In an interview with Essence at the Black Women in Music event in Hollywood

I personally, as a Black Iranian, do not support Trump or the administration partly because his policy changes deeply affect me and my family and some of the people I know around me. I know if I’m affected, there are people who are affected ten times worse than I am. I’ve heard stories of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids happening. It’s just such a scary time especially coming from the dream that was the Obama administration. Because whether you agreed with his polices or not, there was such decorum.

On her Instagram, after the ICE arrested hundreds in Mississippi raids targeting immigrant workers

Kids should be worried about losing teeth. Kids should be worried about going into the next grade at school. Kids should be worried about conquering the monkey bars. Kids should NOT have to worry about when they will see their families again. Kids should NOT have to worry about coming home to an empty home. Kids should NOT have to worry about the discriminatory practices and policies that mean that their families will never be at home in the world. What happened in Mississippi should not be normalized/ It should be a catalyst for action.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, talking about Donald Trump's muslim ban

Being multicultural is something that I’ve always been proud of, but realizing that the same culture that I’m so proud of is the same culture that was banned by this administration is something that is always to be grappled with.
