Ferrera is an immigrant, thus the new administration strikes a nerve in her personal life. To the hundreds of thousands of marchers, she cried, “The president is not America, his cabinet is not America. Congress is not America. We are America. And we are here to stay.” Marches are expected to bring out millions of women across the world against the incoming administration.
