Yesterday, on Captiol Hill, Congresswomen and Women’s March participants protested President Trump’s immigration policy.
And congresswoman, Rep Pramila Jayapal (WA-D) was arrested last night inside the Hart Senate Building in D.C. Fox News reports, “the protesters could have demonstrated outside but were arrested for being inside.”(VIDEO BELOW.)
Rep Jayapal tweets, “I was just arrested with 500+ women and
@WomensMarch to say @RealDonaldTrump’s cruel zero-tolerance policy will not continue. Not in our country. Not in our name. June 30 we’re putting ourselves in the street again. Join us. http://Familiesbelongtogether.org “

ABC reports, “Sen. Tammy Duckworth was spotted in her wheelchair with her daughter in her lap. [Additionally,] Democratic Sens. Ed Markey of Massachusetts, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut visited the protesters to support their efforts.”
Furthermore, the Senators listed above seem to keep questionable company as Linda Sarsour and Women’s March organizer attended. It is not confirmed that she was one of the 575 arrested for “unlawfully demonstrating.” (VIDEO BELOW.)

One of ICE’s biggest jobs is to go after human traffickers. It is unclear why a woman’s group would want to abolish ICE since it is known for STOPPING HUMAN TRAFFICKERS. (MORE BELOW.)
Furthermore, the group was speaking out against President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. The “zero tolerance” policy phrase was originally coined in the public school system and defined as “a strict enforcement of regulations and bans against undesirable behaviors or possession of items.”
What do you think of a woman’s group, basically, telling children they don’t have to follow the rules?
Additionally, the group were wearing foil blankets. The same foil blankets in the 2014 photos the children were wearing in cages under Obama’s watch.

Unfortunately, the unruly protesters must have missed Obama’s former Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson on Fox News Sunday. Chris Wallace asks Jeh about the Obama administration separating children at the border in 2014.
Jeh Johnson replies, “Well, Chris, without a doubt the images and the reality from 2014 just like 2018 are not pretty.” Johnson continues, “We believed it was necessary at the time. I still believe it is necessary to name a certain capability for families. We can’t have catch and release.”
