More than 100 people were arrested at the U.S. Capitol Thursday in an action organized by the Poor People’s Campaign to protest the Trump administration’s mistreatment of immigrants. Among those arrested included the Rev. William Barber and David Goodman, the brother of slain civil rights worker Andrew Goodman. Thursday’s action took place on the anniversary of the 1964 disappearance of James Chaney, Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman, whose bodies were found buried in a dam in Philadelphia, Mississippi, on August 4 of that year. The Poor People’s Campaign is holding a major march on the U.S. Capitol on Saturday.
