George Clooney has decided to move his wife and twins out of England, citing security concerns. The move comes after a series of random terror attacks that has left the nation rattled. It also comes after Clooney has called for more understanding of Muslim culture as Europe sees a large influx of unvetted immigrants from the Middle East.
Clooney has been highly critical of President Trump on the issue of immigration, but it appears his decision to move his family to an exclusive neighborhood in Los Angeles is hypocritical. He is no longer a fan of Muslim-dominated culture it seems, as the terror attacks in Britain have him concerned. While the “normal” people of Britain are stuck living with radicals, Clooney is taking his family and running back to Trump’s America.
The Clooneys are also two of the many outspoken critics of the Trump-led movement to ban certain migrants from entering America. George has described it as “massively stupid” and called Trump, “a xenophobic fascist.”
George has slammed the U.S., a nation founded by immigrants, for “forgetting who we are.” He explained, “You forget that these are people who didn’t just leave their country for no reason at all. These are people who left because [of] a terrible tragedy.”
“He doesn’t feel like Amal and the twins are safe living in the English countryside,” an insider told Life & Style. “He’s determined to move his family to LA, where he feels much more secure.”
Sources said Clooney amped up security once his wife Amal (née Amal Alamuddin) got pregnant:
As soon as Amal found out she was pregnant, he hired former Secret Service agents to assess all his properties and make recommendations for improvement. His mansion in Studio City [California] was deemed the most secure, and it’s within minutes of an LAPD station. He’s waited so long for this family. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe.
The insider said George had received threats in the past for his humanitarian work in the Sudan, and his wife’s work as a human rights lawyer has also made her the target of threats.
This isn’t the first time a George Clooney residence has made headlines. In July 2016, Clooney’s neighbors in the upscale Italian resort town of Lake Como were furious after their picturesque hamlet was destroyed by a barrage of refugees.
Residents complained that their once-pristine streets were littered with trash and human waste and overrun by homeless, unemployed refugees from Muslim regions in North Africa and the Middle East.
