***John Lewis, other elected officials facing arrest over border control issues right now*** [View all]

They are protesting DT's policy of separating children from their parents at the border.

I see John Lewis in the crowd, and other faces that look familiar. Can you help me name them?

One woman has just identified herself as Ellie Smiel, President of The Feminist Majority.

Seattle's member of the House Pramila Jayapal just spoke. Then John Lewis.

It's hot and muggy and Congressman Crowley fainted.

A pastor from the United Church of Christ has just explained that they tried to get arrested on the steps of Border Control -- but when that failed, they have moved to a street in front of the White House. They WANT to get arrested.

If anyone can find a link to this live protest that's not on Facebook, please post.

act.tv Protesters — including sitting US Congresspersons John Lewis, Raúl Grijalva, Jan Schakowsky, Luis Gutiérrez, Pramila Jayapal and more — have now marched to the White House, where they are blocking a roadway and await possible arrest.




ON UPDATE: They have disbanded for today and said they are coming back tomorrow -- but tomorrow they won't announce in advance the location of the protest.
