Thousands Of Women In D.C. Protest Trump's Migrant Family Separations

Protesters arrested during #WomenDisobey demonstration at Senate office building

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) was arrested at a rally to protest the conditions migrant families and children are being kept in under President Donald Trump's immigration policy.

Women's March, a movement that began when U.S. President Donald Trump was inaugurated in 2017, then spread internationally, has called on women to risk arrest at Thursday's protest. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "Free families" and "This is what democracy looks like". Elizabeth Warren of MA joined in solidarity with the protesters. At one point, Merkley donned a foil sheet as he gave a TV interview.

She said she had been arrested at demonstrations three or four times since she became politically active following Trump's election.

"I was just arrested with 500+ women and @WomensMarch to say @RealDonaldTrump's cruel zero-tolerance policy will not continue". Jayapal posted to Twitter not long after her arrest and called on people to put themselves on the line as well during Saturday's nationwide #FamiliesBelongTogether marches.

She said that the last two weeks have been really consumed by this issue.

Entering the final matchday, both teams are +1, so whichever team's margin of victory is higher would win Group B. Portugal and Spain are the two best teams in the world but we presented our team at the World Cup very well.

United States Capitol Police charged almost 575 individuals with "unlawfully demonstrating", according to a Capitol Police statement Thursday. So did the Democrats Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Edward Markey of MA.

Police say those who were arrested were processed on the scene and released. Following Trump's signing of an executive order last week-only after the policy sparked global outrage-Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents will no longer separate families.

Hundreds of people gathered at a rally outside a federal courthouse in Brownsville, Texas, near the US-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley.

They wore shirts with slogans calling for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency responsible for deportations, as well as stopping cybercrime, counterfeit merchandise, criminal gangs and child sex predators.
