You saw her at the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brent Kavanaugh – and she wasn’t there to cheer him on.
She left there to campaign for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.
The day after that, she was emceeing a fundraising event for the Parkland High School shooting victims.
And this Thanksgiving, she was pledging to raise $100,000 to support the migrant caravan at the border in for “Families Belong Together.”
“Some friends and I are trying to raise $100,000 today to help some people in the fight of their lives, seeking asylum at our southern border,” she tweeted.

Though about 75 percent of the caravan that began in Honduras if reported to be comprised of single young males seeking jobs, the group places its media emphasis on the families – calling them “brave asylum seekers.”
“Families Belong Together is on the ground with the refugee caravan in Tijuana,” the pitch emphasizes. “We’re with individuals, families, and children of all backgrounds and from various countries, who are seeking safety and a better life. Many members have already begun the asylum application process and are waiting patiently to hear back about next steps. These people are fleeing persecution and violence and are legally applying for asylum at a U.S. port of entry.”
What’s the $100,000 for?
“We are coordinating with organizations on the ground who are providing resources to address the most pressing needs,” the group reports.
Brock Simmons, writing in the Gateway Pundit, points out Milano lives in Los Angeles where the homeless populace has risen 75 percent “with an estimated 55,000 sleeping on the streets or in shelters each night.”
“Who else could use this aid?” Simmons asks. “How ’bout homeless veterans. SocialSolutions.com estimates there are 564,000 homeless in the U.S., with 57,000 of them being veterans. An estimated 380,000 children under 18 have experienced homeless that’s lasted one week or longer.”
He also points out the following statistics:
43.2 percent of veterans experiencing homelessness are people of color, compared with 18.4 percent of the general veteran population.
33.1 percent of veterans experiencing homelessness are African American, compared with 12.3 percent of the general veteran population
3 percent of homeless veterans are Native American or Alaska Native and 4.8 percent are multiracial, compared with 0.7 percent and 2.1 percent of the general veteran population.
The 45-year-old former child actress-turned activist has appeared in “Who’s the Boss?,” “Melrose Place,” “Charmed,” “My Name is Earl,” “Mistresses,” and the Netflix series “Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later.”
But in the 1980s, Milano’s political activism began when she contacted Ryan White, a schoolboy ostracized for having AIDS. She attended a party for him where she made friendship bracelets and later appeared on “The Phil Donahue Show,” where Milano kissed White, in order to show that she could not catch the disease through casual contact with him.
In 2007, she appeared in a 2007 advertisement for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals advocating vegetarianism, in a dress made entirely of plant materials.
In 2015, Milano endorsed Bernie Sanders for president. She backed Hillary Clinton in 2016.
In 2017, Milano posted the message which relaunched what is known as the #MeToo movement, which was started in 2006 by Tarana Burke.
She was a prominent speaker at the 2018 Women’s March, but refused to participate in 2019, citing the failure of leaders Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour to condemn the homophobia, antisemitism, and transphobia of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
