Over 500 protesters -including one Democratic lawmaker- were arrested inside the US Capitol this week in protest of the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration along the US-Mexico border.

The mass protest took place Thursday in the Hart Senate Office Building; with demonstrators calling for an end to “family separations” and demanding legislators abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

The United States Capitol Police confirmed that 575 people -mostly women- were arrested on the premises, including Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal.

“People across my state of New York, all across the country are furious with this administration’s policy to separate children from their parents,” Sen. Gillibrand said, adding the protests were an “amazing” act of defiance against the Trump administration.
