  • Protesters arrested during #WomenDisobey demonstration at Senate office building

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. "This barrage of injustices has inspired us to say, 'No more". Kamala Harris, spoke.Protesters chanted slogans on their way to the Capitol, including, "No hate, no fear". "But we won't allow it to continue".

The women were arrested and charged with unlawfully demonstrating in the Senate office atrium, said Eva Malecki, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Capitol Police.

And they understand that this is far beyond politics.

It took police about 90 minutes to arrest them and end the demonstration.

Jayapal says she and other protesters were "here to fight for our families to be free, to fight for the ability of our kids to be with their parents - not in cages, not in prison, but able to live their lives free, safe and secure". Gillibrand held a sign that read: "End Detentions Now".

Demonstrators in opposition to the immigration policies of the Trump administration rally at the Hart Senate office building.

The "Families Belong Together" protests will include at least 16 in New Jersey, according to MoveOn.org, the liberal political action group that is one of dozens organizing the rallies.

As the marchers passed the Trump International Hotel, which is run by the president's company, they chanted, "Shame!"

The Women's March demonstration is part of a wave of actions against Trump, whose administration began seeking in May to prosecute all adults who cross the border without authorization. "To put myself in the camp of people who believe that the United States of America is better". 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.

"When we were advocating to keep families together and end family separations, we were not advocating for family incarceration", said Linda Sarsour, one of the leaders of the Women's March.

She later tweeted out another video after her arrest.

Ana Maria Archila, executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy, said calling for the disbandment of ICE "would have seemed absurd even a few months ago". "This is not a bad enough crime to lock them up and take their children away".

Also Saturday, several Broadway stars are participating in a benefit concert to support efforts to reunite families who were separated at the border with Mexico. Organizers of the D.C. rally also plan protests in 351 congressional districts around the country.
