Capitol Police Arrest About 575 Protesters at Senate Office Building

Almost 600 people were arrested at a protest organized by Women's March in Washington, D.C. Demonstrators began marching outside of the Justice Department and a Senate building Thursday to oppose migrant family separations and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

Ms Jayapal and her groups have planned "a massive round of protests" across the country on Saturday.

Organizers gave a final count Friday, saying 630 protesters were arrested during a massive anti-Trump demonstration that took over the public area of one of the Capitol's buildings on Thursday.

"There are 400,000 people who have signed up, people who are going to be wearing white at rallies across the country". "And we are just so appreciative that over 400,000 people have signed up to be in the streets, to be in rallies in every single one of our 50 states".

Ms Jayapal has described her protest as the civil disobedience, the path of peaceful protest shown by Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King.

It began at Freedom Plaza, then the group marched to the Department of Justice, where police had surrounded the building in preparation for the protest. Among them were a Washington state congresswoman, the lawmaker said on Twitter. "And as a member of Congress, I refuse to let this president and this administration do what they are doing to children, to parents, to asylum seekers in my name".

"It's not right. It's beyond politics". And outrage has been real.

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. And so those voices, I think, are being heard.

"The president put this policy into place". That's all it takes.

Trump called a halt to the separations recently following an worldwide outcry and criticism from Democrats as well as some Republicans, but Congress has failed to resolve the crisis and it has dragged on.
