Three hours after tweeting her arrest, Sarandon again tweeted about the protest, calling it "powerful, lovely action" and saying, "this is what Democracy looks like".

A sit-in protesting the US President's immigration policy was held in Washington D.C. on Thursday (June 28).

The protesters' demonstration was aimed at Trump's "zero-tolerance" border policy, which calls for anyone caught crossing the border to be arrested.

Women were chanting, "We care", in reference to the jacket Melania Trump wore on her trip to meet with migrant families which read "I really don't care, do u?" They were all released after being processed.

Trump Trade Representative Rebukes China, EU for Tariff Retaliations
The White House approved two weeks ago to impose tariffs worth $50 billion on China that was initially announced in April. Asked about reports that he is considering withdrawing from the WTO, Mr Trump said, he is not talking about pulling out.

Following global outcry, Trump recently backed off from separating migrant children from their parents, though the White House continues to insist that the "zero-tolerance" policy remains in place. She was previously arrested in 1999 during a protest against a police shooting of an unarmed African American teenager in NY. The march was one of several around America to protest gun violence and urge lawmakers to pass gun restrictions.

Sarandon tweeted, "Arrested. Stay strong".

Sarandon has been a controversial political figure since she suggested during the 2016 presidential race that Americans vote for a third-party candidate.

More protests are taking place across the United States today (June 30) after 2,342 children were separated from their parents in the last month.
