"Honestly I feel like we are in a nightmare right now," she writes.

After President Donald Trump's executive action on immigration and refugees, Jennifer Lopez took to social media to stand in solidarity with immigrants around the country with a post she captioned, "We are all immigrants."

The multifaceted artist added: "Honestly, I feel like we are in a nightmare right now! In a country founded by immigrants how did immigrant become a bad word!!!"

J.Lo, who was a supporter of Hillary Clinton's during the 2016 presidential election, joins a handful of musicians who have spoken out in protest of Trump's order banning refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. -- part of which was then blocked by a federal judge in New York.
