Protests against the zero-tolerance policy on immigration that has resulted in children being imprisoned without their parents, going to court without an adult and families being detained have resulted in mass protests. We have reported on #OccupyICE protests that occurring across the nation, there were also mass protests in Washington, DC and around the country as part of #WomenDisobey.

In Washington, DC women-led protests shut down streets and occupied a Senate office building as Congress prepared to leave the capital for the Fourth of July recess without resolving the immigration injustice that is occurring on a daily basis.

Women shut down the street outside of the Department of Justice and marched through Washington, DC from Freedom Plaza to Capitol Hill.

They filled the floors of the Hart Senate Office Building resulting in mass arrests.
