Logic Puts Trump Administration's Immigration Policies On Blast

Logic makes a powerful statement in new video.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Logic has taken aim at U.S. President Donald Trump and his controversial immigration policies in his hard-hitting new music video.

The hip-hop star is using the promo for his Ryan Tedder collaboration "One Day" to slam the Republican leader and his administration's former practice of separating kids from their parents for detainment after illegally entering the U.S. from the Mexican border.

The video, featuring Michael Pena, Judy Reyes, and Luis Guzman, opens with heartbreaking footage of a young Hispanic boy being torn from his mom and dad after being caught by border patrol officers.

Somewhere in Southern California, an American boy in an affluent family celebrates at a birthday party, where his parents and older brother introduce him to Nazi memorabilia.

The two young kids' lives are chronicled with contrasting scenes, as the immigrant grows up to become a doctor, while the other becomes deeply involved in the white supremacy movement.

In the promo's final chapter, both boys are shown as adults - with the American, sporting a swastika tattoo, becoming embroiled in an altercation at a bar, where he pulls a knife on a black man, but ends up stabbing himself.

As he's rushed to hospital, the camera reveals his surgeon to be the immigrant, played by Pena, who assures the patient he will be OK as he exits the operating room.

Logic also makes a statement with his appearance in the footage, in which he wears a shirt branded with the words: "F##k the Wall" - a reference to Trump's plan to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico in a bid to keep illegal immigrants out.

The video was directed by Andy Hines - the same man behind Logic's previous hard-hitting suicide prevention promo for "1-800-273-8255."
