CHICAGO (CBS) — Some Chicago teenagers who are close to the immigration issue asked for the support of Justin Bieber for their cause today at a church in the heavily-Latino Pilsen neighborhood.
WBBM’s Mike Krauser reports five young Latino girls at Lincoln United Methodist Church on the 2200 block of South Damen sang a Justin Bieber song and asked that he personally take up their cause.
Daysha Delvalle,12, was among the girls reaching out to Bieber.
“We are here to support Justin Bieber and to ask him to support us,” said Delvalle.
Activist Emma Lozano joined the kids in asking that Justin Bieber put all of the attention he gets to good use supporting their cause.
“These are things that are happening. We know that Justin Bieber now is someone who understands I would say in the flesh what it is like to be the target of a nation’s asking for his deportations.”
They are calling on the President to put an end to all deportations.
