Everybody knows rapper Foxy Brown as one of the rap game’s biggest names in the 90s. But it actually wasn’t long ago that she was fighting for her dad’s right to stay in the country.
Many believed Trump’s immigration policies only affected Muslims and Latine people, but that has never been the case.
