House Democrats try civil disobedience to protest Trump's family separation policy



Gutierrez and chair of the House Democratic Caucus Joe Crowley led their colleagues Reps. John Lewis, Pramila Jayapal, Jan Schakowsky, Al Green, Raśl Grijalva, Judy Chu, Adriano Espaillat, and Jimmy Gomez, as well as hundreds of immigration activists, in a peaceful demonstration on the steps of the US Customs and Border Protection building in Washington, DC — the headquarters of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. They sat down and wouldn’t budge.
