If there was any doubt, the creator of Broadway’s Hamilton is making it quite clear that he’s pro-immigration.

Lin-Manuel Miranda has released a video to complement the track “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done),” which was featured on the bestselling December 2016 Hamilton Mixtape album.

Per Rolling Stone, the tune was inspired by a lyric from Hamilton song “Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down),” and features verses by rappers K’naan, Residente, Snow Tha Product, and Riz MC (Rouge One actor Riz Ahmed).

Along with the release of the video, Miranda has announced a contest that benefits the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. The grand prize winner gets two VIP tickets to Hamilton‘s premiere in Los Angeles, two tickets to the afterparty, a meet-and-greet and photo session with Miranda himself, and roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations for two.
