George and Amal Clooney Donate $100,000 to Help Migrant Children Separated from Families

George and Amal Clooney are weighing in on the migrant children crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border — and doing their part to help the separated families.

One year after welcoming twins Ella and Alexander, the couple reflected on how their son and daughter will react when they learn about how children were taken from their parents who are caught illegally crossing the border.

“At some point in the future our children will ask us: ‘Is it true, did our country really take babies from their parents and put them in detention centers?’ And when we answer yes, they’ll ask us what we did about it. What we said. Where we stood,” the Clooneys said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “We can’t change this administration’s policy but we can help defend the victims of it.”

They added, “Today, the Clooney Foundation for Justice will donate $ 100,000 to the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.”

The Clooney Foundation has also sponsored the resettlement of Syrian and Yazidi refugees in the U.S.

The Young Center’s Executive Director, Maria Woltjen, thanked the couple for their support during this “vital” time.

“This Administration’s policy disregards international law and basic principles of human decency. To treat children in such a cruel manner not only violates their legal rights but also their basic needs,” she said in a statement. “We are doing everything we can to advocate on behalf of the thousands of children who are separated and alone, and we are grateful for the generous support of George and Amal Clooney and the Clooney Foundation for Justice — it could not be more vital at this time.”

The Clooneys join a number of other stars who have blasted the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, which prosecutes undocumented immigrants who cross the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Since implementing the policy, more than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents since April, according to the Associated Press.

After House Speaker Paul Ryan shared a Father’s Day post on Twitter talking about how his life changed when he became a dad, John Legend shot back, “Seriously, f— you. Reunite the families at the border and we can talk about father’s day.”

The tweet came days after Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, announced they were making a $ 288K donation to the ACLU on President Trump’s birthday to draw attention to the “immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration.”

Kathy Griffin, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Reese Witherspoon, Ellen DeGeneres and more celebrities also spoke out against the current conditions.

In her first public commentary about President Trump and his administration, former First Lady Laura Bush wrote an opinion piece for the Washington Post that was published on Father’s Day and criticized the immigration policies.

“I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” Mrs. Bush wrote.

In another surprising move, current First Lady Melania Trump released a statement about her husband’s controversial immigration policy.

“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families,” her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, told PEOPLE.

Grisham added that her boss is calling on Democrats and Republicans to fix the nation’s immigration crisis.

“ hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,” Grisham said, adding that Mrs. Trump “believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”

George Clooney Takes Tequila Shot for His 57th Birthday! Inside How He and Amal Are Celebrating

Happy birthday, George Clooney!

The actor, who turns 57 on Sunday, celebrated the milestone by doing a shot of Casamigos tequila with his longtime pal and business partner Rande Gerber — and PEOPLE has the exclusive video above. 

As the Casamigos team cheers for the guys in the background, Clooney and Gerber, 56, raise a Casamigos board featuring fastened shot glasses. Clooney’s face says it all, as he goes from processing the tequila to smiling before jokingly falling backwards, making everyone at the celebration laugh and clap.

Clooney has been in Italy for several weeks working on pre-production for his Hulu Catch-22 series, which is scheduled to begin shooting in nearby Sardinia later this month. His father-in-law, Ramzi Alamuddin, has been celebrating his own 80th birthday with friends and family at the Clooneys’ Lake Como residence. 

The actor and his wife are slated to be back in New York City for the glamorous Met Gala on Monday, where Amal is co-hosting. 

This time last year, the Clooneys were preparing to welcome their twins, Ella and Alexander, who will celebrate their first birthdays next month. “ how much I thought I had in control and how little control I actually have,” Clooney told PEOPLE of raising the twins last fall. “I have none! I think everybody quickly realizes that.”

He opened up about how becoming a dad has changed his life in September, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “The first thing you think is, ‘I hope I don’t screw this up.’ I mean, look, we are all responsible for things in life, and Amal and I are responsible for each other in a way — we look out for one another and we care about one another. But you are really responsible for two kids.”

He added, “I want them to be happy. I want them to have a sense of humor. I want them to be interested in things. I want them to be compassionate about other people’s plights. Because that’s the thing, you know? You have to have some sort of empathy.”

RELATED: George & Amal Clooney Show Support for Gun Violence Prevention at D.C. March For Our Lives Event

The actor has also given more insight recently into the beginnings of his relationship with Amal, 40, whom he married in 2014. “Of course she was beautiful,” he told Vogue in April. “But I also thought she was fascinating, and I thought she was brilliant. Her life was incredibly exciting — the clients she was taking on and the superhuman work that she was doing. I was taken with her from the moment I saw her.”

He previously opened up about meeting Amal at his Lake Como home during an appearance on David Letterman’s Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Clooney said he hadn’t heard of Amal, but his agent knew all about her and made sure the Up in the Air star wasn’t going to waste this opportunity. “I got a call from my agent who said, ‘I met this woman who is coming to your house, who you’re going to marry,’” George told Letterman. “It really worked out that way.”

Over the past several months, the couple have been spotted stepping out for romantic dinner dates in New York City, where the international human rights attorney has been teaching at Columbia University. With Amal’s return to Columbia University as a visiting professor of law and senior fellow with the Human Rights Institute, the humanitarian lawyer and the actor have been spending more time on the East Coast.

As for his professional life, Clooney, who hasn’t starred in a film since 2016’s Money Monster, admitted earlier this year that acting is no longer a priority for him. “Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I’m 56. I’m not the guy that gets the girl anymore,” he told The Sunday Times, before adding that at least he “shouldn’t be the guy that gets the girl.”

The father of two continued, “But, look, if somebody’s got Paul Newman in The Verdict, I’d jump. But there aren’t that many like that. Acting used to be how I paid the rent, but I sold a tequila company for a billion f— dollars. I don’t need money.”

In June, Clooney confirmed that he and his two business partners — Gerber and real estate mogul Mike Meldeman — sold their Tequila company, Casamigos, for $ 1 billion.

Clooney has also been more outspoken politically this year, often criticizing President Donald Trump. But he told The Sunday Times in the same interview that he does not plan on running for office. “So many people since Trump was elected have really been pushing on me to get more involved in actual politics, specifically at the highest office,” he said, before admitting, “I don’t have political aspirations.”

Meghan Markle, Amal Clooney and Cindy Crawford’s Go-To Shoe Designer Dropped Prices 50 Percent

This is a Black Friday sale that isn’t going away: Sarah Flint, the footwear designer who counts Meghan Markle, Amal Clooney and Cindy Crawford as fans, is slashing prices by 50 percent — and keeping them there. 

The designer cultivated her celebrity following with stylish (and comfortable!) Italian-made shoes that can transition from day to night. Prices ranged from $ 500 to $ 1,200 when she launched the brand, but thanks to a new direction — and an investment from Cindy Crawford herself — Flint is slashing prices to $ 200 to $ 650 and taking the experience away from retailers and directly to consumers on her site sarahflint.com

“Cindy has been a fan of the brand since the beginning and has worn my shoes countless times,” Flint tells PeopleStyle. “As I got to know her, her support of the product and desire be an integral part of the brand really spoke to how much she believed in the product, and in our new business model. There’s no bigger honor than having a customer, and now investor, like Cindy Crawford believe in you.” 

That means her most celeb-adored styles are now cheaper, such as the Lana flat, which is a favorite of Meghan Markle and Crawford. “It’s great for traveling,” Crawford tells PeopleStyle. “I love this shoe because it’s super comfortable yet I feel pulled together.” It’s now available for $ 365, originally it was $ 625. 

Markle’s go-to flat, Flint’s Grear style, is also now slashed, available for $ 245, as opposed to its $ 525 original. 

The Emma pump, which Amal Clooney and Meghan Markle own in multiple colors is also at a new price: $ 345, as opposed to its original, $ 595. “It’s a classic with the focus on subtle details that enhance the way a women looks in the shoe, without sacrificing fit and wearability,” Flint says of why it’s so popular. 

Crawford predicts two more will rise in popularity soon, the Marina boot in olive, which is now $ 595, and the Andrea slide in gold, which is now $ 250. Perhaps, we even may see Crawford’s lookalike daughter Kaia in the latter soon enough. “I don’t want to ruin one of  her Christmas gift ideas, but she might just find a pair of the Andrea slides in gold under out tree,” says Crawford.

The 39-year-old human rights lawyer stepped out with Georgefor a dinner date at Ristorante Da Ivo in Venice, Italy — turning heads before being whisked away by a water taxi in a stunning strapless blue Missoni gown.

Hugging Amal’s fabulous figure was a sparkly dress — from the designer’s Resort 2018 collection — which included a sweetheart neckline, sheer corset bodice, and a fringe detailed skirt. Amal accessorized the $ 3,995 frock with dangling earrings, copper-colored shoes and a bold red lip.

George, 56, didn’t look too bad himself, in a charcoal suit and blue button-down shirt.

The duo, who arrived in Venice on Thursday, when they dined with pal Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barros. Damon, 46, is starring in Suburbicon,which tackles racism in a suburban community in 1959.

Venice is a sentimental place for the Clooneys, having been the place where they tied the knot in 2014. Tilbury was there then too, doing Amal’s makeup for her big day.

Saturday’s premiere will mark the first public event for the new parents since they welcomed twins Ella and Alexander in early June in London. The family of four spent much of the summer at their villa on Lake Como, which is a four-hour drive west from Venice.

“Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit,” George told the Associated Press of life as a dad. “I really didn’t think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don’t make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride.”

George and Amal Clooney’s summer vacation in Italy has all the familiar hallmarks of their go-to July getaways: sun-kissed downtime at their villa on Lake Como and laughter-filled pasta dinners with friends.

This time, however, there are two newcomers on the la dolce vita scene: Ella and Alexander, the couple’s 7-week-old twins. And the new parents are relishing every moment.

“George and Amal are very hands-on,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “The babies keep them very busy, but they both seem to love being parents.”

“The weather has been fantastic — sunny and warm every day,” the source adds. “George and Amal are enjoying the summer with their babies. Both seem very happy.”

While they spend most of their time at the villa with the twins, who were born in London on June 6, and visiting pals — including George’s longtime friend, producer Ben Weiss — the Clooneys have enjoyed a few low-key date nights.

The two “sat close and cuddled” over a candlelit dinner on July 18 at the Grill in the Villa d’Este Hotel, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

“George had his arm around Amal for most of the dinner,” the onlooker adds. “They were both in the best mood.”

Of course, there’s no late-night carousing these days. “On the rare occasion they leave to have dinner, they don’t stay out late,” says a source. “It’s like they enjoy having a night out with friends, but the babies are still the main priority.”

No, Amal Clooney Wasn’t ‘Showing Off Her Baby Bump’ At The UN

International human rights lawyer Amal Clooney gave an emotional speech Thursday in New York City urging the United Nations to pursue an investigation into crimes committed by the self-titled Islamic State, including genocide, rape and kidnapping.

However, some publications chose to focus on her “baby bump,” instead.  

Clooney, who is expecting twins with husband George Clooney, made headlines in multiple publications not for the urgent and harrowing situation involving the militant group or the young Yazidi victim she is representing, but rather for how her pregnant figure looked in a yellow dress.

Thankfully, people on Twitter were around to call them out.

Time magazine was the subject of much of the criticism for its tweet: “Amal Clooney shows off her baby bump at the United Nations.” The tweet linked to a People story featured on Time’s millennial-focused Motto site, which was updated early Friday to include details beyond her fashion choice.

George Clooney On His Proposal To Amal Alamuddin: ‘I Literally Dropped It On Her’

For a man who was once thought to be an eternal bachelor, it sure didn’t take George Clooney long to realize he wanted to be with Amal Alamuddin for life.

“It happened pretty quickly,” the actor told “CBS This Morning’s” Charlie Rose on Tuesday. “I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Amal. But, you know, I have to say, when I asked her…we had never talked about it…there wasn’t, like, ‘Hey, maybe we should get married.’ I literally I dropped it on her.”

Clooney said he proposed to the human rights attorney at home with his Aunt Rosemary’s records playing in the background.

“Finally, I just said, ‘Listen.’ You know, I’m 53, at the time, or 52, I think, at the time, and I said, ‘You know, I’ve been on my knee now for about 28 minutes,” he said. “So I gotta get an answer out of this, ’cause I’m gonna throw a hip out.”

The pair, who first met in Italy, tied the knot in Venice in September 2014.

“I have someone who I can talk to about anything and someone who I care more about than I’ve cared about anybody,” Clooney said of his wife. “So it’s really nice.”

This isn’t the first time the “Tomorrowland” actor has gushed about Alamuddin to the press. At a premiere for the movie recently, he told People magazine that getting married has changed his outlook on the future.

“All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future –- my personal future -– was going to be.” He continued, “I wasn’t always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. But now I am.”

Amal Clooney’s Got a Hippie-Chic Date Night Look For You to Try

How happy are you that we got to meet Amal Clooney this year? She had pretty fantastic style when she was Miss Alamuddin and it’s just gotten better from there, hardly a surprise when her first outing as Mrs. Clooney was in this couture creation. The style train shows no signs of stopping, either, and her latest date night with hubby George was in an outfit so much cooler than your standard LBD.

amal-clooney-fringed-jacket-date-night-2014

She’s channeling so much Nicole Richie boho-chic here, almost as if she’d read my interview with Nic when she suggested every girl try a floaty bed jacket. Amal’s was fringed, a majorly trending accent, and has those richly colored designs on them that almost appear to be a burnt-out velvet. To make the statement topper work, she kept her basics really simple: jeans and a black tank. And because it is date night, she pulled on a pair of sexy cut-out heels.

What’s your date night dressing M.O.? In the winter I like jeans, high boots, and a top with one extra button undone.

George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin Are Engaged (REPORT)

It looks like Hollywood’s serial bachelor is a bachelor no more. George Clooney is engaged to British attorney Amal Alamuddin, People confirms.

Clooney and Alamuddin were first spotted together publicly in October of last year.

“George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren’t really trying to hide this, it doesn’t seem,” a source told People. “I think it’s like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever.”

Clooney reportedly proposed to the 36-year-old beauty after six months of dating and news of the engagement started to make rounds after she was spotted wearing an engagement ring while out to dinner with the couple’s friends, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber.

Clooney was previously married to Talia Balsam and has since had notable relationships with Sarah Larson, Elisabetta Canalis and Stacy Keibler.
