Susan Sarandon is encouraging others to take part in demonstrations protesting US President Donald Trump's controversial immigration policies, despite being arrested for doing so herself.

The Thelma & Louise star was one of 575 women reportedly arrested and charged with unlawfully demonstrating at the rally, which took place at a US Senate building in Washington.
Sarandon took to Twitter following her arrest to make a statement.
"Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey," she said.
"It was worth it. There's more protests nationwide... find one near you."
Demonstrations have taken place across the US this weekend, in part triggered by the forced separation of families at the border with Mexico.
A reported 2342 children were taken away from their parents by US authorities in just a month, with the Trump administration eventually caving to public pressure and pulling an embarrassing U-turn on the policy.
The president signed an executive order which promises to keep families together, but has not addressed what will happen to those already separated.
