CAPITOL CHAOS: Over 500 ICE Protesters Arrested Inside US CAPITOL

Protesters, lawmaker arrested in U.S. Senate building over immigration

"It's important for this administration to know that these policies that rip apart families -that treat people as less than human, like they're vermin- are not the way of God, they are not the law of love", said the Rev. Julie Hoplamazian, an Episcopal priest marching in Brooklyn, whose own grandparents fled to the USA during the Armenian genocide. "This is not America".

The White House intends to detain immigrant families together but might therefore hold children longer than previously allowed, according to new court documents filed by the US Justice Department.

The mass protest took place Thursday in the Hart Senate Office Building; with demonstrators calling for an end to "family separations" and demanding legislators abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

"I think it's really cruel to separate kids", she said.

Democratic senators Mazie Hirono, Tammy Duckworth, Kirsten Gillibrand and Jeff Merkley, who have been critical of Trump's immigration policies, spoke with some of the protesters.

But Saturday's protests drew people from both sides of the aisle. She said she was a registered Republican attending her first protest.

Hundreds of children remain separated from their parents in shelters throughout the US. MoveOn, CHIRLA, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, the Women's March LA Foundation and the Council on American- Islamic Relations were among the many groups participating.

Under Mr Trump's "zero tolerance" policy, the government has begun prosecuting all migrants caught entering the country without authorisation.

It's done little to quell public outrage.

England, Belgium battle for top spot after Germany World Cup shock
Now, we seem to be faced with a similar dilemma with teams that play later can engineer their performance to chart their course. This will be the third meeting between England and Belgium at the World Cup , with England so far unbeaten in their encounters.

Almost 600 activists, protesting Donald Trump's "zero-tolerance" policy against illegal immigrants, have been arrested after staging an occupy sit-in at the Hart Senate Office building in the nation's capital.

"(The) family separation crisis is not over.

Following a national and worldwide outcry over the chaotic splitting up of families that left parents in the dark about what happened to their children, President Donald Trump reversed course. No official count is in for the protest, but thousands of people could be seen gathering outside the convention center beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Jose Flores, a 34-year-old protester in Washington, posted a picture of his daughter on Instagram, flanked by signs supporting immigrants.

More than 700 demonstrations were planned in all 50 states. "He passed away in 2000 a homeowner, business owner and citizen. And to teach my daughter of the same sacrifice".

A federal judge has ordered families be reunited and the administration asked the military to house immigrant families, leading the Pentagon to mull the construction of soft-sided camp facilities.

In Los Angeles, Angelica Salas said she has been marching to fix the immigration system for almost two decades.

"It makes it very clear that to us, and to everyone. family separation is not something that we're going to stand for as a Boston community", said Anwar Omeish, one of the organizers of the march.
