Celebrities Create Pro-Immigration Music Video
Celebrities are at it again, this time with a new music video titled, “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)” that is very pro-immigration.
“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda shared the track Wednesday on NBC’s “Today Show” and posted it on YouTube from his “Hamilton Mixtape” collection that uses a variety of images to push the pro-immigration agenda in the U.S., according to Variety.

Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs appears alongside rappers Knaan, Residente, Riz MC and Snow Tha Product in the six-minute long video that shows shots of immigrants working as farm laborers and in sweat shops, along with clips of people coming through parts of a torn fence.
The title was inspired from a song from the popular Broadway play, “Yorktown.”
The video directed by Tomas Whitmore and executive produced by Miranda comes on the heels of Miranda’s “Ham4all” contest that encourages people to donate $10 to an immigrants rights coalition and post videos of themselves singing “Hamilton” songs for a chance to win tickets when the show opens in Los Angeles in August.
The song comes out two days after the United States Supreme Court ruled that President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban — that prevents migration from six Muslim majority countries for 90 days and suspends the refugee program for 120 days — can stand.
