BREAKING: Tlaib Detained by Police for Protesting Outside Airport Terminal

“Squad” member Rashida Tlaib was detained by police after demonstrating at the Detroit Metro airport in protest for higher wages for Delta employees.

This is far from the first time Tlaib has been in trouble with police for demonstrations and protests.

In 2018, then house candidate Tlaib was arrested at a “Fight for $15” rally.

 

The Hill reports Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) was detained by police Friday during a protest at Detroit Metro Airport where she was demonstrating for higher pay for employees who worked for Delta airlines.

Tlaib was seen in pictures sitting on the road alongside several other people as dozens of other people picketed on the sidewalk.

“We won’t stop until we get #fairwages & #healthcare. These courageous people got arrested tonight at DTW b/c they believe workers deserve human dignity. Shame on you @Delta for leaving workers behind and letting them live in poverty,” Tlaib tweeted after her detention.

Tlaib tweeted a selfie of herself:
