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? Free families!' and 'This is what democracy looks like,' among other things. About 575 people were arrested and charged with unlawfully demonstrating inside the building, including Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., who said she was 'proud to have been arrested with them.'
