'We Care': Over 600 Women Facing Arrest at Senate

Dem congresswoman among anti-Trump protesters arrested inside Capitol office building

The group took over the center of the Hart Senate office building to protest the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy and family separations at the U.S. -Mexico border, according to Jayapal.

House Democrat Pramila Jayapal was among those arrested as she called for others to join the demonstrations.

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.

Instead, several hundred people, mostly women, took to Capitol Hill on Thursday to protest President Donald Trump's immigration policies, as ABC News and other outlets reported.

The women and a few men chanted "Abolish ICE" and donned foil blankets like those given to child detainees in photos of Texas border processing facilities recently released by Customs and Border Protection.

Amid opt out, Paul George has grown ‘comfortable’ in OKC
It was reported that last summer George told the Pacers that he planned to leave the franchise, preferring to join to Lakers . There was a report that recently came out where LeBron James' camp believes Paul George will remain in OKC for the future.

Congresswoman Jayapal tweeted a video of the protest with the caption, "Today's action is a mass protest, risking arrest, by powerful women, and I'm proud to be a part of it".

The demonstrators demanded Congress to end ICE as they condemned the "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

Daily images are still emerging of distraught immigrant children separated from parents and not yet reunited, despite an executive order last week ending the policy of summarily tearing families apart and arresting the adults after anyone is caught crossing the border illegally. Elizabeth Warren of MA joined in solidarity with the protesters.

And dozens of protesters shut down a government meeting in MI in protest against a contract with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) agency to house detainees at a local jail.

In all, Capitol police arrested at least 575 women for the misdemeanor offense of unlawfully demonstrating in the Capitol.
