At least 16 Democratic Members of the U.S. House have reportedly been arrested today for blocking traffic outside the Supreme Court as part of a pro-abortion protest.

Earlier this afternoon video surfaced that appeared to show Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being escorted away from the scene of the protest, and later reports indicated that Rep. Ilhan Omar was arrested at the scene.

Many noted that Ocasio-Cortez did not appear to be handcuffed when she was escorted away from the protest, nor did Ilhan Omar.

Both Democrats still held their hands behind their back, perhaps leading some viewers to believe they had been cuffed by police as they were escorted away.

The far left Democrat is seen raising her hand in a fist toward the crowd while being escorted away, indicating she was not physically restrained with handcuffs at the time.

Later, local media outlets reported that Omar was arrested, along with at least 15 other legislators.

“Although U.S. Capitol Police did not release the names,” reported KSTP, “they say a total of 34 people, including 16 members of Congress, were arrested for blocking First Street Northeast.”

Video has surfaced showing several representatives – known as “the squad” for their far left ideology and opposition to 45th President Donald Trump – appearing to be detained by police at the protest.

Capitol Police say they have not released the full number of arrests and plan to this afternoon, according to The Daily Caller.

One reporter claims that, in total, 17 House Democrats were arrested during the protest.

Among them, according to Henry Rodgers, were Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Bush, Omar, Carolyn Maloney, Ayanna Pressley, Madeleine Dean, Nydia Velazquez, Barbara Lee, Jackie Speier, Katherine Clark, Sara Jacobs, Rashida Tlaib, Andy Levin, Alma Adams, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Veronica Escobar, and Jan Schakowsky.

The center right publication noted that Democratic Rep. Cori Bush, who attended the protest, tweeted that she and her fellow Democrats “put” their “bodies on the line” during the protest.

The protesters were apparently blocking traffic outside the Supreme Court to protest the Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which returned the right to legalize or ban abortion to the state level.

Multiple pundits have noted that not only will abortion still be available to Americans, so long as they can travel, access to abortion is expected to become easier in left wing states that have enshrined the right to terminate a child into law.

This is a breaking news story and may be updated with additional information as it becomes available.

    Since protesting in front or near the Supreme court violates Federal law, it seems to me that those 16 democratic representatives should face severe punishment. Maybe they should even lose their positions. Oh wait, the key word in that is DEMOCRATIC so nothing will happen to them.

    Article I, Section 6, Clause 1:

    The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.

    now… were they violating any of the exemptions?

    BREACH OF THE PEACE because they were interfering with the normal flow of traffic and disrupting the motoring public….

    Closing off public traffic during public demonstrations has been going on since demonstrations were invented!… nevertheless, although this is better than showing up at homes and private dining establishments as revealed elsewhere, there are still better ways, and better facts, to communicate!
    .
    This was a “token” demonstration… one made to declare that the Biden Administration is criti̲c̲ of the Supreme Court’s decision. And over time, the “better arguments” will be put before “learned” Justices… and not before buses, other vehicles and an “emotional audience”.
    .
    If we can… let’s isolate and enumerate both the PROS and CONS for abortion, and against abortion… i.e., MINUS THE “WINGY HYPERBOLE (LEFT, OR RIGHT!)”.

    Their arrests are as fake as they are. Will Dems keep up their lie that the Supreme Court banned abortion through the mid terms? They certainly know how uninformed and gullible their base is.
