Congressmember Pramila Jayapal was arrested Thursday at a demonstration in Washington D.C., protesting the Trump administration's controversial immigration policies.

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.

Linda Sarsour, a co-founder of the Women's March, said she hoped the protests, apart from sending a message to the administration and Congress, would mobilize people to vote in the midterms.

Trump's critics have blasted the executive order he signed allowing children to stay with their detained parents, saying incarceration of an entire family is also wrong.

Their three main demands from the government: abolish the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency, end the practice of detention centers and the zero tolerance policy.
