Actress Susan Sarandon was arrested on Thursday while protesting President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy in Washington, D.C.

The political activist was one of 575 female protesters arrested at a staged sit-in, which took place inside the Hart Senate Office Building, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Sarandon tweeted about her arrest. “Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey,” she tweeted Thursday. Police confirmed the arrest, according to the Independent.

Earlier in the day, Sarandon urged others to join the march, which called for the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and demanded freedom for immigrants. (RELATED: Hundreds Of Women Arrested In Senate Protesting Trump Immigration Policies)

Sarandon came under fire from Democrats after refusing to vote for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. Many blamed the actress for recommending that people instead vote for the Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

The Women’s March helped organize the demonstration. Its official account retweeted various twitter users praising the women for their actions that led to the arrests.
