Women March Against President's Policies - And Against Obeying the Law

Organizers expect about 50,000 to attend the DC event scheduled for 11 a.m. on Lafayette Square in front of the White House and surrounding streets.

The policy has led to thousands of children being separated from their families at the U.S. -Mexico border and inspired bipartisan criticism.

Dozens of women sat in the atrium of the building and stood in the surrounding floors overlooking it, many wearing the emergency "space" blankets that migrants often use in detention centers.

A main event in Washington, D.C.is expected to draw tens of thousands of marchers, two days after thousands of women marched to Capitol Hill and almost 600-including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.)-were arrested for demonstrating in the Hart Senate Office Building.

The demonstrators were taken into custody by Capitol Police.

Protesters chant slogans outside a Federal court during a demonstration calling for the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, and demand changes in USA immigration policies, June 29, 2018, in NY.

"There are people who have all kinds of other grievances or gripes with the Trump administration and they're quite happy to use this one as the most productive and salient for the moment", he said. "We have a situation where the Trump administration seems to be aiming to detain families", said Karthik Ganapathy, a MoveOn.org spokesman.

But Trump on Saturday said "it will never happen" and accused Democrats of wanting to abolish "all police" - something no known Democrat has called for. Her white shirt read "Mad as Hell" and she held a handmade sign reading "For the least among us".

This sparked an excitement for the device that it would severely cut down the time taken to get the latest version of Android to the device.

A June 18 CBS News poll showed 67 percent of Americans found separating undocumented immigrant children and parents at the border "unacceptable". "There is just nothing worse to me".

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

The Justice Department said in a separate filing on Friday in Los Angeles that the injunction by the judge in San Diego requires it to reunite children with their families in detention facilities and should make it exempt from the 1997 settlement requirement that the children are either released to relatives or sent to facilities that are state-licensed to care for dependent children. "And reunify the children with their parents", according to organizers.

But the "zero tolerance" policy remains in place, which means families will be detained together - something critics say can have "significant adverse effects on a child's development and psychosocial well-being, which ultimately results in the loss of childhood".

"To finally have people on board wanting to take action, marching, taking to the streets, it's been motivating for us as advocates because we have to keep going", Rivas said. He also said his colleagues want to fix "this broken immigration policy". That move has also sparked an outcry from women's and children's advocates who say children don't belong in jail. "There's nothing like a wounded animal", she said.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) was arrested along with about 575 others.

"The whole political atmosphere is an issue for me", he said.
