They were processed and being released, according to Capitol Police, a D.C. agency. Jayapal was issued a $50 fine for "crowding, obstructing, or incommoding".

Hundreds were taken into custody Thursday, and charged with unlawfully protesting at a Senate building.

More than 700 direct actions are planned in cities and towns across the country on Saturday, as Americans rally against President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, the forcible separation of families, and the imprisonment of children.

Ms Jayapal, 52, was arrested along with over 500 other women at Capitol Hill on Thursday.

Thursday's march was one of several Washington demonstrations this week to rebuke Trump's immigration policies.

"I'm proud to have been arrested with them to put myself in the camp of people who believe that the United States of America is better", Ms Jayapal said in a video posted on Twitter. As they passed by the Trump International Hotel, the protesters yelled "Shame" and "Where are the children?".

"But their fans instead of celebrating minutes after the game are responsible for cleaning their sector before leaving #Respect". Senegal's fans were not the only ones winning praise on social media for their sense of social responsibility.

Hundreds of women from 47 states gathered in Freedom Plaza, robed in white and carrying signs deriding the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy.

The Women's March demonstration is part of a wave of actions against Trump, whose administration began seeking in May to prosecute all adults who cross the border without authorization. "And as a member of Congress, I refuse to let this president and this administration do what they are doing to children, to parents, to asylum seekers in my name".

The Women's March announced its plans for the last week and held training meetings in the days leading up to it. Elizabeth Warren of MA joined in solidarity with the protesters.

She added that most of the women were aware of the risk of arrest, but came anyway to vocalize their belief that ICE should be abolished. "This is not a bad enough crime to lock them up and take their children away".

Demonstrators are also asked to bring their friends and a sign with a messages expressing support for the reunification of separated families, bearing messages like, "Keep Families Together" or "Familias Unidas No Divididas".

For Ingrid Zelaya, who works in communications at the immigrant advocacy group CASA, this was not her first protest, but it was her first act of civil disobedience.
