We Belong Together reports that today at 10am, 100 women will protest Congressional inertia on comprehensive immigration reform. The protest leaves these women, some undocumented immigrants, vulnerable to arrest as they block a designated area outside the House of Representatives.

[UPDATE]: Watch live as the women sit peacefully and chant, “What do we want? Immigration reform! When do we want it? Now!” and “Si se puede!”

[UPDATE 2]: Police are now on the scene.

[UPDATE 3]: Some women are now being arrested.

To take action, call your Representatives and ask them to pass comprehensive immigration reform that treats women fairly (1-800-490-2010).
