Hundreds arrested at Washington protest over Trump immigration policy

The crowd was joined by a number of US Senators who oppose Trump's immigration policies, as well as other prominent people, among them as the actress Susan Sarandon. Gillibrand said, adding the protests were an "amazing" act of defiance against the Trump administration. ICE, of course, refers to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Organizers gave a final count Friday, saying 630 protesters were arrested during a massive anti-Trump demonstration that took over the public area of one of the Capitol's buildings on Thursday. In the video, she said that she was "protesting the inhumane and cruel zero tolerance policy of Donald Trump and this administration, the separation of families, the caging of children, the imprisonment of asylum seekers who just seek a better life".
