The video, which channels young adult classic films like Mean Girls and Legally Blonde, includes a shot of Grande reading a book labeled “Immigration and Refugee Law and Policy” by Stephen Legomsky and Cristina Rodríguez, an obvious reference to the President’s efforts to strip refugees of their ability to apply for political asylum and the recent tear gas attacks by Border Patrol officers against refugee families in San Ysidro, California.

This isn’t the first time the record-breaking singer has taken a political stance against Trump. On the cursed election night in 2016, she posted “Well this is utterly terrifying” as the results came in and followed it up with “I am in tears” when he won.

She’s aligned herself with the Black Lives Matter movement and anti-gun advocates, rejecting calls from some to “stay out of politics and just sing:”

“There’s a lot of noise when you say anything about anything. But if I’m not going to say it, what’s the f*cking point of being here? Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to shut up and sing my songs. I’m also going to be a human being who cares about other human beings; to be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people” said Grande to Elle magazine earlier this year.

Her video has shattered records, hitting 10 million views in just four hours, meaning a whole lot of people saw her message. Hopefully, it will inspire some of her fans to pick up their an immigration law textbook of their own, for as climate change accelerates and triggers mass ecological migration, we’re sadly going to be needing a lot of immigration lawyers.
