There are children that are completely … honestly, I cannot fathom for a second how scared our children would be if they were without us.'

Legend also spoke about immigration policy in the United States, saying it should be 'big, bold, generous, and open.' He said, 'They’re coming to give to America. They’re coming to contribute to America.'
