Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon has said she was arrested while protesting in Washington, D.C.

Fox News reports:

Susan Sarandon said she was arrested Thursday after participating in a protest on Capitol Hill against the Trump administration's approach to illegal border crossings and the separation of immigrant children from their parents.

"Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting," the actress tweeted without offering any further details.
Capitol Police did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

However, Sarandon was back on Twitter a mere three hours after she said she was arrested.

"Powerful, beautiful action with hundreds of women saying we demand the reunification of families separated by immoral ICE policy. This is what Democracy looks like. #WomenDisobey," the 71-year-old tweeted.
