"Today, the Clooney Foundation for Justice will donate $100,000 to the Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights".

Doing their part. George and Amal Clooney are stepping up to help migrant children who have been separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border.

'And when we answer yes, they'll ask us what we did about it.

Clooney and his lawyer wife Amal said that they were donating $100,000 to the Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights, an organization based at the University of Chicago that provides legal counsel to unaccompanied children. What we said. Where we stood.

Making a stand: Speaking to People magazine, they (pictured at the Royal Wedding last month) said in a joint statement: '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 the charity's Executive Director, Maria Woltjen, released her own statement following the donation, in which she thanked them for their 'generous support'.

As media and public attention to the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy, in which illegal migrants will be prosecuted in federal court, has ramped up in recent weeks, the public has learned more details about how the children are being housed in United States custody, including new reports that "tender age" shelters have been set up in Texas to accommodate migrant babies and toddlers. "This Administration's policy disregards global law and basic principles of human decency", Woltjen said.

According to its website, The Clooney Foundation for Justice was established to advance justice in courtrooms, classrooms and communities around the world.
