Alyssa Milano said Thursday while she was “fervently” against the White House policy that brought the migrant kids to New York City, she wanted to offer her “home and my heart” to them.

“Based on New York City news reports detailing a covert, dark-of-night transport of children it appears your organization has stepped up to temporarily care for these poor souls,”  the 45-year-old actress wrote to a center in Harlem where kids taken from their parents who illegally crossed the border were sent, according to the New York Post.

“I, along with others–while fervently against the White House policy that put these children in your care– acknowledge your efforts,” she added. “With this, I write to offer my assistance. Like many people touched by this tragedy, I have thought about ways I can help.”

“As a mother, I know that children need to be reunited with their parents in the United States more than anything,” she continued. “I will register with the appropriate authorities so I can bring some of these children into my home and foster them during this time of need.”

“Afterwards, I will help ensure they get the help they need to fight their cases, stay, and win,” the “Charmed Star” shared. “I am sure this is something many other Americans would consider a moral and patriotic duty, as well. Every passing day traumatizes these children further, perhaps to the point of irreparable damage. These children need compassion, stability and love more than ever. Mi casa es la casa de ellos — My home is their home.”
