the past tense and called her out on being just as "complicit" as the President.
