"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", Jayapal said in a Twitter video following her arrest.

The rally was organized by the Women's March and the Center for Popular Democracy.

Before arriving at Capitol Hill, the protesters marched down Pennsylvania Avenue, pausing to chant "Shame!"

The protesters, mostly women dressed in white, sat on the Hart Senate Office Building's marbled floors and wrapped themselves in metallic silver blankets similar to those given to migrant children separated from their families by U.S. immigration officials.

According to reports, more than 500 people were arrested by the Capitol Police when they were having their sit-in protest at the Senate Hart Office building.
