During a demonstration in support of reproductive rights on Tuesday afternoon in front of the Supreme Court, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and sixteen other members of Congress were taken into custody by the United States Capitol Police. Ocasio-Cortez decided to pretend to be handcuffed as they took them.
In spite of the fact that she wasn’t actually restrained in any way, video clips of the New York Democrat raising her hands behind her back and acting as if she were widely shared on social media.
The dramatics didn’t last very long. After performing for almost ten seconds, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fully engaged her right fist with some of the audience members.
She was accompanied by others. Rep. Ilhan Omar, another member of the “Squad,” was also caught on camera putting her hands behind her back and pretending to be handcuffed; however, the Minnesota Democrat couldn’t resist the urge to raise her right hand and thank the crowd at the same time.Multiple Democratic lawmakers were arrested at an abortion rights protest in Washington, D.C. Tuesday.
Both parties were taken into custody after the arrests were made.
According to the Capitol Police, they made a total of 35 arrests for crowding, obstructing, or inconveniencing the public, which included arresting 17 members of Congress.
