Susan Sarandon was arrested on Thursday, June 28, 2018, along with almost 600 more women who took to the streets that day.

They were protesting the “Zero tolerance” policy put into action by the Trump Administration for curbing illegal immigration, which has resulted in over 2000 children being separated over the course of the previous month.

All the protestors who were arrested were processed and released the very same day.

Fans trolled Sarandon on social media by telling her to worry about problems Americans were facing, instead of worrying about illegal immigrants.

Sarandon responded on Twitter and said that she could worry about two things at one time, and then endorsed more charitable organizations.

The Thelma and Louise actress responded to many of her fans who questioned her involvement in the protest. She said that it was worth getting arrested and that she would continue protesting.

This is not the first time the actress has been arrested. She was previously taken in for partaking in a protest against the shooting of an unarmed black teenager by the cops, back in 1999.

She also promoted the Families Belong Together Nationwide rallies to be held on Saturday, June 30, 2018.

She observed that more and more Americans are actively entering politics than ever before, and urged for more women to raise their voice, promoting the hashtag #womendisobey.

President Trump signed an executive order last week which would stop the separation of kids from their families, and the families will be detained together.

This was a result of a massive public backlash against the immigration policy. However over 2300 children, including toddlers that have already been separated, are yet to be united with their parents.
