Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, a Democrat, sat with the protesters and was also arrested.
A wave of women took to the streets and protested in a Senate office building in the nation's capital on Thursday, to call out the Trump administration's immigrant family separations and detentions.
"These women understand, they're from all over the country. they understand that this is far beyond politics, this is about right and wrong".
Jayapal represents Washington's 7th District.
"Not in our country".

Ms Jayapal, the only Indian-American woman elected to the House of Representatives, is seeking a re-election in the mid-term elections later this year.
The Democratic senator Jeff Merkley of OR, who was one of the first to draw attention to children being held in detention camps along the border after being separated from their parents, appeared before the crowd.
About 575 people, mostly women, were charged with demonstrating unlawfully. The protesters were soon released.
"There are 400,000 people who have signed up, people who are going to be wearing white at rallies across the country".
Ms Jayapal has described her protest as the civil disobedience, the path of peaceful protest shown by Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. Soon after, protesters were lined against a wall in small groups and police confiscated their blankets and signs. "And as a member of Congress, I refuse to let this president and this administration do what they are doing to children, to parents, to asylum seekers in my name". The action lasted more than two hours.
"They can not believe this is happening".
Hundreds of marches are expected to cap several weeks of outrage over the policies that have resulted in more than 2,500 immigrant children being separated from their parents in the weeks since the federal government started prosecuting anyone who crosses the border illegally. That's all it takes. On Monday, US Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services reported that 538 kids had been reunited with their parents. "It is inhumane how these children have been treated, and the president's executive order did nothing to address it", Stephanie Hunnell and Sylvia Breitowich, organizers of a rally in Asbury Park, said in a statement.
