Thursday, on Capitol Hill in D.C., roughly two thousand women showed up to protest President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. That included a number of Democratic politicians. At least one Senator from Seattle, Washington was arrested, processed and released on the scene. She was busted with 575 of her closest comrades who would love to take Trump out. Among them was actress Susan Sarandon as confirmed by her representative Teal Cannaday. “I was moved by the passionate, committed response to ending the separation of families seeking asylum and the incarceration of children,” Sarandon’s statement read. “This is a moral, not political question and I’m proud to have stood with the hundreds of women to say that we do not accept this. Unite families and abolish ICE.” Not so much. It is a Marxist question, not a moral one.
The protest culminated in a sit-in at the Hart Senate Office building, during which many of the protesters wrapped themselves in foil blankets, reminiscent of the silver Mylar blankets migrant children have been seen with in photos taken from detention centers. Three hours after Sarandon’s announcement that she had been arrested, she praised the protest, writing, “Powerful, beautiful action with hundreds of women saying we demand the reunification of families separated by immoral ICE policy. This is what Democracy looks like. #WomenDisobey.” There were chants of “What do we want? Free families!” and “This is what democracy looks like!”
This is the hot, new talking point for the left. They want ICE abolished and the borders wide open. It’s not really about reuniting children with their parents at all. In fact, that has already been done. It’s a faux issue. Thousands of leftist women marched through the capital and then parked themselves in the Senate office building in the atrium. They called it a “mass civil disobedience” act to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policy. The ones that squeezed into the atrium were arrested for blocking access and illegally crowding the space. In my book, they should have been hit with much more serious charges. According to the United States Capitol Police, approximately 575 protesters were charged with “unlawfully demonstrating.” Police said they were all processed on the scene and then released because there were far too many to actually throw in jail.
Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey

Susan Sarandon is now 71. She’s reliving her youthful hippy days and as a devout follower of Bernie Sanders, she’s going for commie gold here. She shared the news via Twitter Thursday, saying: “Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting” with the hashtag #WomenDisobey. Yeah, breaking the rule of law is always sound advice, not. Sarandon also tweeted out her thoughts on the issue and protest, as well as images from the sit-in, including calls-to-action. “Abolishing ICE & family separations/detention is bigger than either of us. If ur in D.C., please come out & march,” she tweeted. The march was organized by the Women’s March and the Center for Popular Democracy.
Sarandon has been very vocal in her criticism of Trump in the past, but she says that she is optimistic about America’s capacity to create a real change now that people are “awake and scared.” Fear is a such a potent weapon for the left. “I’m actually optimistic because I think we’re seeing an amazing revolution happening,” she explained in 2017. “Not by the people that claim to be political but by Americans, and I have great faith in America. You’re seeing more people running that have never run.” “If you’re acting and you’re paying attention — you have to constantly be calling your representatives,” she added. “And ultimately it could make a difference.” If you’ll remember, Sarandon can’t stand Hillary Clinton, but she loves Bernie Sanders. That tells you all you need to know right there.

A major protest is taking place today in Washington, D.C., with sister rallies across the country. Hundreds of thousands will take part in a fake cause meant to push a Marxist political agenda and Susan Sarandon will be in the thick of it. Sarandon also supported the Women’s March on Washington in January 2017. Earlier this month, she marched to end g*n violence in New York as well and in March she joined Cher at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington in support of tighter g*n control. She’s fully embracing her inner socialist in her twilight years.
More than 700 events are planned today worldwide against Trump’s “zero-tolerance” approach towards immigration. Thousands of people arrived early today at Lafayette Park outside the White House in preparation for what is expected to be one of the biggest protests the country has seen against President Trump’s immigration policies, with rallies planned across all 50 states. “Throw him out,” protesters chanted as they prepared to march in the nation’s capital. It’s called the “Families Belong Together” protest. As usual, the left is calling Trump Hitler and is calling ICE facilities black sites or concentration camps. They are calling for the total abolishment of ICE during all of this and want Trump removed from office. It’s not going to happen under President Trump, thank goodness.
