Andrés revealed he would be attending the annual event over Twitter earlier this week.

Andrés, a frequent critic of Trump, also shared his own thoughts on the state of the union ahead of the president's address on Tuesday, calling for “longer tables, not higher walls” on Twitter.

“In Tijuana, we met people seeking nothing more than a better future for their families,” the chef wrote on Twitter, referring to efforts made by his disaster relief effort, World Central Kitchen.

"We saw that common sense solutions to immigration will lead to safer, stronger communities at home and abroad," he added.
