Video of the protest showed mostly women sitting and chanting at the Hart Building. The Trump Administration launched the so-called "zero tolerance" policy in April, which considers illegal border crossing as a criminal offence, meaning that immigrant minors will be separated from their families, reports Efe news.

Almost 600 activists, protesting Donald Trump's "zero-tolerance" policy against illegal immigrants, have been arrested after staging an occupy sit-in at the Hart Senate Office building in the nation's capital.

She added that most of the women were aware of the risk of arrest, but came anyway to vocalize their belief that ICE should be abolished. "These women understand, they're from all over the country. This is about right and wrong, and we have to stand up and we have to put ourselves on the line". Not in our name.

Hundreds of children remain separated from their parents in shelters throughout the US. She returned to the border again today for a second visit, jacket-less. They were charged with unlawfully demonstrating, a misdemeanor. The protesters were soon released.

Wearing stickers that said "Deport Trump", and "F**k Trump" shirts, the protestors chanted slogans like "No ban no wall, America is home to all".


The National Park Service is now prepared for 10 times that - 50,000 people - to rally outside the White House and march on the Department of Justice, according to a permit issued this week.

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.

"This country has finally been exposed to the brutality and inhumanity of immigration enforcement, " she said. And outrage has been real.

Organizers say they are receiving strong support from mothers who were opposed to the Trump administration's previous policy of separating children from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border. "I don't think it's just part of the "resistance" energy we've seen since the election", Morales Rocketto said. He can pick up the phone or pick up his phone and tweet at Secretary Nielsen and Jeff Sessions and tell them to reverse this policy.

Trump has halted his policy of taking children from their detained parents under public pressure, but around 2,000 of them are still being held, with many families saying they don't know how to locate them. "We are rising up to demand an end to the criminalization of immigrants".
