In September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ended the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, putting thousands of legally-working undocumented immigrants at risk of deportation. Now, as immigration activists push for Congress to pass a clean Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act to protect immigrants from deportation and to give them a path to citizenship, Britney Spears wants to enlist your help.

On Friday night, Spears shared a classic full-body photo of herself wearing a black T-shirt with the statement, “We are all Dreamers.”

“Tell Congress to pass the #DreamAct,” she urged, linking to Emerson Collective, a California nonprofit encouraging immigration reform that created the shirt.

Spears’ fans flipped for the star’s support of Dreamers, the undocumented immigrants who would be affected by the legislation.

Last Wednesday, Dreamer activists rallied at Capitol Hill to protest the passing of the spending bill until it includes a version of the DREAM Act without concessions for border wall or security funding, according to Democracy Now. Without a DREAM act, 700,000 undocumented immigrants are at risk of being deported once their two-year DACA permits expire, with more than 13,000 people having already lost their DACA permits since September.

In the words of Spears herself, “You better call Congress, bitch.”
