Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez wants to use her platform to talk about causes that are important to her, she tells Fox News. The 34-year-old, born to Puerto Rican parents, specifically discussed immigrant rights and #MeToo.
"I am all about human rights and that’s what I stand for," Rodriguez said. "Every country has immigration rights, every country has borders – every country does what America does, but we need to be humane."
She referred to President Donald Trump’s handling of immigration issues as "devastating."
Rodriguez recently announced that she’d use her "For Your Consideration" Emmy campaign money to send an undocumented high school student to college. The unnamed student got into Princeton, she revealed.
She also spoke out in favor of #MeToo. Rodriguez said: "Now we have a voice of all the women who are rising up and saying ‘You’re not alone in this fight.’"
