Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour was arrested on Tuesday for being among the many activists that disrupted Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearing.

The video below shows Sarsour standing up and shouting, “This is a mockery and a travesty of justice!” before being hauled away by security.

The disruption that occurred forced Kavanaugh’s daughters – ages 10 and 13 – to be “rushed” out of the hearing by their mother.

Sarsour was also arrested in March for civil disobedience when she protested outside of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s (R-Wisc.) office over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Sarsour has previously come under fire for her ties to Louis Farrakhan and her criticism of Zionism.
