June 28, Washington, DC—More than 600 people, mainly women, were arrested in a sit-in at a Senate office building in a protest against the government’s detention and separation of immigrant families. The protesters wrapped themselves in Mylar blankets like the ones given to children locked up in the detention (i.e., concentration) camps and chanted “Abolish ICE.” The action was led by organizers of the Women’s March. The protesters also blocked the entrance to the Department of (In)Justice and marched through the streets.
