Capitol Police Arrest Nearly 600 People Including Democrat Lawmaker at Immigration Protest (VIDEO)

Nearly 600 people were arrested by the Capitol Police Thursday, including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), at an immigration protest at the Hart Senate Building.

This time the angry lefty women traded in their pussy hats for foil.

Protesters wrapped themselves in foil to imitate the foil blankets migrant children slept in at detention centers during the Obama years:

The Associated Press reported:

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) among the 575 people who were arrested at a Senate office building while protesting the Trump administration’s policy on illegal border crossings and call for the reunification of families who had been separated.

In a statement released by U.S. Capitol Police, law enforcement officials said the protesters were “unlawfully demonstrating.” They are being charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding.

Police say those who were arrested were processed on the scene and released. Individuals who want to pay their fines can do so 24 hours after their arrest.

Many protesters in the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building wore foil blankets similar to those given to migrants housed at U.S. detention facilities.

Hundreds were protesting the Hart Senate Office building, screaming “Abolish ICE!”.
