Selena Gomez is south of the border, despite the strong stance she took on immigration over the weekend.

The "I Can't Get Enough" singer used her powerful platform to slam the 'inhumane' treatment of immigrate children at the border, and now it appears she was in Mexico when she shared her heartfelt post.

Gomez sizzled on the beach in a revealing red one-piece, having a total "Baywatch" moment during her cousin Priscilla DeLeon's bachelorette party in Puerto Vallarta on Saturday.

Dipping in the ocean and hamming it up with the bride to be and her best friend, Theresa Marie Mingus, Gomez seemed confident and happy on her girl's getaway.

The singer took several shots on the beach with Priscilla during her weekend celebration.

Gomez grabbed her hand to snap a gorgeous sunset pic while wearing a floral dress with high slit to capture the picture perfect moment.

This Mexico trip comes just months after she threw an epic bachelorette bash for her other BFF, Courtney Barry, in Cabo San Lucas.

Gomez did a lot more than just relax in the sand during her cousin's pre-wedding festivities.

The group of girls went out on the town and explored the local sights, which could have inspired the singer to speak out about immigration.

As The Blast reported, Gomez addressed the situation head on and urged fans to take action.

Sharing a black and white photo of herself, she tugged at the heartstrings with her powerful caption.

"Kids in cages! Sleeping on concrete floors with aluminum blankets! No access to simple dignities! How is this still happening???" she began her message.

Calling the situation "inhumane," she put herself and her family into the scary scenario.

"It’s absolutely inhumane to treat anyone like this let alone children. I can’t even imagine what they are going through," Gomez continued.

The Texas native, whose father is of Mexican descent, begged her fans not to ignore the situation any longer.

"We need to get this to finally stop!" she stated. "Don’t stay silent on this human rights issue."

Providing a number and urging her followers to call their reps, she hashtagged the message "#CloseTheCamps" and "#FamilesBelongTogether."
