Today, Congressman Jamaal Bowman, was arrested alongside at least 20 others, including faith leaders and youth who have been hunger striking for our democracy.
“Today, Congressman Jamaal Bowman joined a voting rights non-violent direct action at the North Barricade of the U.S. Capitol Building and was arrested by the U.S. Capitol Police,” said Marcus Frias, Director of Communications for Congressman Jamaal Bowman, Ed.D (NY-16). “We will provide more information and updates as we gather them.”
We do hope that the congressman and 20 others were not put in the same cell, as the congressman said he found 20 people in one cell during his taxpayer paid trip to the southern border.
By the way Congressman Bowman, we are still waiting for our interview on your trip to the Southern border, and what else you found out.
