Women March Against President's Policies - And Against Obeying the Law

Protesters walked around wearing mylar blankets - similar to the blankets handed out to immigrant children who arrive with illegal alien adults and are cared for at detention centers in this country. They were processed on the scene and released.

The Associated Press reported that 575 protesters were eventually arrested after refusing to leave the building. "Free families" and "This is what democracy looks like". "It's powerful, intersectional and it is led by women".

In case you missed it, a mob of thousands descended on the Hart Senate Building Thursday afternoon and demanded Immigration and Customs Enforcement be abolished. All 50 Senators keep an office in the building, and it houses the offices of three Senate committees.




Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state tweeted Thursday that she was proud to be arrested to protest the policy that has separated families at the southern border.

The protest was organized and promoted by Women's March, the same group that mounted a massive protest effort previous year shortly after President Donald Trump took office. Trump reversed that policy last week, through protest organizers said they plan to go on with the events nationwide in a unified rebuke of the administration's treatment of immigrants.

She said in a video posted on social media that she had joined the action to protest "the inhumane and cruel "zero tolerance" policy of Donald Trump and this administration, the separation of families, the caging of children, and the imprisonment of asylum seekers".
