A Democratic lawmaker collapsed during a rally Wednesday in Washington, D.C., where several left-wing grassroots activists mixed with politicos to protest the Trump administration’s policy which allows illegal immigrants to be separated from their children.
Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., fell on the street in front of the U.S. Customs & Border Protection building, according to a CNN journalist, after protesters chanted, “Until they arrest us, we will stay here, however long it takes.”
Crowley, 56, was then taken to a nearby hotel and later tweeted that he was “doing fine now,” before adding, “Wish I could say the same for the children and parents at the border.”
Thanks for everyone's concern -doing fine now.
Wish I could say the same for the children and parents at the border.

The article goes on to state the following:
In early May, Sessions announced the Justice Department would no longer overlook first-time illegal entrants. Instead, anyone apprehended at the Southwest border would be referred to the DOJ for prosecution and judges were ordered to take up additional cases and not mark them as unresolved.
The Trump administration’s month-old zero tolerance policy was an attempt to offset spiking apprehension numbers by prosecuting all illegal entrants, including the parents or guardians who arrived at the border with underage children.
