On Thursday, Capitol Police arrested almost 600 people as they demonstrated inside a Senate office building. Among them was Washington state congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (main), the lawmaker said on Twitter.

The protest was organized and promoted by Women's March, the same group that mounted a massive protest effort previous year shortly after President Donald Trump took office.

The protesters chanted "Abolish ICE" and "We care" - a jab at Melania Trump for wearing a jacket with the words "I really don't care, do u?" painted on its back as she visited one of the immigrant detention centers.

The protesters were women who oppose the president and, in particular, his calls for a stricter immigration policy.

630 women sat on the floor of the building's atrium in protest of the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy that has separated families and has caused mass incarceration at the southern border.
