New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand also appeared at the demonstration, calling it “an amazing protest of the women speak to be heard.”

“The people in my state of New York, across the country are to separate angry said about this government policy, children from their parents,” Gillibrand.

After an outcry about the separation of parents and children at the border, Trump last week under an executive order signed so that the children can stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally.

At one point, protesters and police were seen fighting on the signage in the building. Capitol police were seen trying to rip down the “abolish ICE” signs from the balconies, but the protesters were always trying to go back to take them and hang them up.
