[Ed. – I’m not sure these people will ever understand that no one looks at what they’re doing and thinks they “care.” Legal immigrants probably mostly look at them and think, “You don’t speak for me, folks.”]
Hundreds of women staged a sit-in against family separation and detention Thursday in the Senate’s Hart Office Building. It followed a morning of protests and marching in DC from Freedom Plaza to the Department of Justice to Congress.
The Women’s March organized the act of nonviolent civil disobedience with the Center for Popular Democracy Action and CASA in Action. The protesters draped themselves in silver thermal blankets — evoking images of migrant kids in shelters — and chanted “Abolish ICE” and “We care.”
Capitol Police said approximately 575 people had been arrested during the sit-in.
