Capitol Police arrested 70 people in the Senate office building Thursday, including a 90-year-old nun, as demonstrators gathered to protest the administration’s immigration policies.

The arrests came as tensions flared on Capitol Hill surrounding the immigration debate, including allegations of massive overcrowding and unsanitary conditions at U.S. Border Patrol facilities.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The United States Capitol Police arrested 70 individuals for unlawfully demonstrating in the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building. All were charged with D.C. Code §22-1307, Crowding, Obstructing, or Incommoding,” USCP Communications Director Eva Malecki wrote in an email.

90-year-old Sister Pat Murphy, a member of the Sisters of Mercy, was one of the people arrested.

“These are our brothers and sisters and they are part of the human family and how can we not? I mean, any person with any human compassion would reach out,” she told ABC News by phone. “What is going on is, it’s just abominable. It’s a horrific situation that’s happening right now.”
