Philadelphia Police Arrest & Place Rabbi, 85, In Restraints Outside ICE Facility

Philadelphia police officers placed restraints on 85-year-old Rabbi Arthur Waskow and placed him in a police van for protesting peacefully outside an ICE facility.

Rabbi Waskow and others were protesting President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policies, which have included separating children and toddlers from their parents, and locking them up in internment camps. 

Before being arrested, Rabbi Waskow gave a speech, notes 

Criminals are living in the White House who would tear away even nursing children from their mother’s breasts — we implore you as citizens to be aware of the criminals that are wrecking the decent lives of decent families.
