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.
The actress joined hundreds of women in the protest, which was organized by the Women’s March and the Center for Popular Democracy. They demanded for migrant families who had been separated at the border to be reunited.
Prior to her arrest, Sarandon retweeted other women who attended a sit-in protest held at the Hart Senate Office building.
Women at the protest wrapped themselves in foil blankets to mimic the silver blankets that were seen in photographs of migrant children taken at detention centers.
