In a lengthy caption, the brunette beauty wrote: ‘Last week my wonderful friend @edgarramirez25 and I visited Casa Alitas, a shelter for migrant families, and one of @savethechildren’s 35 partners along the Southern border of the US. 

‘The takeaways: 1. Edgar says it best: No one wants to leave home. Children and families are arriving to the US—Mexico border, having fled unimaginable violence and disasters in their home countries.♥️ 

‘2. Climate migration is not a problem of the future, it is happening now. Save the Children warns of multiple countries expected to descend from drought into famine next year. ♥️ 

‘3. We met with Border Patrol officers and humanitarian aid workers—they are working on different sides of the same problem. It is important to note—they have the same message: we need immigration reform. The last legislation on immigration was passed under George W. Bush. Swinging from one set of Presidential orders to the next is expensive and destabilizing. ♥️ 

‘4. With shelters like @casaalitastucson, Save the Children is fulfilling our mission to help the world’s most vulnerable children. ♥️  

Teamwork: The two also worked together to lead a story time session for the young children as they read books for them, which the 13 Going On 30 star acting them out

‘5. People are good. Along with the incredible people who welcome weary travelers to Casa Alitas, we met organizations offering legal services, doctors volunteering medical care, and we spent time with the Green Valley-Sahuarita Samaritans, who took Edgar and me to crosses marking bodies found along the migrant’s desert path—in this case a young man who had died of dehydration and, not far away, a cross honoring the recovered body of a stillborn baby. 

‘The Samaritans’ ceremony ends with ‘Presente’, acknowledging the traveler’s spirit, and our connection to them. ♥️ 

‘6. This is a thorny, politicized issue, but with babies and children at the center—it is on us to keep working together toward solutions. Thank you, Edgar, for adding your heart to our trip. And thank you to everyone in Tucson, AZ, for taking the time to tell us your stories. ♥️ ‘

She showed off her Spanish with Édgar as they conversed with some of the children at the facility and gave them snacks.

She was also seen engaging in a fun game of tag with some of the kids.

Many of the families had been let out of detention facilities run by the federal government, so they need essentials and some things that had been taken from them, like shoe laces.
