Susan Sarandon, one of the most experienced actresses in Hollywood, was arrested following a protest against Donald Trump's immigration policy.


The protest took place on Thursday, June 28, 2018, in Washington D.C. and it was organized by the Women's March, as well as the Center for Popular Democracy.

The 71-year-old joined hundreds of women at the gathering to demand that all migrant families separated by Trump's 'zero tolerance' policy be reunited, and shared her arrest with her fans and followers on Twitter.

During the protest, which ended with Sarandon sitting down with her fellow protesters at the Hart Senate Office building, the actress wrapped herself with foil in order to represent the silver blankets used by children at the detention centers.

Throughout the day, Sarandon took to her Twitter page to share several posts encouraging others to join the protest in order to prevent immigrant families from being torn apart.

She was eventually arrested after the intervention of a couple of police officers, but that didn't stop the actress from showing the world that the strong arm of the law couldn't keep her from expressing her opinions and concerns.


"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."

So far, the U.S President's 'zero-tolerance' policy has separated over 2300 children from their families at the border and last week, following a wave of protests and pressure, Trump agreed to sign an executive order to reverse the previous measure.

During an interview with People, Sarandon revealed that she was hopeful regarding a revolution created not by politicians but by Americans, who, much like her, are jumping into action.
