Nearly 600 women were arrested Thursday in one of several demonstrations across the country protesting the Trump administration's treatment of migrant families at the southern border. Protesters marched past the Justice Department then staged a sit-in at the Hart Senate Office Building where they chanted, 'What do we want?

Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., who said she was 'proud to have been arrested with them.'
