BREAKING: AOC Gets ARRESTED… They Finally Got Her

(Slay News) – U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) was arrested today along with other members of congress including Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Carolyn Maloney at an abortion protest.

They wore specially-made green bandanas that said ‘Won’t Back Down.’ They marched from the Capitol to the Supreme Court and within minutes were ordered to “cease and desist.” They did not and chanted, “the people, united, will never be divided.”

The US Capitol Police said at the time: “Demonstrators are starting to block First Street, NE. It is against the law to block traffic, so officers are going to give our standard three warnings before they start making arrests.”

Andrew Solender from Axios reported:

“Multiple members of Congress, including @AOC, being arrested by Capitol Police for blocking traffic outside the Supreme Court in abortion rights demonstration. The group also includes the assistant House speaker, Katherine Clark.

“Members arrested: Dean, Velasquez, Lee, Speier, Clark, Jacobs, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Andy Levin, Carolyn Maloney, Adams, Watson Coleman, Escobar, Bush, Schakowsky, Omar & Pressley.”

U.S. Capitol Police said:

“We made a total of 34 arrests for Crowding, Obstructing or Incommoding (DC Code § 22–1307). That arrest number includes 16 Members of Congress.”
