Shakira is using the huge platform she has created with her music career to make a powerful political statement. 

The singer and humanitarian penned an open letter for TIME to let the whole world know where she stands on Donald Trump's hurtful immigration policies.

Shakira felt justified to chime in on the Muslim ban because of the implications it has far beyond the US.

"This is a human issue that has implications for all of us; American and non-American citizens like myself," she began.

And her first argument was so strong that she could have ended the letter right there: "Persecution against any group for religious beliefs or race is illegal and unconstitutional in the US. Period."

We don't understand how a president would not have that embedded in their brain.

But to help drive her point home, Shakira brought up the staggering 28 million innocent children that "have been uprooted by conflict" and how harmful it would be to not give them support.

"Do we show them love and acceptance? Or allow them to fend for themselves, vulnerable to guerrilla groups that will only teach them to perpetuate this cycle of violence?"

She flawlessly called out Trump and supporters for the true meaning of the ban. "We have to be vigilant about letting bigotry and hatred creep into the mainstream or be rationalized under the guise of 'protecting our people.'"

In Shakira's eyes, allowing this gross mistreatment of Muslim people to go on will only create a slippery slope that will lead to the mistreatment of other groups.

And while the activist said she could list Muslims, Latinos, African-Americans, and countless other groups who have been treated unfairly, "we shouldn’t be singling out groups and differentiating them by race, class, or religion, because according to the Constitution, all of that is irrelevant to their rights as a citizen."

"Anybody who goes to the US and chooses to raise that flag and uphold those principles is 'our people.'"

BAM!

But the singer acknowledges that for all of the negativity that is prevalent in social media, all hope isn't lost because there are plenty of people using their voice and talents for what is right.

"Let’s keep tipping the scales in favor of 'liberty and justice for all,' keep using our voices to lift up others and speak out for those whose voices have been stripped from them," she wrote.

"I applaud all of you who have spoken out against the ban — keep up the good fight and never back down. #resist"
