U.S. Capitol Police arrested 70 people Thursday who were part of a coalition of Catholic clergy members and supporters protesting the treatment of child migrants being held in detention facilities along the southern border.

The protest, dubbed a “Catholic Day of Action for Immigrant Children,” took place in the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building. Organizers said their goal was to end the “inhumane treatment of immigrant children and to child detention by the U.S. government” by putting pressure on lawmakers.
