"If you can't imagine yourself in one of those boats, you have something missing. They are dying for a life worth living." - J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling, Sophia Bush, Olivia Wilde and more are expressing their support for European refugees as the migrant crisis reaches a fever pitch across the Atlantic.

Rowling chose to highlight European hypocrisy by saying English newspapers care more about animals than people: "Want the Daily Express to care that you're trying to find a safe home?" she wrote. "Be a dog."

Criticizing America's own immigration problem, Wilde wrote, "While we try to throw people out and build a wall, others are opening their homes to refugees. True humanity." 

Meanwhile, One Direction expressed its support of refugee advocate organization called Save the Children, tweeting with the hashtag "#RefugeesWelcome."
